“My biggest regret is last year the state swim meet I placed 4th going into the 100 back. Backstroke is my best stroke, so going into state I wasn’t too worried about that swim. I ended up swimming horribly because I wasn’t prepared for the event and because I blew it off. I placed 16th when I should have been able to podium and drop time. I didn’t know what place I had received right after my swim because I didn’t know the results of the other heat. However, when I saw that I had added time I was so disappointed because that was the event I expected to do really well in. When I walked over to my coach and he told me I got 16th it didn’t really register at first. However, when I got into the warm-down pool I started thinking and I was really disappointed in  because that was the event I expected to do really well in.
