For me, a first!
I have been competing for almost thirty-two years, mostly at the same venue. Yet in all this time, I had never won a trophy. Well, not the sort that gets engraved and passed on from winner to winner, year after year…
All that changed last Sunday, when, after racing in three, fifty metre freestyle events – heat, semi-final and final- against adult swimmers (both male and female) I actually WON!
So now it won’t be long before my feat is officially recorded for posterity – written into metal; and as the years go by, swimmers from our Club will look and ponder….Who was this Margaret Sharp???
