    hey guys,
    i was wondering if anyone competed in any sport at high level?

    for instance,
    i used to compete at a very high level in cycling until studies tied me down.
    i still plan on getting back into a competitive level of the sport as currently i am only doing it for fun.
    just cant find enough time to get the hours in...

    Olymic Trap, Olympic Double trap, (clay pigeon), I shot in world championships.

    Karate, I came second in the U/18 Kata chamionships, that was a long time ago.

    Also when I was in the UK I was into Tourney casting, I was actually a recognised casting instructor.

    Now my weekends I spend dragging saltwater up the beach.

    I also forgot, when I was in the UK, I was playing South Northants 1st Division Cricket, The one year in 1st Division, the first match of the year I made 14 runs not out, over the whole season though I made 15runs, but I was also a seam bowler and did take a couple of 5vers in the year. That year we were renegated to 2nd Division.
