The Stallions are participating in the upcoming 2019 Water Cube Invitational Swim Meet in Beijing on November 30th, competing against 38 other teams from international schools and swim clubs. A total of 1058 competitors will be vying for top positions in 2978 individual events and 144 relay events.
Practice makes perfect
The Stallions will be represented by 48 swimmers competing in 144 individual events. The swimmers train 4 to 5 days a week, swimming up to 4000m daily to accomplish their personal goals. They enjoy swimming alongside their friends despite the strenuous training by Coach Sun, Coach Du, and Coach Zhu. The Stallions Swim Team is great at a large variety of different strokes. They try their best during training, striving to keep up or overtake the swimmer in front of them.
The Stallions are excited to be participating in this meet. They are confident they will be able to achieve their personal best. Specifically, they are aiming for gold medals in the Ages 9-10 Girls’ 4X50m Freestyle Relay, Ages 11-12 Girls’ 100m Backstroke, Ages 13-14 Boys’ 100m Breaststroke, and Ages 15 & above Boys’ 50m Freestyle.
