Yesterday and today I went to NHSDLC Shanghai competition. We won all four rounds yesterday, which was like phew because we thought we wouldn’t even break.
Saw a lot of professional-looking debaters with boxes to hold up their computers and all that.
Learned a lot, but I am now writing this after the octofinals round, so you probably can infer that that round did not go well. We won the double octofinals with a very close call, and now the breaks aren’t announced yet, but we think we lost this. Our opponents were really strong, professional, and aggressive.
More updates as soon as the breaks are announced. We were in Flight A, so it might take a while.
Now the results are out! We, apparently, lost the octofinals and became poor octofinalists.
Learned a lot today, but overall this was really sad. Got to go to math class…
