Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming.. does this make you think of Dory in Finding Nemo? I “sang” this tune in my head a lot this past weekend. Why? Because, as a meet director, I have spent the last two days at the pool watching over 380 swimmers age 10 and under swim the short course championships. It is inspiring! Have you ever seen those little 5, 6, 7 year olds swimming their hearts out.. excited when they realize they touched first! Or crying inside (and sometimes out) when they just miss, come in last, or heartbreakingly get disqualified. They are true athletes in training.
Not to mention, I’m sure any one of them can beat me in a 25 yard Freestyle!
Congratulations to the 72 Champions that placed today. I applaud you!
