Hummingbirds can flap their wings as fast as 52 wing beats per second. How many times does Nhia Caras kick her feet per second? Have you watched her?
Nhia had amazing swims at the last Age Groups Championship meet that she will be able to participate in. She was seeded with a time of 1:01.67LC for the 100 freestyle. She raced for a time of 1:00.27LC in the prelims to earn 5th place. Coming back for finals, she was ready to go. She had another time drop to 59.79 LC. This will be a nice seed time for the winter Nationals meet.
She also raced the 50 freestyle. She was seeded with a time of 27.39 LC. In prelims she swam a 27.30 LC. Then she came back in the evening to swim hummingbird fast for a time of 26.99 LC. That's extremely impressive. Another winter Nationals qualifying time.
Nhia, thank you for representing DCST at Age Group Champs!
