AZOT swims strong at Spring Junior Olympics Champs!

 

Spring Junior Olympics Championship is a wrap! Congratulations to all AZOT swimmers who swam their hearts out this past weekend and supported their teammates all the way! It was four exciting days of racing for our athletes in Pasadena, CA.  Our swimmers arrived at the meet early each day ready to race, and kept up their positive energy all the way through the fast evening relays!   AZOT swimmers encouraged each other by cheering in both prelims and finals, and had fun times at the team tents between races, listening to music, talking and playing games!

Special thanks to amazing teammates - Christina Taylor, Eric Wang, Ethan Ouyeung

 and Justin Zhang! These guys traveled to Pasadena to be a part of our great AZOT relay teams. This is what being on Aquazot is all about…great team spirit!

Congratulations to all 2019 Aquazot SCY JO Team swimmers for great performances in individual events, while exhibiting perseverance and strong camaraderie:
