Stepping Stones Towards London

Hello Everyone its been a while but I am back at it. Expect weekly updates starting next week. So how did I do at the Trials? I won the 50 Breaststroke defending my National Championship title clocking a 28.18. Additionally, I went a best time in my 200 Breaststroke stopping the clock at  2:13.97 currently ranking me 37th in the World.  In the final of the 200 Breaststroke I was facing pretty tough competition with 2 former Olympians one of which came 4th in the last Olympics. It was a great race I came 3rd making the podium. While I didn't qualify for the Worlds Team I am preparing for the Trials this summer for the Pan Am Games which will be in Mexico.

I would like to Thank the following: My Parents, Swim Ontario, Toronto Swim Club, The Toronto High Performance Centre, Quest For Gold and of course my coaches and teammates. I would not have been able to come this far without you.
