Anticipating the challenge before me, all noises cease around me as the vibrant blue of the water illuminates and takes over my mind. While I take my place on the block, I peak to my side at the vibrant yellows, blues, greens and purples of the crowd. as my fear sets in, everything around me flashes to black and white, save for my only obstacle, the crystal blue. Once the horn blares, I am assaulted by colors and noises as my body is encompassed by turbulent waters.
