A great time at the district swim meet

Sunday, October 28, 2012

Being on the road was great fun.
My daughter's swim team won the district championship by 37 points and being there to see them do it was a thrill. Both her Medley Relay team and 400 Free Relay team made State time and will compete at the State level in two weeks.

I like the smoothness of her stroke and think she will be a great distance swimmer as she gets more experience. She is a great encouragement for me to work on my swimming.
I love this video of her swimming, although I missed the beginning. The only weak stroke for her is her backstroke and we are making some plans to help her improve it.
This is her swimming 200 IM (individual medley). She is the one with the blue cap.

    Great video! The breast stoke can really turn around an IM. She has great turns too. You should be very proud of her. Swimming is such a great sport for kids, something they can continue to do throughout their lives.

    Awesome! You must be a proud mama to have such a strong swimmer as a daughter and she in turn must be so proud of you. :) emoticon

    Great video! Amazing how she came back after the backstroke to still win. Nice job.
