My sport of choice as a kid and teenager was competitive swimming. I was never going to be an Olympic hopeful by any stretch; but was passionate and lived and breathed it for many years. I still love watching it at any level.
So I was surprised but delighted when J qualified for a district competition following his school's annual swim meet (or swimming carnival as say in Australia). This past week, we watched him compete for his school in the boys 9/10 freestyle relay. He was excited, proud, and full of team spirit. He faded a tad toward the end of his 50m race but gave it everything he had!
Well done J!
