    Hello,
    I have been playing football for 15 years ago. When I was a child I used to cry every match when we lost. I thought that was my fault because i couldn’t score a goal. That sadness was terrible. Luckly these kind of bad habit have been changed. Nowdays Of course I am not happy when we lost a match but Its easier to hadle it.

    It is not a one-time story, so I can’t tell you when this happened, but it always happens to me 😀

    Imagine the situation:
    You tell your friend, that you did not learnt for tomorrows test. He/She says: Don’t panic. Me neither.

    Tomorrow you write an “F” and your friend writes and “A”

    What is this emotional expression? 😀

    In 2016 year I was in Olympics.My sport is modern pentathlon I had big expectations about this competition and of course I was almost in the best condition in my life. But not everything went well. I had bad riding.I fell down on a ground really badly and my horse run away so I got 0 points in riding. And after that I couldn’t fight for a good place so next event was not so good as well how I was expecting.

    When I finished my sportsmanship career of track and field athletics, I felt an empty space in my heart and one day I accidentally found a new sports that fitted me very well and also I feel very well after it. It is grappling. I feel very exiting fighting it and I’m allways waiting for its classes to start.

    This story happened to me in high school. My teammetes and I had a lot of practise, because our goal was to reach the national running final. During the practise everything went well. But unfortunately on the competition day after the start I ran about 100-200 meter and felt a strong pain in my knee. I could not continune the race so we could not reach the final. After this I felt it was my fault and for a long time I was really ……..as well.

    Microfacial expressions are very important things in the business world. If you can read an other people cover mimicry, you will get some strategically important advantages. You will be in a better position.

    Fear of not achieving the best performance during training and competition or not accomplishing adequate sport result was best emotion which I have experienced during my career. Although fear is emotion which is mostly related by negative outcome, during my career fear helped me to stay focused, motivated and to programme training to perfection. Since I was able to distinguish fear and disappointment I was able to use fear to achieve remarkable accomplishment. So dear athletes, fear will prevent possible occurrence of unintentional mistake.

    My story is related to my friend and me. As children we were hate each other and nonstop we battled and in everything we would have competed and competed, however, as we grew up we were becoming better and better friends. And at the height of our friendship, he moves to another country. Since then, my days are somehow empty without him and I can not wait to come to visit me in the summer. That day was my ________ day in my life.

    I started my career very late, 7 years ago and I never did any kind of sport before. Online I found some info about local cycling club, and that’s how I met my coach. From that moment on we started training and I was 15 at the time. I attended a high school for children who prefered mathematics and my involvement in sport became a problem since I couldn’t attend some competition that were during the week. At the time it was a very difficult period for me and to this day I feel like I could of accomplished so much more ahead of time if my parents didn’t insist on me going to that school.

    Hy, my sport is taekwondo and I started to help my trainer from this year. I started to coach the starters children. On the firts training it was a littlebbit boring, after I felt that the starters were very thankful to me and it was such a good feeling. I was surprised that it can give so much power to me. This feeling pushed me to give them more and more interesting, useful and fun trainings. Now I really like to train them because this feeling come out every time when I meet these children.

    Hi,
    2 years ago I experienced the rupture of the early crisis ligaments in the game.I thought it was close to my career. After 5 month, too soon for total recovery, i did the most important competition of the year in Italy and I won. It was one contest better of my life. I dont thought to win. When I went down to the mat I dont was able to walk and my coach take me in his arms. However, my desire and persistence returned me to the rails. My recovery after surgery was difficult, every step was painful, but I believed in myself and today I’m back.

    A little boy named Eric just met his new neighbour. It was a boy ruffly his age and those two boyes didn’t like each other. But as a time passed by they started to play all kind of games and became new best friends. Every day they played together until the Tim didn’t had to move to anoher country. Eric didn’t want for Tim to move but sometimes the world put us to a test and if we manage to pass that test we will become a stronger as person. But at that time Eric just had one emotion and that is ________.
    Also with this short story I wanted to say that sport is a great solution if we want from two enemies to make 2 friends, thats just how sport is it connects people.

    Hello Everybody,
    my emotion is quite interesting – you can see it and feel in this shot video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsYvQ5Ec1Rg
    I this video there is 2012, 2016 Olympic champion in dressage. Amazing horse, adorable rider.
    I put this video, because after watching it, I realised, that sometimes, you can fell some emotions once int he second – as you can see – happiness, thankfulness, even sadness. I am talking about the moment, that I feel sometimes, after the great start with my horse, when you understand, that, every effort you did with your horses after years and years hard working is worth every second in the arena. And when you already finished your start, you understand, that you are the winner. It is amazing feeling. I have so much emations – at the only moment I can feel lots of emotions. I think this is the most interesting fact – to see some emotions in the face.
    Also, I think lots of sportsmen after their best starts feel close the same – lots of emotions. When you have medal on your neck…

    Hi,
    I was preparing my self for the pentathlon championship in Lithuania. In general, almost all events for me is equally good except the shooting. I was preparing for this championship almost whole year and I was hoping that I will be prepared as best as possible. And finally, that time came during my firs events I think I did ok, but when last event came combined running and shooting I wasn’t so comfortable with myself, because this final event was the place where final ranking of the athletes will be decided.

    Hello, currently, I am doing boxing and this year I started to coach 8 – 12 years old children. It is great way to grow physically and experience positive emotions. During training sessions, we performing various exercises that improve their communication skills and physical activity. During this period, I started to notice the change. This push me to work harder and devote more time for my students.

    Hello,

    the emotion I want to tell is happiness.
    The happiness I felt the first day I put my feet in a rugby filed. The happiness of being part of a group that has the same goal, the same values and the same desire to have fun and be happy.

    About four or five yeras ago we played a football match where I started on the bench, because I just recoverd from a formal injury.
    I was subbed in about the 65th minute of the match, after five minutes of playing one of the opponents player did a slide tackle from behind and he hit my ankle. After it I immediately felt the pain in it and I was not able to carry on the game, as it turn out I had a partially torn ligament.

    Guess how i felt about it?

    Two years ago I had a lower back hernia.
    Hernia between L4 and L5 was very painful, I had also neuromuscular injury because the sciatic nerve way compressed. I used to stop feeling my left hamstring. Tennis is a sport full of back torsions and hernia did not allow me to do that anymore, I spent 2 weeks on my bed because I could not move, I thought that I could have never played tennis anymore. Fortunately I found a expert chiropratic who completely changed my back health. Now I keep playing professional tennis. My mind is free again

    I used to dance and because of that, I had to know several acrobatic movements, such as handsprings. The forward one was my favourite. Unfortunately I had an elbow injury few years later. I have to say that my doctors weren’t precise enaugh and I wasn’t operated, as I should have been… For 2 years I haven’t even try to do any acrobatic or many more things where my elbow is overloaded. But as I get to university, I want to do them again, so I tried my favourite one… don’t have to say, I failed. Many times. It makes me really disappointed and mostly the world, I shouldn’t write down. About the handspring, I can’t do it yet, but I won’t stop trying so easy.
    That was my real story

    Four years ago I was in a regional competition from taekwondo. At which I won the second place in the forms, so I was not happy because I just like everyone else came to win the first place. But unfortunately these expectations were not realized because I did not get a sports kick in the leg by the rival, which meant that I could not continue the fight. At that point, all expectations and emotions were mixed where I was angry at all, so much so that I refused medical help but the coach naturally insisted on it. After that day I decided to become even better and not allow emotions to be so easy with me. After a recovery that lasted a couple of months I went back to the club and I try day after day to be all in the sport I love.

    Here is my story about mix of my emotion expressions in only one situation.
    3 years ago, I was on national senior championship in karate. I played very well on that competition, and at the end I was in finals, with the one of the best girls in my category. And I won! I become national champion for the third time in my life in row. I was very happy and proud of myself!
    But, something went wrong. In five minutes arrived very bad news. Somebody told judges that I am not old enough for that category, even If I was.
    They decided to cancel competition in that category and I was not on the new list! They did not even ask me for ID or something like that. They have done everything again but this time without me. The other girl was winner. I was sad and dissapointed, and I was crying because I knew how much I’ve been working for that. But my coach approved that he is the best coach on the planet. He found clue and gave it to judges. They were very sorry about everything, and on my suprise, they repeated everything again! I could not believe in that. After 5 matches – I was again national championship!

    Happy, proud, curious, pumped and at the same time dissappointed in system.

    check out my story.. Last year I participated on Balkan Championship in Karate. It was big thing, my role in national team was depending on this competition. I was so scared ( that would be my first emotion/expression) My match was first, fight was with a girl from Hungary. When match started, first point was mine.. how the fight was going result was better for me, in second minute my score was 5:0. I was so …. (second expression) , my place in national team was guaranteed!! But something happened, she kicked me with her leg and that was 3 points for her, so in that moment result was 5:3, I was still leading but not as good as 10 seconds before. Then I realized I have 50 seconds till the end of the match. I have relaxed thinking I am wining. 10 seconds before the end she kicked me again and made 3 points, result was 5:6 for her. I lost that match, and lost place in national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina. I was so …. (third expression).

    Good luck guys, learn on my mistakes. 🙂

    HI, last year I hurt my shoulder, I was sad and nervous because I could not do my own individual training. It was a big challenge for me. After 2 months of injury I began to regain form. It was hard but I continued … I trained a lot and I succeeded. I am happy because I have continued, I have a lot of motivation and I’m ready for new challenges

    In every turn of the tournament, 50% of the players lose and the face will be sad or angry, 50% and the players will win and the face will be happy or serene in my tennis, it does not matter to win or lose and to keep the count of the gossip, it is best to give the best of themselves, then the results will come.

    HI everybody,

    my story is about when I was waiting for the doctors to decide about to have or not a surgery in my shoulder (from a bad fall in my sports, Judo) and in the same period waiting for the result of my application for an Erasmus internship.
    The week after the doctors decided I’ve been informed that I’ve won my application so that would mean that I will get the surgeries 2 months before my departure but the 6-8 months I had to spend witouth practising and competing for recovering the shoulder I could get spending enjoying a different experience in my life.
    So thats a mixture of 2 emotions!
    guess what!

    Hello everyone,
    Here is my story:
    Three two years ago there was 1. EU Championship in my discipline (mountain biking-enduro). This was actually my first race in elite. I came there with no expectations and think that I know was that I have a tons of flow and confidence on bike. Race was intense and unbelievable hard. I know that my runs were quite good but I still have done some mistakes. After a big day we all came to the finish line and I saw the results. I was third in my first elite category race and being able to put out some of the huge names of this sport. This certainly was my breaking point in career.

    Hi everyone,

    My story is about last year’s Hungarian nation final four of the university league. It was 3 days long and every team played one game against each teams. The best won the finals. We had the best roaster of the competing teams so we couldn’t imagine anything else but winning, but at the end we finished as the 4th. We lost the first game in an overtime after a very lucky shot. After that we won by 20 point but we lost our final match. At the end of the tournament the team which was beaten by us became the first one. Some of my teammates were close to crying. It is not a happy story but the sport comes with that and if you don’t put emotions in it it doesn’t worth the time and energy. Guess what were our pure feelings after the last game… (this year our goal is the same but at this time we will reach it!)

    I had many wins and some loses. For me after each losing need one day to calm down and stay with my self, where I can rethink what happened and what I need to do next. After that, I know that I have to concentrate on the following tasks, which are necessary for future victories. Inside I know after three days my lost for others will not be interesting and after two weeks nobody will think about it.

    HAPPINESS happened to me a few months ago. As i wrote last week, I´m a professionell Wrestler from Austria. I had in the last years a lot of problems with my body and my health. But i don´t stopped to train as hard as possible to reach my personal goals. So also in this year. After the European Championship where I lost my fight against the current vice European-Champion very just I was very motivated, because i found out, that I´m just at the top of the world.

    After this competition I had to undergo surgery. After this forced break I started to train very hard again. Just 2 months after this surgery I won my first World Cup tournament in spain. So after this victory I was very, very happy about this successful event. Just one week later, I took the chance again and won the silver medal at a very strong World Cup tournament in bucarest.

    This great victories means happiness to me :).

    Hello everyone

    I am Ashok Kumar, I want to share something that how fate many times played with me and we chased one another like “CHESS”. It pushed me many times and I stood-up more firmly every next occasion. We are three brothers in family and I am the elder one. I am thinking……. from where to start, OK let me start from my beginning in sports carrier:

    GYMNASTICS- I started my sports carrier in childhood at the age of 8 Years in Gymnastics since 1980 to mid 1983 and became State Champion in Horizontal Bar & got 2nd Place in Floor events in U-12 age category (before reaching state level I compete & became champion at School Level, Zone Level and District Levels). Unfortunately, I lost my father in this year and my Coach was also transferred to other place and now there was no more gymnastics for me ipso-facto I lost my fair chance for National championship.

    YOGA- During above period I also won medals at School, Zonal and District level in various Yoga Competitions.

    BOXING- In the latter half of year 1985, I started my carrier in Boxing and within a span of one & half year again reached to state level by winning medals at School, Zone and District Levels. In 1987 again it was my bad luck that I lost my mother & my youngest brother was around 6 years of age and we became parents-less, this situation forced me and my two younger brothers to move with our uncle in village (Countryside) and there was no more sports again but, I continue trying likewise on-off situation.

    FENCING- In the year 1991 I moved to my old house in city and my Boxing Coach introduced me with Fencing as it was the very beginning of this new sports in India. From 1992-1999 I became champion at District level, State level and won Seven Medals in Senior National Fencing Championships and National Games in individual and team events. In 1993 I got a govt. Job and brothers again stated living with me for studies and sports.

    GLORY-FULL & UNFORTUNATE YEAR 1999- In March 1999, I won my last Bronze medal in National Games. April 1999 got awarded by His Excellency the Governor of Haryana (My home state) for past years achievements. In May 1999, It was my forte that again at the zenith of my carrier an accident in public transport ruined my sports carrier as my right hand sustained open wounds with multiple fractures and total crush of elbow joint and left me with zero triceps muscle fiber, ipso-facto had underwent the doctor’s knife three times and still bearing a permanent disability on my right hand. By the above fact that I have been right handed fencer, again there was no sports for me.

    COACHING CARRIER (NEW START WITH LEFT HAND )- After long recovery period of almost two years, I started my journey again as a novice with left hand and participated Senior National Championship-2001 in individual and team category and also got selected and complete my Diploma in Sports coaching Fencing from NS NIS Patiala 2001-2002. In 2004, again underwent a surgery of left kidney for removal of 20.3 mm stone.

    AS INTERNATIONAL REFEREE- In the year 2005 at Sabah, Malaysia I qualified the top level (Grade B) FIE Referee Exam and became first ever international direct Grade-B referee (Sabre) not only first of my nation but in whole South Asian region (8 countries).

    AS COACH WITH NATIONAL TEAM 2003-2006 I, got opportunity to impart training to National Teams Junior and Senior for preparation of Asian and world Championships. In 2004 I got my first chance to be abroad as team coach in Sr. Asian Championship. Once again my serving Department (Education) denied me of taking part in sports activities because of the work there suffers from my absence. So in 2014 I left Govt. job that I was within for last 20 years and joined as Fencing coach in Sports Authority of India, Ministry of Youth affairs & sports, Govt. of India. Presently posted at Netaji Subhas National Institute of Sports, Patiala, India attached with academic section (to train every year Coaches of diploma and certificate course in Fencing). Apart above willingly working with fencers of all age groups and all levels (School, District, State, University, National, International)..

    From 2014 till date working every year for all National training/preparation coaching camps with National Senior and Junior Teams & accompanying these teams in World, Commonwealth and Asian Championships regularly.

    AS LIVE COMMENTATOR ON TV – For Youth commonwealth Fencing Championship Chennai, India-2006 and several National Games and National Championships till date.

    This is what my forte, but I wanna sum-up with these words:

    “LIMITATION LIVE ONLY IN YOUR MINDS,
    BUT IF WE USE OUR IMAGINATIONS,
    OUR POSSIBILITIES BECOME LIMITLESS”.

    Here is my story: it happend at the world championchips in Garmisch about 6 years ago…. it was the peak of my career and I was running through a lot of different emotions….First you come to the slope in the morning,freesking and trying to figure out which material would work best on this icy track, were even Lindsey Vonn, the favourite athlete at that time – and of all time…is complaining about the conditions…then joining the soudcheck for the opening ceremony in the afternoon, becauce you are singing the offical song of the alpine ski world championships in your neighbour country just a few hours later,…and the next day your are running one of your best races ever, finishing as world champion, so everybody in the skiing world gets an idea off who you are and is starting to be interessed in you….crazy,..intense and unbelievable…but it was not over – it just started – interviews, lots of attention and still some races on your schedule. 3 days later the super combined – with leading after a great downhill run and ending up 5th after the slalom. Then one day off, before the downhill – were your are suddenly the favourite….. took some time off, went away from the people, found some peace at a spa, a one hour drive away and recharged my batteries. I won the next day and became double world champion… and what do you think which emotions I was running through? It was so crazy…but after all these emotions I got so thankful for every minute I trained in my live.

    Hi!

    My story started 4 years ago when I went to a new basketball team. It was really hard for everybody, because we also had a new coach, so we started our work in a new system. There were a lot of conflict in the team, to fight for our minutes, find our position in the team. It was really interesting to figure it out who is the best 3-point shooter, defender, perimeter defender, who is the best under the ring and so on. The other important question was who will be in the starting five. As I said, I was the new guy so it was really honorific and…..and a big thing to became a starter.
    I can encourage my teammates pretty well so I became a vocal leader too, but the most important is that now, we are the 2nd best team in the league. 🙂

    Hi Everyone!
    here is my story: I would like to tell you that I have been running for 36 years in a row and I still enjoy it very much. It is something very important to me which make me happy, satisfied. I ‘ve started athletics at the age of 10.5, doing everything- long jump, high jump, hurdles, but at the age of 13 I was specialized for midldle and long distances. Ive done a lot of races as a child and one of the memorable races was the national school championship which I won. You could not imagine how happy I was then,when on the stage I leaned my head to get my gold medal. After that big race came others and others and I had broken national records too( one of them is also an europeen record, on 1500m for the age 15-16. In genarally when you run a race, and you are successful, at the end you are very happy, you smile all the time, but when you are on the stage, most of the time you cry. Why? Because you know how hard work you needed to reach the top. When I won the world championship in athletics on 3000m, wow I cant explain that feeling, I have no words for it. Standing on the stage with my gold medal on my neck and listening to my national athem. After that, at the age of 21 I had ran my first halfmarathon and at the age of 24 my first marathon. Till today I’ve done 40 marathons on flat course, 17 mountains marathon and 16 ultra races ( the longest 89km-Comrades). During my sport career I was happy, sad, satisfied, frustated, angry

    I had to compete in the team event. We were a great team and also really motivated to win.
    After a perfect race we won and we detached more than 20 seconds to the others team.
    I was really excited and during the victory ceremony when I heard playing my national anthem I could not hold back my emotions and I started crying.
    It was a fantastic day.

    Hello everyone,
    My story.All athletes know how they feel about winning and losing. Often wins one, others lose. I remember a couple of sports dances that moved from an amateur to a professorial one. For a long time they did not succeed and did not even have a prize, but during the award they always surprised me with their emotion. Guess what kind of emotion it is?
    I can say that now this couple is a sports dance legend who won the world championship 14 times.

    Hello everyone,

    I went to the France last summer for Euro 2016 Football Tournament. It was a nice holiday because i just finished my master. However, i have two matches ticket for the journey. One of them was my country match its Turkey-Spain and the other one Poland-Ukraine at stade Velodrome. When i arrived the Nice for Turkey-Spain game everything was beautiful. There were fan zones in the city and the people were waiting for the match. After i entered the stadium i saw wonderful ambiance and passionate supporters. Spain beat Turkey 3-0 and its a little bit i don’t know complicated. I thought it could be different anyway.

    Here is my story better late then never

    I have had problems with my foot the last couple of years. As i am a hockey player it is pretty hard to find a skate that fits me perfect.
    So i have had a perfect skate but lost some rivets so i asked the equipment guy to fix it. If he is in a hurry he often gets upset if something is not working and the he uses raw violance to get the rivets in and destroyed my skates .
    Probably not hard to guess my emotion there

      Wow Ronald what story! I would hate this computer!
      I have a similar story: I traveled out of Europa and my luggage got lost, with the cable of my laptop in it. So soon my laptop didn’t run anymore. I had to use the very slow computer in the hotel instead of my super nice mac. And guess what: this computer spoke French with me! It was not that hard as Hungarian probably… but whenever I typed quickly all my words got wrong. I know your feeling!

      So I learned to put the computer cable in the cabin baggage!

As i started everything went as planed, but in the middle of the race a piece of equipment broke. I had to stop in the middle of the race and that was over of my dreams of getting a medal on this race for this year.

    Hi, here is my story.
    So a few months back, my boyfriend and I were in a distance relationship. He lived in Amsterdam and I lived in Vienna. We saw each other maybe twice a month. Either he came to visit me in Vienna or I went to visit him in Holland. The rest of the time we talked as much on the phone or on Facetime as we could. That goes well for a long time, but unfortunately talking on the phone is never the same as talking in person. So sometimes when we were having disagreements or miscommunication we had difficulties resolving them over the phone. One day a miscommunication led to a disagreement, the disagreement led to a fight and we ended up not talking to each other for almost a day. When I went to bed that night I just couldn´t believe that we hadn´t heard from each other in hours. I was wondering if he was still mad at me, if he was even thinking about me and was really struggling to fall asleep. And then suddenly I heard a weird noise that put me on alert. Someone was trying to get into my apartment. So I got out of bed, went to the door and looked through the peephole. It was my boyfriend standing outside my door and trying to get in. Of course I immediately opened the door, let him in and asked what he was doing here. He said that he didn´t want to fight over the phone, but that he wanted to talk to me in person. So as soon as we hung up the phone around noon the same day, the next thing he did was to book a ticket, drive to the airport and get on the next possible flight to Vienna. And there he was. I couldn´t believe my eyes. All of a sudden the fight that we had seemed so irrelevant and all the resentment of that day vanished into thin air.
    Can you guess all the emotions I felt that day? 😉

And after all day of going up the road, you feel very happy when you know that you been walking all day, and you can just rest, make some hot food, tea, and go to sleep to tent, and if there is rainy outside, the most amazing thing is going into your sleeping bag whch is dry, then you feel happy, just happy, and you understand that human needs not a lot to be happy , ofcourse if your hiking and sharing all these adventures with your friends its even more amazing.

      I think, happiness is one of the emotions you feel. I understand Aleksandras – when you are alone, but not loneliness – it is very interesting feeling. You are happy, but at the same moment, you do not need any company to feel yourself comfortably. Just alone you can understand yourself till the end. And after that you feel happy. Very nice.

    It was mid-March 2015, 2 weeks to go until the big qualification meeting for the World University Games and European Championships. The only chance I had to qualify for both events.
    And I was in Bed with fever and a terrible cough. All of my preparations were for nothing I thought. There was no way I would be able to compete on the Level I wanted to I thought.
    1 Week before the Competition I was still not able to swim or go to the gym. I felt terrible… I was about to cancel my starts at the Qualifying Competition. But my Coach told me to wait and see. Which is what I ended up doing.
    I came to meet on Friday, still with a heavy cough, but no fever and feeling a little bit better. I swam prelims and touched the wall. Terrible swim… But I made it to the Final.
    At Night, during the Final session, I didn’t feel good, but I competed anyways. I jumped in, suddenly I felt all the power that I thought I had lost. I touched the wall first. I swam a personal best and I qualified.
    Sometimes, it is all in the Head…

    Competition story.
    I was at the Italians Swimming Championship in Rome, It was an hot summer August, was not my first Championship, but this would be the certainly the best.
    I went here to swim 50 , 100 fly and the 3 relays.
    In this Championship I won my first individual swimming title, in 100 fly.
    I feel very good until June, I don’t know why I felt so good, but doesn’t matter.
    During morning session I feel very good, I was not afraid of failure and i swam my personal best time in season.
    I was qualified with the first time… after race I went swimming for a better recovery and then I start relaxing until afternoon. I would race in Line 4 during finals session. I was very happy of my result, but the best was yet to come…
    That pool is one of the most iconic pools in the world, in that pool during World Championships has swam all of the greatest Athletes in the world.
    I was racing with a throught: doing something big for myself, something that payed off all my trainings and my sufferences.
    during afternoon warmup, I thaught that something was no good, but was only my impression… all was perfect but no one tells me that.
    Time running out… I start waaring my suit… with my music and my race rites…
    No one tells me how i had to do… I know how to do.
    “take your marks”.
    Dive… my fears remains on the starting block, water was so high… 1, 2, 3… strokes were so fluid and the water war so smooth… water was attending my passage.
    18 turn wall… the second half.
    “now we see who you are” I throught…
    I don’t know how I have been able to use energies that I didin’t have… but I try…
    finish wall… I look upside me… I was 1st.
    How’s possible?
    I don’t know… I still don’t know…
    This is why I love my sport… and sport in general…

    Two years ago in the final stages of the rollerski World Cup I was leading the overall ranking (a little unexpectedly) and for win the final standing of the Cup for me it was enough that the second (in the overall ranking) didn’t get on the podium in the last race. The level of the last race of the season was crazy high and for my direct opponent for the Cup was almost impossible to get on the podium and for me was also impossible to get points (in that kind of race I’m very bad). In spite of that I decided to take part to the race to enjoy the great season and hoping for a triumphal arrival with the victory of the Cup. It was a stuff and very hard race for me but I was motivated to ending it just realize to win the world cup. In the last 100 m (after 25 km) I was exhausted but happy to be in the end, when I crossed the line I watched my father face, for try to understand how was the result of my direct opponents, and he was shaking his sad head: in that moment I realized that he were on the podium and that the Cup for me had vanished. He arrived second in that race and he won the Cup for 25 points (after more than 900 points)! It’s difficult to explain what I felt in that moment but you can imagine that I was devastated.
    That year was my best season in the World Cup until now and at the moment I never won the World Cup and I’ve never gone so close as that year.
    I will remember forever that scene where my father, without saying a word, had conveyed me that result.

    Classic example that remember me the power of the non-verbal communication! 😉

So i spend the whole week to practice soccer and on the weekend i practice maybe 2 hours tennis and played championship, so tennis was not so attractive than soccer. When i was 14 years i had a important decision to make. I decided to practice more professional tennis and i cancelled my soccer carreer. How was my feeling on this day?

    Hi everybody!

    My short story is this. Two years ago, I had a competition with my teammeats, it was a team championship. We had a very good team and we thing that, we will win the gold medal. At a competition like this the emotions play a decisive role, and our team won the first and the second fight and we though that, we will win in the final. I was the last competitor in my team and the resault was 3-3, so my race was the final fight. Unfortunatelly, I lost this round, so my team lost the final. I was very sad, but I learned about this things, and I know that, i just train very hard to catch my dream.

    2)Short story:
    In the first game of the season my team had a very hard second half. Winning that in the very last seconds, turning the game on our side can express just one emotion in us. In every face you could see it. To share this feeling with the teammates infected our fans too. So in the whole gym you could feel this amazing atmosphere and the crescent-shaped lines in their faces lifted up.

    Football is my life. Everything what happens around me is about football. I feel free when I play on the pitch and smell the grass. There was one of the most important game in my career on this summer. Maybe two thousand people were cheering for us and supported us but in the second half we had no chance to win and my teammates didn’t give 100 %. Afterwards I was trying to fight until I got down on the ground. I felt horrible pain in my knee and nothing else. Later when the game ended doctors said that I had an ACL tear which meant that surgery was inevitable. I hoped that was not the end of my career because I want more from this game. All the things happened really fast around me. Two weeks later I arrived to the hospital and got a room on the first floor. I put down my bag and changed my shirt and slowly sit down on the edge of the bed and looked into my friend’s eye. This was the feeling what I never want to happen again…

    Hi everybody!
    For the first time in my life I was skiing in 2010.I travelled with my dad and his two friends to Italy. Before the travel, I thought it will be exciting and I was looking forward it.OIn the first day they taught me, what I have to pay attention,what are the rules and how should move. We could slowly ski on green or blues ski-track. Can you imagine what I felt? I thought it wasn’t difficult, I learned easily, it wasn’t challenge, we can try a heavier track. My dad and his friends told me that I must more practice. On the third day we went up to a red track, and there I felt it wasn’t as easy as I thought. I came down hard when we came to a very steep part. At the part I started so hard, and after the start I fell, my skis fell off, too, and I took a bath in the snow. I couldn’t put the skis back, they said what I should do, but failed. I had to walk down and therefore I was really in a bad mood. The ski didn’t go very well me that day. The next few days I practiced a lot, and I paid more attention to the advice what my dad said for me. The last day we went back to that difficult part and finally came down without falling. It was a great end of the week, I don’t say what I feld when we went home.

    It was on the world champs this year. In orienteering 1 athlete is starting in every minute so in the finish you dont know the final results. It was a qualification race, where the first 20 runners are reaching the final from each heat. I had a late start, only 10 were starting after me. In the beginning I had big mistakes, but at the end I did my job quite well so I felt my race OK. A bit later, my friends said, I were in top 20, so in a final position. I was very happy, because it was my favorite race. But before we left, I looked to the official results, were I saw, Im 21th, only 6 seconds from the final…

So, I put a lot of work in it and till the day before, everything was fine… then my younger brother made a horrible mistake. Somehow, he forgot that the point of a surprise party is to keep in secret in front of the celebrated person., and my whole plan slipped out of his mouth while he was alkin with mom during the lunch.

    This year I ran an seven stage teamrace. For this race you have to prepare for a long time. And than there is the day and you stay at the startingline. The first three stages we ran an easy pace, because we wanted to pace ourself. Our results in the women’s category weren’t really good. I never believed that we would be able to gain the top in the next days, so I resign myself that the race would be a nice training camp for me. Of course we were both a little bit disappointed. And than there was the fourth stage, the longest stage oft he seven stages. We ran our pace like every day, but suddenly we could overtake a lot of teams. In the daily results we achieved the third place. I think you know this feeling, which came over you at the finishline. Our success continued and we could even reach the third place over all seven stages.

    Hello!

    Jutta’s emotion is sadness because she doesnt like upcomin shorter and colder days.

    My story goes like this. Back in 2012 i was preparing for a trail running marathon in april and it was in the middle of february when i had a uphill traning session. At one point i felt hard pain in my hamstring muscle. I didnt stop because i was still warm and i could still run further with no problems. When i got home and my muscles got cold pain starts to appear. I had torn my muscle a bit so i couldnt walk for a week and train for a month. I still really wanted to be appart of that marathon so after a month i stared with slow cyling, walkin and three weeks before the race with running again. Obviously i wasnt prepared for 70 km mountain race but i still participated. I finished race with average result and some pain troubles within the race. I have to say it was my first ultra race at the time, so finishing it, had some pleasant fellings.

    After the race i figuer it out, that participating the race forced me to be inactive for 2 more months because of the muscle problems.

    What was my emotion right after the race and 2 months after the race? 🙂

    I am sure that Jutta’s emotion at this audio is sadness.
    Around 7 or 8 years ago when i was still skiing, racing we had national championship at the end of the season. Before we had maybe 10 or 15 races where i was not good or i didn’t reach my goals at each race. That day, before the race i felt just the same as before on other races. I used the same routine before the race as usual. But then when i started from top of the course, and when i did few curves i felt difference. Everything felt so easy and i was almost jumping from curve to curve. I’m still trying to figure it out what happened that day. My coach said that it was my best race ever. But still when i passed the finish line, i didn’t know if the result will be good or bad. But it came out that it was good, almost perfect. I finished on 5th place which was, for that season, really good. All my compatriots were cheering and applauding for me. It felt great. But you know in skiing after you came in finish area they have to check your equipment. So, after that procedure it came out that my equipment was not right. I was disqualified. So it was rollercoaster of emotions in a really short period of time. Guess what was the main emotion at the end of the day? 😀

    Regarding to Jutta’s video I think she was sad when she was talking about shorter and colder upcoming days.

    This is my story- In July 2011 I was travelling to my second World Triathlon Cup in Canada. I was quite in low mood because a week ago I took part in European Championship which I didn’t finish because of dehydration and collapse after leading the race.
    I realised that I missed unique opportunity to get medal because of fault or organizer who was not prepared for hot weather condition and didn’t put water aid station on the course.
    So In Canada I was still effected because of the last race, without the coach and with borrowed equipment. I tried to prepare properly for the race and to my great suprise I performed my best race ever and I took the silver medal and even better- I became a candidate for Olympic Games London 2012. After the race I was speechless and crying.

    Do you know which emotions affected me that time (and even now)?

    Back in the years when I was a young athlete, ready for my last season as a junior, my knee problems began. It was the time after school, when I decided to try to be professional and attended the sport section of the army. I went to multiple doctors and physiotherapists and the only option they could offer me, was to take a break for at least 6 months. You can guess how I felt back then… However, I met another doctor, who offered me another option: surgery. I was told, that after two months I would be back at my regular performance level. So I did that. Unfortunately, the operations didn’t go well and after three surgeries I couldn’t walk for about 5 months. After another 5 months of very hard rehabilitation I was able attend the national team training again. However, I did not only miss my last junior season, I got also kicked out of the army…. You can guess how I felt back than?!

    I think emotions are important especially for a coach if you know your athlete you can connect with him quicker.
    Since one year I’m coaching a few Master Sailors, at the beginning they weren’t listening because they thought why should I listen to this young guy?! It was hard to convince them that they would improve. All of them couldn’t really establish in the Austrian Ranking List. After month of training they started to be better and better and at the end one of them could even win a Race. After all these Problems at the beginning I was really proud.

    So this is my Story.

    Some years ago i was playing in an Tennisteam, located in ther middle of Carinthia.
    No professional Teannis, just hobby in a small Club from the countryside.
    This Club always tried to bring young players up to the Adultteam. For sure the kids have been pretty proud when the get the chance to play for the “Mainteam” of the Club also if they are just around 12.
    So far i become the leader of the Team and now it was my job to decide who is playing. And there was one Boy, 12 years old and super motivated. Maybe not really ready for this kind of matches, but he was really into it.
    So i decided to give him a Chance.
    I thought this kind of Games coul increase his motivation.
    And for sure he really gave everything he could. But he lost.
    But after this Match his eyes have been bliking, and i take the decision to gave him a fix Spot. So one of our four Singels have now always been played by him.
    And now???

    He is in a Tennisacademy in Vienna.
    Become on of Austrian best players in his age and try to become prefessional.

    Hey there, my story is following:

    This year I started to be part of our mtb-clubs kids trainers and in this year we also held the Austrian championships. So a lot of kids would participate as well in the race.
    There was one girl which wanted to do well in it, but there was a big and steep bridge to ride over, which she was afraid of. So she asked me to train with her the bridge, gladly I helped her and so we were standing there after some warm up. We looked at the bridge from all angles, went on foot on top of it, looked down together, etc. I tried that I would go in front and she follows me to go over, but she stopped. She asked me to stand on top of the bridge to secure her and though on and on she stop on top, before going down. I talked to her calmly and told her that she has to decide before she comes on the bridge if she will go down or not. She went back to try again and she did it! She went over it!

    Guess how we both felt.

    During the last minutes of a football match, the two teams were still even at 0 – 0. I pressured the enemy defender, that in order to prevent me from taking the ball, passed the ball back to his keeper. So I turned ran to my previous position, but my teammates started to cheer. I didn’t see what happened, but then I realized that the ball had slipped through the keeper and went straight into the net. We scored a goal and I couldn’t believe it.
    Who is able to guess how I felt?

    Hello guys,
    This is my story: In the begining of the year I got new trainer. The trainings went well with him and we trained for a very important competition. Which was the MEFOB, the biggest competition for collage students. Long jump took place on the first day and triple jump on the second. I competed both days. The warm up went so well, but my first jump was awful.Suddenly my ankle started to hurt. I tought this is the end of the competition for me, because with bad ankle I could not compete on the second day on my main event. My trainer told me: “You can do it!”. The hurt was so bad, but I had five more jump. I finished the first day with pain in my ankle and prepared for triple jump. Second day was painfull in all point of view. The competition has started and the pain was even more terrible than yesterday. I cried between the jumps, but I did not want to give up. I finised on the 4th place and I was so proud of myself, because I finished the competition.

    Two years ago I began my experience as a volleyball coach with a group of 13-year-olds. I’ve always played volleyball, but training is different. With much desire, curiosity and humility I started with the group, trying to propose appropriate exercises and entertaining and growing girls. The result was that at the end of the year the number of girls increased, and the team level improved.
    For you, how did I feel at the end of the year?

    I remember the competition in the Czech Republic. I was very calm and relaxed. I just came and did what I could. I performed last, and my whole team really wanted to go home. I began to rush and collect things on the bus. The organizers had a problem and for a long time did not announce the final results. My team would like to go home and persuade me to see the result then at home on the Internet. But I could not get away from the empty scoreboard of the results … And here are the results. Oh God, we did not expect! – my colleagues said. I was number 5 and got to the final. All had to stay about 5 more hours in the Czech Republic … I did not think about others, I just wanted to participate in the final. I did not think about medals, I just had the great honor to compete with my idols. Nearby there were athletes, whom I considered my favorite. During the final, I thought my heart would jump out of my body, but I concentrated and did what I could. And … cheers! I became 3 among those whom I envied. What do you think I felt when I stood on a pedestal?

    One of my first memories when I started running as a 5-years old child was very intense, I can still feel the same feeling when I remember that event. It was a competition for children, 600m around a lake through the forrest. I was leading almost the whole time, untill the girl behind me was literally dragged by her arms from her parents for about 200m, so she surpassed me. She won the competition, despite even the organizers saw what happened. Imagine how I felt and what happened at the finish line…

    My story starts like these. I was preparing for a bit tennis tournament, probably more than a whole year. I put in a lot of hard work, money and time. So I finally got to the competition. I started to play really good and I was winning. In the second set I felt horrible pain in my stomach. In a matter of second I was vomiting on the court… I wasnt able to play so I withdrew from tournament…

    When I was playing in the Hungarian football Academy, I had the best form of my life. I enjoyed every minutes of the games, played in a key position and I was over the moon. Then life happened, I was starting to feel pain in my knee, but I could’nt stop. The director of the academy told me that, I am one step from the professional contract and he support me for it and trust in me. However the pain
    was getting bigger and bigger, and after one tragic movement, I couldn’t stand it anymore. I was out of the pitch for 4 months, my knee bunged, it had inflammation with pulled muscle. I was at the gym and in the medicin room everyday in a medical treatment.
    I did everything I could to come back to the pitch, that is why I spent so much time there, I would have been better things to do, believe me. One day the director came in the medicin room, looked at me and told me that arrogantly: Are You here AGAIN??

    A long-term process is made of small goals but at the end you can track patterns and evaluations of your process. Working extremely focused in the training and in the lectures sometimes is difficult because of the long-term goals on your agenda. Period of positive mood represent the trend, but sometimes difficult days track a new development. June 2016 last exam of my bachelor degree, the final of the athletics national champs and the application for a master degree. In one week I turned my energy thanks to the positive news that were arriving from the different field in which I worked hard for the whole season/academic year. When you give more then your 100%, you are going to realize unexpected results.

    November 2013 I felt sick after a training. The feeling I had was similar to a flu. After seeing a doctor I was told to take three days rest, after that I could train again. When I started back training I had no energy at all. Additionally I felt pain in my shoulder and my back. At the end of the week I was lying on the intensive care station of the hospital. Diagnosed with a heavy myokarditis and perikarditis. A transition from a healthy young man to a very sick individual in very short time.

    First, I believe Jutta’s emotion was sad when she was talking about how early it gets dark and the winter time.

    Second, my story is this:

    It was October and it was playoff season for baseball. My team had made the playoffs and we were 1 of 8 teams left, who had all hoped to make it to the World Series (the championship). We had not been to the championship in more than 30 years and we wanted it so bad. We had worked so hard all season and the playoffs were here. We had made it through the first round, then the second and that meant on to the World Series. We were overcome with emotion. The World Series is a best of 7 games (you must win 4 to be the champion), the whole series was a long drama and we had come down to game 7. The winner, would be the champion. The entirety of the game was close, back and forth and we came to the final moments of the game. We were down 7-6 with one out left with a chance to tie or win the game. All in the blink of an eye, the moment happened. We lost. All our hard work and everything we worked for was done, the season was done and we were so close, we almost had the trophy in our hands. But, we did not come up in the situation and we lost. We would be going home until next season. We all were at a loss for words.

    Hey,
    so few years ago I palyed in my first professional season by SK Sturm Graz. I was a young motivated boy with potential to go higher or play for a better club. Some weeks before my contract was over, we had a morning training before a important game. In a action where I wanted to catch the ball, I suffered a cruciate ligament tear. So I was out for months and I did not know how it goes on. The Manager from the club told me after that bad injury, that they will continue my contract for one year, because they did not want to hang me.
    I worked hard for my comeback every single day. After 4 months I started to play again and slowly I came back to the pitch and I was fighting for my shirt to play in the first team. I was so happy that everything is going well again. I struggled again in the limelight with a new team and also a new coach and I played very well games. Everything went according to plan.
    So a year later exactly at the same time, we had a home game. The hole team played very well, but we were in arrears. In the second half a got the ball near the goal and I wanted to put the ball into the box for our strikers. In this action, my cruciate ligament in my knee tore again. I know Immediately whats going on. Some days after I had the operation and after that my contract was over. The manager of the Club told me that they can not continue my contract. I was devastated. After a few days I sorted out my thoughts and I said to me, come on you can do it again! So I started whit my rehab without a club and just by myself. I worked again every single day to find a new club. I knew I would do it. I was on a good way. Around 6 months later I sign a contract for KSV 1919.
    Guess what I felt after that..

    When ever I compete there is a rush of emotions that I feel from the build up in training to the competition and even after the competition. It seems that the whole journey is filled with emotions. Even though you would think that each one would have a particular place a long the journey form time to time they change places. This can be to an unseen event or a particular………(fill in). But that particular ……… can bring a ray of other emotions. Out of all the emotions I think its the best one as it takes me back to my child hood with celebrations like Christmas morning or the morning of your birthday

    Last year I competed in a road racing event which took place in a big city some hours away from my hometown. Because my coach didn’t have time to come I was there on my own. However, it didn’t bother me because there were some other runners I knew and we supported each other.
    I was nervous before the race because it was the first competition in the new season. Hence, you don’t really know in what shape you are and additionally to that it was a longer distance than what I usually race. When the starting gun has been fired I tried to stick with the pack but made sure that I was not overpacing. Fortunately I felt really good and at the last kilometer I pushed it hard to take the win. As soon as I crossed the finish line, a person who is very important for me gave me a big hug – it was my sister who came to watch me racing!
    Even though I was out of breath it was a special feeling to have someone there who supports you wherever you are. At that moment I felt a combination of two emotions that are mentioned at the description of the task.

    This happened to me in one of my first years as an athlete. My local club was organizing a race in the town where I lived, and I really couldn’t wait to race in front of all my friends and family at home. I was preparing and training towards that day and I seemed to be in the best shape ever. But then, in the morning of the race, I woke up completely sick and just really couldn’t make it to the startline.

    this is quiet funny and it reminds me to several situations in the last couple of years since I am in this sport and a mogul skier. So here are 2 different emotions from a very long time ago and one which was just a few months ago.

    First time in my life on a waterramp. something I actually never saw before, something where I would never imagine myself in my whole life- till then, something I didn’t know how it “works”, something I couldn’t expect myself to ski on- it is made from plastics where you ski on, something where I need to land in the water and then I need to swim with skis-skiboots-helmet-poles-wet suit back to the stairs, something where I was not sure how much speed I need to take, how far and high I will fly. Something I did the first time in my life with 20 years… but it is also something which is essential for my sport. sometimes it is hard to push to our limits and then pass them but once you did it you are very proud and happy, but before I just did feel ….

    Thaiwoo (CHN) 2017 the season before Olympic season. You know you still need to get the Quotas to be part of the next Olympics. I was focused more then ever all these competitions in February. Working for something you want to reach so hard in your life. Skiing against a American girl, being the first in the finish area; the moment when you realize this is not just the best result you ever had so far in a World Cup competition, it is also the international quota to get a step closer to be a participant on the Olympics 2018.
    This made me quite …!

We played with Russia on the domestic pitch and the result was 0: 0, it was necessary to play well in Russia and score 1: 1 to go to 1/8 finals. We played very hard and we tried a lot, the result was 1: 1 to 90 minutes, at the end of the match in the referee time Russia scored a goal and the game ended 2: 1.

    Hi,

    so two years ago just one week before National championship I got injured. I injured my right shoulder which is my dominant arm to play squash. Firstly I thought it was just a small pain so I took few painkillers and went on a court. I couldn’t play and move my arm and the pain got worse and worse. After two days I went to emergency center and they said I will probably need a surgery. Right after I called friend of mine who is a doctor, he took me to MRI and they agreed on surgery. I could not accept that so easily so I went back on a court, before that I took few painkillers again and I tried to hit the ball but I couln’t even do a swing with a racket. I realized I kinda have to accept what it is it is. That day I felt like my world was falling apart.
    That season I was probably the most prepared for championships, I was winning all tournaments through the year, I supposed to win National championship the second time in a row, and I wanted to take a part at Europeans. Beside that I got few sponsors etc. So I was very sad and disappointed at the same time for the next few weeks. And beside that lot of people said to me that the shoulder is very hard and specific surgery and you never feel the same.
    After 9 long months of recovery I started playing squash again 🙂

    Hey

    So, this happened a few years back. The backup goalie from first team, I was u20 back then, got injured on a morning pregame skate so I got called up for back up. Till then I had just done a few practices with first team. I was buzzing the whole day and in no time, it was game time. Full ice ring, cheering, drums, spectators, etc. My gear has never felt so heavy, strides were slow, but nevertheless I did my best on warm ups. I had a solid feeling after that. So, I sat on the bench hoping I would get a few minutes in goal. But as the game progressed the difference between u20 games and this one became clearer and clearer, it was so much faster and better in every view that I was amazed. Somewhere in second period the first goalie got a headshot. The shot put him down on ice for a solid few minutes. The thought got to my head: I might have to go in! My heart started to race as I looked at coach and as he looked at me. What was the emotion I was feeling?

    I’ve a story from one one of my last competitions.
    Swimming for the University of Minnesota, we would have our B1G Conference Championships every year. My freshman year, I finished 5th in my best event- the 400IM. My sophomore year I got third, my junior year I got second. So it was kind obvious that my goal this year will be to win the event. I knew Michigan will have a really good incoming freshman who will most likely be my biggest opponent in that event. Prelims went alright, and I qualified as third for the final, the Michigan guy was going from the second spot. The order of the lanes in the final goes in a V shape from the fastest guy in the middle, to the slowest outside lanes. So he was in 5, while I was in 3, with one guy in between us. I knew the guy in lane 4 will go out fast so I went with him the first half of the race, and passed him on the third quarter. I didn’t see anybody ahead of him so I tried to swim away and close out the race strong. On the last 100 yards, I didn’t see anybody around me and I thought I’ll win the race. I touched the wall thinking that I won the race. I turned over to look at the scoreboard and I saw that the Michigan guy was ahead of me.
    …I couldn’t see him for the first half of the race because of the guy in lane 4 and after that, he was too far ahead…

    Last year at the University we’ve done basketball, the lessons were about discipline’s fundametals, how to teach the bases of that fantastic sport exc. The last 10/15 minutes were reserved to play between us students. In particular, in that day I felt really good and during one action I was on the way to do a great finish with a crushed to basket, but unfortunately I did an incredible error, so finishing my run I went toward the wall of the gym. In my mind I just wanted to stop myself jumping against the wall to return as quick as possible in the pitch but I did’n realize that the wall was plastered until I got stuck with my leg. I will never forget the professor’s face and also the laughter of the entire class (mine too). Suddenly the situation turned upside down and the professor gaves me a good lesson. I also had to speak with the rector of the faculty so I tried a good variety of emotions on that day!

    In 2013 I was participating in a international mountain running youth cup. Before the competition I had thought that in the Hungarian team everybody is better than me. 🙂

    It was my first international running competition so I just tried to do my best and to hold on and concentrate to my race.

    We were running a small lap and a large one. After the small one I was the second from back… but then everybody started to be struggling and slowing down! I felt that it was my chance to go further because I felt strong myself.

    In the end I finished the race in the first quarter and I did the best performance from our team… 😀

      Hi! So sad story Jonathan. 🙁 It must be fear, but I can imagine that after that you felt anger, sadness, and surprise together…

      oh wow. really sad actually is still happening in our world.
      I totally agree Teöke! For sure you were scared at the moment it happened but after there it needs to be anger and sadness as well.

      That would be fear, bordering on panic.. It would be interesting to see you tell this in a video, as I’m sure these emotions would still show up!

    Hy guys!
    In my story are hidden two emotions:

    I was a professional ski jumper and startet with 8 Years. The first hill I jumped was about 10 meters (and self made with snow). I got the hill record with 10.5m in my first competition. From my first jump on i knew that´s my favorite sport. Ski jumping was one of the best feelings I´ve ever had. There are no thoughts, no problems, …. nothing! – except you up in the air flying. From my first jump on i wanted more and more. I seemed to be addicted to this sport. Always when I put on my skies, got on the bar, left it, rushed down the inure, jumped of and flew I was soooo …. (emotion one)
    Contrary to that, I have one another special situation in my mind. When I was 13 my coach said, that I´m ready for a big hill. We choose Bischofshofen in Austria with a Hill size of 140m. As far as I can remember I couldn’t´t wait to get on a bigger hill all the time. Also this time. I was soooo excited. Ok, the hill record is 144,5m, the inrun in 118,5m long with an hillslope of 27°. The inrun-speed is about 93 to 96 km/h. The hight difference from the top down to the bottom is 132,5m and the hight of the table where you have to jump off with about 95 km/h is more than 4 meters. I can remember that my heartbeat got faster and faster the closer the first jump came. As every time I put on my skies, got on the bar and waited for the signal of my coach to start. Then i gave the sign to start. I took my courage in both hands and left the bar. In this moment I felt…

    For everyone who wants to know the end of the story:
    When I got into my inure position it was a very familiar feeling. I exactly knew what to do. My first jump on a big hill was good, and I couldn’t´t wait to do the next…

    Just do something for the others and you will feel everything you need. If you do some positive things for others, and the results is positive, there are no better emotions in life.

    I was playing a basketball match during a high school tournament.
    My teammate brought a rebound and immediately tried to launch me, with a long pass, in fast break while the other team wasn’t returned in defense. I was one to one with the last opponent and my idea was to try a easy layup because I was faster than my opponent, so I’ve received the ball and immediately accelerate my run. When I’ve made the first step the other player hurt me, so I’ve lost my balance and I cannot shoot.
    I’ve turned my face towards the referee… and he was calling travelling violation!!!
    I’ve watched the referee with a face… Trying to avoid a technical foul

    Immediately after a competition without a good results, my Technical director came to me, his eyes were so big, full, opened and so scary.
    He just said 3 words: “You are a shit”, then he left.
    I was only able to cry, thanks to those simple 3 words said from a man, littler then me (probably my half) but that in that moment seamed to me, two times my structure.

    Guess what was the emotion go the Technical director!

    One of my friends came to visit me from Prague. I graduated with her from high school in the USA and haven’t seen her since that day and was ecstatic to see what the weekend would bring for us. I showed her all that Budapest has to offer. There was only one problem, she wanted to go on the Budapest Eye (Ferris wheel) and I’m petrified of heights. Every day she would ask if we could go on and id avoid it and show her something else.
    It got to the night before she had to leave so I figured I would toughen up and go on it. When we got directly in front of the Budapest eye, my heart dropped to my stomach, my feet felt so heavy as if they were stuck to the ground, there was a lump in my throat and every bad possibility that could happen was running through my mind. She had to drag me onto the seat and once the ride started to move I gripped the sides so hard my hands were hurting. Once we go to the top I tried to only keep myself focused on the views and to not look down. After while I was okay, but I don’t think I will do it again hahahaha.

    One boring Sunday afternoon i was sitting on the couch doing some research for university, however I didn’t`t find anything relevant or interesting on the topic. Suddenly, someone was knocking on the door. I was wondering who it might be, beacause i wasn´t expecting anyone. I stood up in order to open the door and see who was visiting…
    It was one of my best friends, who uses to live in Germany for 2 years! I really didn´t expect that.

    I am not sure if I have understood it the right way, but I will just start writing:
    I was dressed up and I was in my car on my way to meet my best friends. The sun was shining, which made me even more comfortable. While I was driving, I was listening to good music. Suddenly my favorite song started to play, which reminded me on a very special funny moment. I increased the volume to a very high level and started to sing unstoppable. My body language transmitted a satisfaction, which came from deep inside. My window was down, so the other drivers could see and heard me performing wild. As I arrived, my friends were already waiting for having a good day!

    When people are in the mood of the emotion I´m trying to express, they show different characteristics.
    The most remarkable thing is that people in this emotion have wide opened eyes. It seems that they are extremely focused on something. They look very concentrate and it depends from person to person if they have a small opened or closed mouth. The mandibular is relaxed but the upper part of the face (like the muscles there, eyes & ears) seems to be activated.
    If you are in this emotion, or if you monitor someone else who feels this emotion, you can realize a deep breath and a fast and strong heartbeat. Most people do not talk a lot in this mood.

    Who is able to guess the emotion I choose?

      Dear Flo, thanx for your first try on this assignment …. and I realize that we have to update it. The idea is that you a tell story (on video or text) where this emotion emerges. Bye, Jutta
