“Ladies take your mark beep!” that’s the sound of the guy’s in there pearly white shirts starting us off. We were swimming the 100 backstroke, my favorite and best event…
I had only been swimming for six months; luckily I had never been D.Q. (disqualified) until this meet. I was going so fast. I felt like nothing could stop me. Until I got out of the pool, and the guy in his pearly white shirt came up to me… “Failure to do a turn” he barked with a strong voice. Which in swimming means you got D.Q. My heart fell to the ground. I did all I could not to let the water works start; I just couldn’t hold it back.
I just wish I could go back in time an fix this stupid little mistake that cost me state. Ever since then I have been a little scared to swim the 100 backstroke. I know that ever swimmer goes through it I just didn’t think it would happen to me in backstroke!
