90% of the folks who attain guru status never compete in anything. It takes big balls to show up at all, endure the rigors of training, and put forth your best effort of the day. Think of how many 'superstars' you know of who talk a good game but either never did a damn thing but theorize or rest on their youthful laurels. All actual active competitors are solid individuals.
The key to a successful athletic career is the analysis of event performance and subsequent intelligent adjustments to training and event strategy. Every time I lose I am one step closer to the big win. You have lots of pictures of the event and a detailed log. Spend a few days resting up and then begin your campaign for revenge by designing a training routine that will help you improve your physical and technical weaknesses. Use that burning feeling that accompanies loss to fuel your workouts.
