What a fantastic week of competition! Congratulations to all of the swimmers who participated in the event; a great show of endurance, athleticism and talent.
Over these National Championships, Team Canada shared our new routines to the audience. A first showing of what we have been working so hard to accomplish. The Duet and Solo, of course, had some fantastic swims in all events! During this season they have competed many times, giving confidence to our girls and some much needed experience for the Pan Am Games in July. We know that they will do us proud!
Our team, in turn, competed for the first time this year and I must say we did so with conviction. We have been training tirelessly for good swims and that is what we got. Our team performances were not perfect as we still have much to work on for The Pan Am Games, but we are taking steps in the right direction!!!
We are a calm force. This weekend we proved that to ourselves. It has been a great learning experience and we will continue to grow from this. All of our hard work up to this point is starting to take shape, now all we need to do is continue the momentum!
Thank you to all of the volunteers, judges, event managers and the many more who helped make this Nationals possible. We had a fantastic time, whether it was swimming with young girls, competing our routines or cheering for our home clubs!
Again, a huge congrats to all of the competitors and champions of this event. We are very proud of our fellow Canadians and hope to return the feeling in the near future.
