When I started
i started swimming competitively at age seven when my parents bribed me with a cat. I stopped swimming competitively after my sophomore year in college. My cat also died that year. Four years later, I wonder if I had kept swimming if that cat would still be alive...
How I started
My older brother swam and my parents wanted to me swim. I didn't want to, but I did want a cat. I got a cat, my parents got another swimmer.
Why I love it
I love swimming because I have learned so much from the sport. It taught me confidence, independence, time management, responsibility and team work, among other life lessons. I love the camaraderie that seems to be unique to the sport and the fascination that swimmers have with the water. I love the water. I feel more comfortable in the water than anywhere else. I should have been a water sign.
How I stay motivated
i study dara torres and read books and articles published by doc and james counsilman.
some state meets, some school records, lots of team leading and positive influence.
I'm an encyclopedia of the sport. Talk to me.
I started playing water polo my freshman year of college. Absolutely loved the sport, caught on pretty well considering my athletic background and had a blast during my four year career.
Got recruited by my swim coach who was also the water polo coach my freshman year of college.
Water polo is an aggressive team sport that allows me to showcase and use my athletic ability in ways that swimming doesn't. Water polo was always more of a fun sport than a serious sport like swimming was.
I don't play anymore, but would love to find somebody to toss around with or see if I can block a shot anymore.
I was voted rookie of the year for my college water polo team and most improved player either my sophomore or junior year. I was also an interim goalie for the majority of my senior year season and I thought i did pretty well for having absolutely no goaltending experience. that was fun.
Ive been yearning for a water polo buddy for a while now to toss around with. Or even a team to practice with and have the opportunity to scrimmage and perhaps compete again someday.
