      "The other team was not part of my equation. Rather, I drew strength, Confidence, from the sure knowledge that I had done all things possible to prepare myself and our team to perform at our highest level in competition. The opponent might perform at a higher level - or not. I didn't concern myself with the other team's perparation and potential: I just concentrated on ours."
