First 'real' meet

{r} had her first swim meet this weekend (this summer was a just for fun league, this is real swim team now). She swam the 25 free, 25 back, 50 free, the free leg of the 200 medley (so another 50 free) and a leg of the 200 free relay (another 50 free). She didn't win any of the races but she was pretty close in all which i hear is pretty good for her first time. When watching the videos, i realized her starts were awesome. . . now she just needs to perfect the stroke and she would zoooom to victory.

Proof of the good starts:
huge lead popping up to start the 50 free. . . came in last.
slight lead to start the 25 free (closest lane), came in 3rd out of 3.
another good lead to start the 25 back. the girl in the closest lane had already taken two strokes before {r} popped up. the other girl went on to win, {r} was 2nd (out of 3).
here she is going in on the medley relay.
and going in on the free relay.

Again, if she could just get that stroke down she'd be golden! I'll post videos soon. video in post below
