When I was a kid (10 or so) me and my buddy got picked to do the halftime show at a Cougars game. That was pretty cool. I had to race my friend to see who could pick up the most cones or something, my friend won but we were both on the big screen.
Then in 2006 I won 3rd in the nation at the national Karate-Do fedaration championships (invite only) for Kata. My proudest achievement. Ill post a pic of my medal later.
edit** and no it wasn't for National "Karate" but Shotokan.
