Eye on the prize

7 thoughts on “Eye on the prize”

  1. I started swimming very young and had a deep fear of doing the butterfly in a meet. I never found a good coping mechanism like your daughter did but bravo for her! It’s a hard stroke and requires persistance and elegance. Sounds like she’s already more than successful.


  2. Aah the dreaded butterfly. My daughter is 13 now and it is her least favourite stroke too. When she first started swimming competitively she tried to avoid it until she realized she needed it for the individual medley. Swimming requires so much courage and persistence. Not for the faint hearted. Well done to your daughter.
