Today was the close out of the short course season. It was a showdown between just 2 teams and the team with the highest percentage of personal bests got the trophy for the year. I knew it would be a fun meet because the coach put them all in events in which he was sure they could beat their old time. In the end, their team didn't win the trophy but it certainly wasn't due to the Jin kids. 9 events total and 9 PRs!
50 Free: He did awesome at this, cutting off over 4.5 seconds. His new pr of 38.29 is just .2 seconds off a B time!
50 Fly: He shaved off almost a second for a time of 49.47! You can see his video below.
100 Free: He crushed his old time in this by 5.5 seconds for a time of 1:25.57 and his very first B time!! To make it all even better, his teacher stopped by to watch him swim his last 2 events. Oscar was so excited to see him there!
200 Free: The last time she swam this was about 2 years ago, so we knew that she'd crush her old time. But when she took off over 46 seconds for her new BB time of 2:53.32, it was a shock!
100 Fly: She swam this earlier in the season for the first time and really enjoyed it. Today she shaved of just .18 seconds, but a best time is a best time!
100 Breast: She cut off over 5 seconds in the event for her second new BB time of the day: 1:43.51
50 Free: Johan started off the meet with a bang, cutting off over 4 seconds for a time of 43.73!
50 Breast: He kept up the trend by cutting off over 4 seconds in this event as well. You can see the video below. Although I was happy with his progress, it kind of made me sad because he used to swim the breaststroke with the biggest smile on his face. Now he looks more like a "real swimmer" while doing it. Not nearly as cute!
100 Breast: He did amazing by cutting off 15 seconds for a new best time of 2:02.37. I should note that he also beat most of the 9-10 year-olds in this event as well.
Here's the video of Johan. He's the one in the orange cap at the top.
