“When I was a teenager studying in high school I was really into sports, and the days where we had sports classes, I was especially playing volleyball and basketball. One day I was playing basketball, and my friends were playing heavy ball right next to our field, and suddenly one of the balls was thrown into the basketball, and I tried to help by throwing it back and out of nowhere someone grabbed my hand. I realized that it was our teacher. He asked me how long I have been practicing heavy ball without him knowing. He said that my friends have been practicing for six months, and that my throw went 5 meters further. I told him that I had never practiced it, and he said that heavy ball was a suitable sport for me. Ever since, I started playing heavy ball, and I was very successful in it, I even was rewarded several times”.
