Now you are not making any sense. They don't seem to care for losing why would you? If you said they who know they would lose but still participated, didn't it apply to 90% of the participants of any tournaments? Should they stop playing too just because they are afraid of being humiliated getting defeated? I admire their courage and their will to fight in spite of their age and their physical conditions. And still they prove to be better than 90% of the other rest even the younger and the stronger.
