Let me tell you why. WizzKid has been swimming at a club for almost 3 years now. Being home schooled, he never had the chance to compete in school galas. He would swim in the national levels, but here the competition is extremely high. He would always improve on his times, and do quite well, but he never made the top 3! I knew this left him very frustrated!
Since he has been at his new school, he made it into the school team, then he made the provincial team, and today, he made it into The South African Christian Schools Swimming Team. (Yahoo...... rah,rah!)
In the 13 year old category he won silver for 100m Freestyle and 100m Backstroke, and Bronze for 50m Butterfly. I will post the pics when we return home.
Tomorrow he has 3 other events........ just do ya best son ....... and then a little more!
