By Isabella K
Do you have a dream that you have been working so hard to achieve? Your chance is right around the corner but you need to work extra hard. Two girls from different teams, different coach expectation and mismatched technique are both going for a championship time in 50 free and 200 breast . On December 14 there’s a swim meet called JP fiset at the kinsmen centre pool in Edmonton. Teams from all over Alberta will be attending! Two girls from Calgary Isabella from U of C Dinos and Lauren from Killarney swim club are going for a championship time in 50 free and 200 breast. These specific swims that they are focusing on are so important because getting a champ time can qualify them to go to another important meet.
What is your goal? Isabella is wanting to get a championship time in 50 free. The champ time is 30.5 and right now Isabella goes a 32.81 so she needs to take off about two seconds. Lauren wants a championship time in 200 breast and she goes a 3.27 and the champ time is 3.12 so she needs to take off about 15 seconds. Getting prepared is a very big issue when swim meets occur. What do you do? Lauren says she works extra hard in practice and she goes into the harder and faster lanes in training. Isabella says she goes into the same lanes and thinks of what she’s swimming in practice like a race and works up to being first in the lane. Are you exited? Yes I’m so so excited because my team is offering team travel says Lauren, and I am sharing a room with my friends. Isabella is also very exited because her mom and her are going to be sharing a room with her friend Sydney and her mom. Are you nervous? Isabella says that she is very very nervous because she is a sprinter and her coach put her in a long distance swim. Lauren is also very nervous because of how fast other kids are going. Both of them are also worried that they have been putting all this work in and will not accomplish.
Now Isabella and Lauren are looking forward to the swim meet and are always thinking positive. For more information on JP fiset go to https://www.teamunify.com
