Swimming to Win!

My magical moment took place of the summer of 2009 at swim team “A” championships. I was swimming the 25 meter butterfly and I was so nervous I was shaking. It was my last event of the night. As I stood on the starting block, tons of things ran through my mind. How many times should I breathe? How many kicks underwater? Before I could answer these, the officials whistle blew and the race began. I swam as fast as I could. Water was splashing everywhere and I didn’t take a single breathe. I needed to win this race like a shark needs water, and when I touched the wall, I realized, I won! Even more amazing, I had just beaten the all time meet record! Knowing I still hold the meet record is an amazing feeling and that is why this is my Magical Moment.
