What a dedicated and disciplined athlete; her drive, determination and focus already makes her a champion.
Tamara Garces is the other half of the Garces Gals and we are so thankful to be able to work with her and her family.
This was by far the biggest weight cut she had undertaken in such a short amount of time, dropping over 10kg to be at her required weight. She altered her lifestyle to fit her goal, something that almost every adult is unwilling to do, yet at such a young age, she was prepared and willing to make sacrifices to get to her goal. She reined in her diet, increased her training and focused on her goal.
While we didn't get the result we were after, we know that she left nothing to spare on the mats. Coming in fifth overall is still a great result, one we are all proud of. We will learn from this competition and work on every area she feels she needs to.
We are very much looking forward to watching her grow and progress as an athlete, we don't know what the future will hold but we know it will be great.
