The two partners in figure skating (Zack and Celeste) and their coach are talking about the previous second place on the competition. Then the coach show them the picture of the par (Jason and Cindy), which were on the first place and said: "I believe this just about sums things up, kids. Yes? No? Anyone? Jason and Cindy cannot beat you again in Miami."
- They won't.
- Well, they did in Tokyo.
- Forget Tokyo. They were flawless, we weren't. If we execute, we win.
What is the meaning of:
- I believe this just about sums things up, kids.
- If we execute, we win. (maybe that they do extraordinary performance or carry out intention?)
And what about sums things up?
sums things up = says it in a nutshell; tells the whole story; explains everything
I've heard "If we execute, we win" (or some version of it) usually in a sports contest. The word execute here is another word for perform. It is a way of saying if you do as well in the game as you did in practice you should succeed (win).
