Meet of Champions 25 Yard Breast Stroke

Madison is the first swimmer you can see in the video. She pulls in front about midway through the race. And is WAY ahead at the end : )

This was one of the longest days EVER! I'm really proud of Madison.
We were up at 4am, out the door by 5:30am, arrived at 6:15 and didn't leave until 6:30pm that evening! And Josh did the annoucning from 2:30-6.
It was 106 degrees!!! And we were outdoors the entire day.
No swimming for us adults : ( It sure would have been nice though! Unfortunately, (and gross) we were all swimming in sweat!
I can safely say that last nights (cold) shower was one of the best in my life! Ha, ha!

Madison thoroughly enjoys competitive swimming so I'm sure this won't be the last Meet of Champions for us...
She competed in all strokes this season. I can't believe how well she's done since April. It's truly amazing because back when we started, she could barely swim 25 yards and that was only freestyle. Now she's up and down those lanes in all the strokes like nothing! Luckily, the regular meets are only 7-2 on Saturdays, those are bearable. Actually quite fun! It's a very family oriented sport.

To be continued....
