One round down with two left to go:
“You’re moving like you’re stuck in gum,”
Coach pleads for a different outcome.
He trained hard to put on a show;
Adrenaline drops, now he’s slow.
All of his muscles seem to fail,
A deep breath in and long exhale.
If he can’t find a second wind,
Hopes of victory will get pinned.
Round two begins the epic tale.
