Even if you are used to the cold weather, and you’ve learned to live with the chill, chances are that you will still not be thrilled about it. Especially if you are practicing a sport. We can all agree on one thing – cold weather and sports are not exactly a match made in heaven! I mean, let’s be honest – anyone would much rather spend their time during the cold days by playing on 10bet and having some fun with sports aside of actually playing it. But Thomas Agyepong is a whole another story. He has a pretty good reason and an explanation of why cold weather is actually not that great for playing sports.
Thomas was injured in the past and had to stop playing football for about five weeks. But even after he was fully recovered and back in the game, the cold weather has definitely left an impact on his performance.
Muscles are left vulnerable
Thomas explained that since his injury, he is more aware of the fact that muscles can be so fragile. He says, “This weather is not for me. Due to the low temperatures, the muscles are hard and less supple, making these muscles even more vulnerable.”
There is definitely some truth to that for sure. The cold makes things much more difficult to do, it kind of freezes everything really.
Coming from a Warm Country
However, when you are not used to the combination of cold weather and sports, it is even more frustrating. That is what Thomas is dealing with right now. Not only has he had an injury, but the cold that he is not capable of dealing with properly, makes it even worse.
It’s something for everyone who plays in sports to be aware of. Some of your teammates might think this is a very unreal situation and might not handle it as good as you.
It also makes you think that you’re not as strong as you could be, for the cold can slow things down and make you more susceptible to unwanted events. It’s a good idea to be alert and aware of this in order to stay safe during the harsh temperatures.
“I had never seen snow before. My hands were frozen after training and I could hardly move my feet,” is another thing he said about one of his past experiences.
This was over in Scotland however, not the Netherlands where he is currently. He tells how his warm country, Ghana, is nothing like what he put himself into and he didn’t know what was happening.
When you come to think of it, playing football in the harch winter conditions when snow is falling and the cold is biting the skin at only fourteen years of age must have been a real shocker for him. However, it’s good to get strong and experience new things so that you know what to be careful of in the future.
You never know when your skills can come in handy in the future.
