We travelled to Mumong today for the second time in 5 weeks for a repeat of the Brunei 7-9 Swimming Championship 2013, the first meet being cancelled due to heavy rain.
As in previous 7-9 competitions, all swimmers are thrown into combined heats only divided by boys and girls. So even though Ayden was competing amongst 7 year olds and Jack amongst the 8 year olds, they swam in two races alongside each other as their times are in the same range and in both races it was a battle of the McCarthy brothers. Funnily enough there were another two brothers in the same races.
Overall in his group, Jack did well despite very tough competition to get a silver in the 25m Butterfly and bronze in the 25m Breaststroke. Ayden for the day was in a league of his own winning four gold medals for all 25m races. So proud of both the boys. And in typical Tiger Mother mode, all I can say is, more training to follow!!
Iman was there for the day too competing in the "Open" part of the competition. No medals were given out for that category but its all about breaking those PBs!
