Christin Rockway (USA) and Celi Guzman(Puerto Rico) represented TBAY Brandon at the 2017 Junior World Championships August 23 - August 28th in Indianapolis, Indiana!
Christin in her first International Competition representing Team USA finished 6th Overall in the World in the 400IM!
Celi Guzman who represented Puerto Rico in her 2nd Junior World Championships,(also swam in Singapore in 2015), competed in the 50 back,100back, 200back, 50 fly, 100fly, and 100 Freestyle in addition to Puerto Rico's Mixed relays, achieving multiple Lifetime best times!
What you don't see in the press clippings, is the meet fell on the 23rd Week(dating back to end of March) of our LongCourse Season...and when everyone else in the program was taking 2 weeks off, the girls were doing doubles and NOT ONCE complained or took a workout mentally or physically off! Both girls have swam here at TBAY Brandon since they were 10 years old, and have gone through many ups and even more downs, but have been able to keep a LongTerm Development mindset...focusing on the process of "getting better" each day and each season and not fixating on just "One" meet or every single swim!
They Love what they do, they are Proud to represent our Club, their family, and their Country! I couldn't be more Proud of how these girls prepared for this opportunity and represented our Program at the sports highest level!
