A Golden Opportunity …


… for experience, is what we regarded R’s entry into the Provincial Swimming Championships to be. No other gilty thoughts entered our heads.

We were duly thrilled when she acquitted herself well yesterday, but today we were over the moon when her freestyle relay team won gold. So, she brings home a gold medal from her first ever Provincial Gala!

She bettered her personal best time by quite a bit in the backstroke today, but only managed a close 4th. Nearly in the medals again for that, but not quite by a fraction of a second.
