The swimming competition that Ikee just recently joined was held at the ULTRA. The Pasig Flying Dolphins Team, which she is a member of, organized and hosted the event where over 400 other swimmers participated in. Her events were, as usual, freestyle, breaststroke and butterfly. The first one, freestyle, she finished slower than usual. I was really surprised that she took a long time to swim the 25m course. According to her, the new goggles that I bought was too loose and she didn't have time to get her old one. So, she asked her teammate to let her borrow his. But, the goggles didn't fit her either that water went inside and she couldn't see. Which explains why she banged onto the lane marker and finished 2nd to the last in her heat. But because the heats were timed, she actually landed among the top ten. Moral: let her choose which goggles she'd like to wear.
Anyway, breast stroke is really her event so she earned a silver from the Class D 13-15 y.o. girls breast stroke event. She got to join in the Class B relay which actually earned her a gold. Good enough huh?
Best news is that the week before, her homeroom adviser-teacher in PCSHS announced that she is the only one in her class who made it to the honor roll this quarter. What's great is that the classmates commented that it didn't come as a surprise to them. Apparently, she has earned the respect of the other scholars.
Way to go baby!
