PINEHURST Senior Swimmers go for it 4 days before Christmas

Author -  Shannon Sager

Being a competitive swimmer takes commitment, sacrifice, mental toughness and perseverance, that is what five of our six top Pinehurst swimmers did at the Auckland Age Group Championships over the period 18th -21st of December 2014.
Competing over the four days was, Lydia Disberry, Snapper Gulick, Ethan Kropp, Jarod Kropp & George Robertson. All five swimmers achieved multiple Personal Bests (Pbs) for their outstanding effort.
Lydia being only 15 was one of the youngest to compete in the womens 15-16 age group. She entered 7 events, and swam in 3 finals collecting 2 bronze medals & 1 Silver medal for her efforts.
In the mens 15-16 age group Snapper competed in the mens 15-16 age group, he entered 6 events and swam in 4 finals collecting two meals 1 bronze and 1 silver. Ethan swam in 5 events and achieved Pbs. George swam in the 50 fly and collected a Pb.
Jarod being one of the youngest at this meet (13) in the mens 13-14 age group gave it his all. He entered 6 events, swam in 5 finals and won two medals 1 bronze and 1 silver.

"Being your best is not so much about overcoming the barriers other people place in front of you as it is about overcoming the barriers we place in front of ourselves. It has nothing to do with how many times you win or lose. It has no relation to where you finish in a race or whether you break world records. But it does have everything to do with having the vision to dream, the courage to recover from adversity and the determination never to be shifted from your goals."
