Head Coach Tom Duer set to Compete at the IWF Las Vegas International Open as Part of Team USA!
This Spring, Head Coach Tom Duer, is set to compete in the IWF Las Vegas International Open in Las Vegas. After moving down to the 109kg class for last winters American Open Final , Tom secured his spot on Team USA for this Bronze Level International Competition.
This will be Tom's first time competing internationally. Competing at this event is the first step to becoming eligible for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. After participating in the 2016 USAW National Championships and watching the Olympic Trials , Tom set a goal for himself to be part of the Olympic Trials on the next quad ( 2016-2020 ) .
In order to be eligible for this opportunity , he needs to compete internationally 6 times in the 18 months prior to the Olympics . One of those times has to be as part of the World Championship or Pan American Championship team. There is a lot of work to do in order to make this goal a reality but each one of these competition opportunities are extremely important.
Most of these lower tier International Competitions are Self-Funded. This means that Tom is solely responsible for the costs of competing at these events. To compound this Tom's wife and Assistant Head Coach Maggie Duer is one of his coaches in the back room at meets so their costs double for each event Tom Qualifies for.

It is my honor to be able to play for our country's national team. It really makes me happy that I was recognized as one of the best in the sport that I play. Well, I am not entirely confident in my skills just yet, but I do hope that I can learn from the best. I will make the most out of this opportunity that I am given and I promise to make all of you proud. Let us go, Team USA!

I can't always be like this. Just when I thought everything is going well or going the way I planned, something comes up out of nowhere and it's partially ruined. It does not happen in an instant. It always goes this way. I am the one who finishes what the bad mood have started and I am the only one to blame. There is no one else to blame here but me. What's a shallow woman like me has got to do with all of these?
