Music. Looks like this is something important for athletes before competition. We can’t imagine many of them without headphones. Almost all are wearing them.
During big world class events this is even a good topic for journalists. Media announces that such superstars as Michael Phelps listens to Eminem, Young Jeezy and Eric Church, there are lists of songs of many other famous athletes which they listen before their biggest starts. And they have different tastes πŸ™‚ Lil’ Wayne, 2Pac, Phil Collins, Paul McCartney, Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Eminem and many others.
Yeah, everyone has different “habbits” about music.
I do too πŸ™‚ Music isn’t very important in my life. I listen to it when I’m driving the car, when I have morning running and when I get ready for fights on competition day πŸ™‚ Ok, team camps are also in the list πŸ™‚ Not too many occassions πŸ™‚
I don’t care too much what I listen in the car or during running. Something popular, something not too calm and… no more criteries πŸ™‚
Situation is completely different about music for competition day. And my situation is funny about this πŸ™‚ Usually I have some playlist, but there is one song which is repeated for hundred times that day πŸ™‚ Why? Because usually I have one song which associates with victory, with best emotions in karate, with someting what is so important in sports world.
Beyonce – Halo. Maybe strange “choice” πŸ™‚ But I listened to this song since 2011 World championship in Japan for few years. Me and Margarita Ciuplyte can call this our song πŸ™‚ Repeat repeat repeat πŸ™‚ Best emotions, top-8 for me, final for Margarita, dream country Japan πŸ™‚ So after this it was repeated for few years πŸ™‚
Anna Naklab feat. Alle Farben & YOUNOTUS – Supergirl. Next song of World championship in Japan. 2015 autumn. Me and Ruta Brazdzionyte listened to this all the time in our room πŸ™‚ I won 2016 European KWU championship with this song too. Repeated for so many times πŸ™‚
Few more repeated ones for last years? Emeli Sande feat. Naughty Boy – Daddy. Song of World championship too πŸ™‚ Alicia Keys – New York πŸ™‚ Song of camps. Of national team camps πŸ™‚ And all this hasn’t changed yet πŸ™‚ Good things doesn’t change often πŸ™‚ Good things which are related with best emotions πŸ™‚
