Donovan’s First Race!

Donovan’s Best Time Yet

After much anticipation, I swam my first event, the 100 m freestyle, on August 31! In morning prelims, I swam a time of 1:02.75, and successfully made it into 7th place going into the evening Finals. At night, I maintained my 7th place standing, but decreased my time to 1:02.06 – both times are the best I’ve swam in well over a year! The 100 freestyle is by no means my best event, but it was an excellent way to start off the Games. After one day off, I swim the 100 m backstroke on Sunday September 2, 2012. Watch the race online at approximately 10:04 AM Vancouver time:
