Personal Statement


Eight years ago I joined my older brother on his competitive racing swim club. I enjoyed the training and the chance to compete. More so than the desire to simply swim as fast if not faster than my brother, which was a huge motivator at the time, I found the drive to swim for myself.  I like that swimming is a very thoughtful sport, full of self reflection on your starts, your stroke, your turns given the amount of time in the pool, which I think suits my personality.  I am guided by both the determination to do better/swim faster and the dedication needing to make that happen.

2020 has been a strange year for all of us, with limited time in the pool from the middle of March to the end of June. With lockdown restrictions finally lifted, I resumed training with my old club as well joined another for two a day practices and started with a personal trainer twice a week, which I continued through the rest of my summer break. Club swimming this fall will be highlighted only by a few officially sanctioned time trials before starting back with my high school swim team at the end of November. Through all of it all though, I am convinced that I will continue to shave off time from my best times in both the 200 and 500 free given the continued work I am putting in now with my love of the sport and personal drive stronger than ever.
