Junior Olympics Medal Count

Two days down, two to go. First day of JO's was the 500 Free - she got 3rd place - which is excellent since it's only the 2nd time she's swam that distance ! Second day of JO's included

100 Breast - 3rd place

200 Free - 8th place

50 Fly - not sure - she was tired, not her best time

They give medals to the first 8 places - so she's happy with her performance so far.






Today's races will be:

200 IM (her least favorite)

50 Free

50 Breast (one of her favorites)

Since the 200 IM is first - she's going to be mighty tired going into her 50 Free. She does have a short break before she swims the 50 Breast - but after seeing the toll all this swimming takes on her - makes me really appreciate Michael Phelps achievements with 8 gold medals. Hard to stay at your best for 2 weeks !!

And Sunday - last day's events include

100 Free

100 Fly

50 Back

She qualified for every single event for her age group. You are only allowed to swim 3 each day - so she's not getting to swim everything - but even if she doesn't get any other medals - I'm mighty, mighty proud of her!

Wow, that's a lot of swimming. Doing just a couple of laps makes me want to sleep for an hour.

Hey girlie, stop by MHP tomorrow, ok?
