In the minute you have to take notes for this question, you should organize your brainstorm according to what happened before the competition, during the competition, and after the competition.

Events and experience fit perfectly with our high-scoring strategy of telling a story.

This way, it is organized from beginning to end, and you use a wider variety of linking words such as initially, at this time, at this point, and eventually.
