I have spent the past few days watching in awe at the performances of my aussi team mates as they tear up the pool in Eindhoven. So many aussi swimmers are doing personal best times, and it’s really exciting to see the rookies (or tyros as they’re now called) competing at their first world champs.
Australia, with 11 medals is now sitting equal 9th on the medal tally with mexico and Canada.
So far I have been watching the heats on my laptop at the hotel and going into the pool at night for the finals.
My turn to race is on thursday and friday. Today, wednesday, I have had a relaxing day at the hotel. So far Ive packed my bag for tomorrow, touched up my finger and toenails in green and yellow (wish the colour would stop chipping off) and even played a game of ping pong with Andrew “Pasty” Pasterfield who had the morning off racing.
Now I’m just chilling in my room with Esther, who has qualified for the final of the 100m freestyle s3 tonight.
Our relay tomorrow night is the last race on the program, so it will be a late night.
Well, that’s all for now!
I will be back to report my results after I race
