Any sport that involves judges will be centered around politics, just got to do some research before hand on whats best to shoot for. Ask some of the older guys (believing that you networked well during the 1st show) and find out whats best to unveil for the show. Pec problems after 2 years seems like an issue and should be revisited by a therapist, but your 1st show will always show you the things you've missed. One cannot truly have a killer 1st show as there's always a few tips to the sport that you can prep for the next time. Congrats on making it that far and hope to see more from ya!
P.S. Dont let the clavicle comment bother ya lol
