What it means to dare to dream

Today, Aaron Canavan, the reigning WSS World Champion shared this on Facebook:

So early this morning I was asked to do an interview for local Jersey Media, it went as they usually do apart from the last question which was…..

“The format in the Rockit 6 reds world seniors snooker championship was £20,000 winner takes all. Don’t you feel a little aggrieved to walk away with nothing?”

My reply was this, which I wanted to share with everyone.

“12 months ago I was a snooker player who played in his local club three times a week, I’m now current world seniors snooker champion and on Sunday night I walked out in front of a huge area of people and played my snooker hero, Jimmy white, in a major final, live on television. I also played a former world champion Ken Doherty and the absolute legend Tony Drago and won that day. There are millions of amateur snooker players all over the world and you can bet your last fiver that every single one of them wanted to be in my shoes on Sunday night ….. The motto of the snooker legends tour is #daretodream, I have another for myself. #livingthedream so my answer is no, I don’t feel aggrieved in the slightest, all my childhood dreams came true and I got everything I ever wanted as a snooker player on Sunday night. Now I want to do it again”

Aaron.

Thank you for sharing this Aaron.

  2. […] Aaron Canavan, the reigning World Champion is seed number two. Aaron had a rather quiet season but he’s coming to form. He was runner-up at the WSS ROKiT Six Reds championship 2019, and again last week-end in Leeds. He’s a very serious contender. Last year, he paraded his World Champion’s trophy at the Crucible, this year he will hope to lift the Masters trophy there. Aaron absolutely loves the WSS tour and what it brings to his life. You can read his testimony here. […]
