Winnipeg – Prairie Winter Invitational 2004

Yesterday at 6:00am a chartered bus left the University of Lethbridge and took the Swim Team to the airport in Calgary. By 2:30 we had arrived in Winnipeg and were in the pool warming up. I got two best times yesterday, one in the 50 Fly and another in the 50 Breast. I placed 14th in Fly and 7th in Breast.

Today I swam the 200 Free and got another best time. I placed 14th. I also swam the 50 Free and got 8th going into the semi-finals. After the finals I moved up one rank to 7th for the finals tomorrow. In the semi-finals I went my second fastest 50 Free time (24.80).

I’m having a great time here. My team has been having such great swims — there are a lot of us swimming personal bests.

Anyway for now I’m just chilling out in the hotel using their free high speed internet connection while watching The Princess Bride on TV. I think in the future all hotels should have free wireless.
