below is a link to an interview of me on cbc radio a few days ago.

interview of ari taub on cbc radio on july 29, 2008

today i was on the mat with beamer. beamer and nico and several other guys at the dinos club have been my training partners in calgary for the last several years. i would never be in the position i am today if it wasn’t for their help. thanks guys.

today we did a pummelling match and i felt pretty good. we also worked on ground defence – specifically defence of a lift. this is important. i lost to france and hungary on this move at competitions this summer. i don’t want to get scored on with this move in china. my shoulder is getting better but it still hurts when i try and do any of my offensive moves.

tomorrow morning i fly to china. hard to believe we are finally here. i am pretty excited to get on that plane.

cbc tv interviewed me again today for a feature they will be showing on their olympic coverage. they got lots of shots with sarah and the kids. i bet the kids will be pretty excited to see themselves on tv.
