24. 100m Freestyle

Event: 100m Freestyle
Date: 11th July 2013
Location: Basildon Sports Park 
Cost: Free
Rules:  Freestyle technically means 'any style' but all swimmers choose the front crawl as this is the quickest stroke. At the start of the race, swimmers dive in and when they break the surface, swim the front crawl, performing a tumble turn at the end of the length. Some part of the swimmer must touch the side of the pool at the end of each length and the end of the race.
The Event:  


Olympic Gold Medal London 2012: 53.00, Ranomi Kromowidjojo, Netherlands.
Sarah: 2.45.59
Ellie: 2.58.00


Sarah: The third event within an hour, and we were both starting to feel the effects of the lack of sleep and early start. I find it quite hard to moderate my breathing during the crawl, especially towards the end of the lengths. I'm looking forward to taking some time to really practice freestyle lengths in the pool to build up to the longer distance events we've got coming up.         

Ellie: Swimming costume malfunction + laughing at said malfunction whilst underwater = mediocre time (+ personal amusement).
