Section Finals last weekend...STRESS... :o
Start of - one of the heat benches, tip over fall on one of my Daughter competitors hand, and chop piece of her thumb orf...she Mudda fient and buss she face...while the ambulance was dey...ah next child get sting by a bee, had an allergic reaction, and sieze...next ambulance come...meet stop...setta ah come from behind tralala for the boys to place...by 10 o'clock, I looking for ah hard, and dey only have coffee, ah drink dat straight black, no sugar, and pyschologically ah feel ah was ready to watch again..
In the final analysis
Mzting won the 50 free and qualified 2nd overall for regional final this weekend
           3rd in Fly                  "       4 th  "        "       "       
Angel    4th in 50 Free and qualified 7th overall - however, only 6 go to final.
           3 rd in 50 back       "          4th overall for final
Lilman   1st in 50 Fly and qualified 1st(by .1 sec) overall for regional
           1st in 50 back       "         1st                  "            "


both Mzting and Angel relay team was disqualified. Ah drag, since Mzting was the one adjudged to have left early, they were leading by a pool length, and broke the (1996) regional record with 2.01...protest...nobody but 1 judge saw her go early, but the decision stood.
Lilman had to catch up 2 body lengths, caught the boy on the 1st 25 and couldn't pull away, just managed to outtouch him, the other boy come out the pool and start to bawl down the place....then he (lilman) start to pout, and I telling him is OK, the boy juss lil disappointed, and he saying  "What ? Dad! I didn't beat any of times this summer, DAT SUCKs".. >:( ah big steups come out meh mouth an he run by he mudda...
... Our men's seniors relay team get disqualified, and after that the fun thing real start to tun ole mas...ah fella teenage daughter try to pullup she father socks about when he behaving cussing judges and organzers and bawlin dey is thief,and how the "mfkers" trying to prevent our pool from winning... and ppl hah to calm he from buffing she same speed...she had to get ah ride home with another family...me din know dem ppl could get on so ...everybody wondering how i so cool, and doh I was outwardly saying "it have way more important ting to stress over" ...inside, ah wasn't comfortable at all......nah, wasn't so much fun nah

Thanks Swima, will check it and show dem when I get home... I think Tariq will be in same Age Group as the Angel this year (both '98)..and the Angel might be starting to get serious...he had a Starlight foundation swim to raise funds, and all ah dem enter they go do 150 laps...now the Angel is the one who hate training the most eh !...Lilman who like to train do 250..Mzting do 270, just to beat lilman, yuh know the Angel went out and do 400 non stop (10,000 metres), they ppl hah to ask him to stop   :o...he say he was feeling good...and he have a sense of confidence bout him too...and he beating times regular an ting, and mzTing who doh like to train, jump-up and ask to go to ah swim camp at Pointe-Claire 2 weeks ago....so meh doh know if is ah phase, or wha fight cause this inhouse ting, but if these attitudes stay, we might see some stuff this winter....and I think they may be further encouraged by it, even doh Angel('97-'98) & Mzting('95-'96) moving up to the next Age Group except lilman('99-00) who repeating 9-10, but the club training him 2 days with the Age grps ('97-'98),  so he can have some training competition.....Now I cyah wait for when they start in October, going and carry them every weekend to the pool, and throw basket like ah doubles vendor, with ah slight.. :devil:  ..cyah let it backfire doh...yuh how it does go sometimes

sidenotes :
The girl who beat mZting, (Nguyen )was her Winter Teammate last year, she won in 28.99(2nd fastest time ever 11-12 - fastest 28.79), she has a best time LC of 28.56..and get this, she's only 11, and swimming the same age group next year...she also won the back in 33.6..

After the swimming the Angel had a House-league allstar game, we reach only 25 minutes before kickoff, the coach bench him cause we was late, after 10 minutes he put him on, they was already down 3-0. game end up 4-0, they score the 4 th when he was subbed off...ah tell him, the way that other team was playing, they mighta get 5 if he started...he agree, cause for the 1st time in he life he get ah yellow card, and was sure he would get another   ;D

lilman get out touch (after leading) by .02 s to place second in the relay, ah ask him if he didn't see the youth..he say yeah, but is he winter competitor/pardna, how he is ah nice fella an ting...ah say "whey boy .02 secs, yuh have it down to ah science"...me an mammy look at each other, and silently agree  "uh huh, lix in he tail" ..nobody eh sayin nuthen doh :devil:

lilman Say he cyah understand how Tariq didn't win Gold at the Goodwill games, Oh,that cyah be right, ah say " Dem boys fast yuh know, yuh want to go and deal with them or what ", he say "Yes, dey lucky it too far, beside he might have to swim for Canada, as TT already have Tariq"....Tom drunk buh Tom ent no fool  ;D


Mzting relay team that was disqualified do a local pool race the evening before the meet, to attempt the record, they swim against some 13-14 yrs olds, and they broke the 1997 record, by 1.? secs, they did 2.01.59. They would have won the regional relay by 9 seconds if they weren't DQ. and broken the regional record by 2 .? seconds


Have a nice end of summer everyone !

Well after Swima post them times recently, and 1st meet today, it look like I better groom these kids here to swim for Canada, they stand ah better chance ah making them team..jeezan  :devil:

Will post there times after tomorrow events, best placing today was 4th, worst 18th. But they both (Mzting, Angel) improved all there times so far, but not enuff for Prov.2 designation...Look like it go take more work than they thought,and certain tweaks in their technique, as I was telling dem, buh "who is me", "Meh ain't no swim coach", "I cyah even swim", 'what would any parent know', we just born, the day before them was born. I  8) yes

Angel is writing the exams for both the Sport Etude/Academic plus programs at an area High school, but we may opt for a more distant private school (1hr travel by bus & train),not sure if he will enjoy or we know enough about the sport-etude program, as we may have to change swim clubs (the training segment is tailored for the Pointe-Claire(our main competition) swimmers, which pool is directly across the street from the school) His writing the exam effectively delays our decision,&  keeps our options open...We live 10 mins walk from the school, but want to stay loyal to the club that has him where he's at today. Plus the Pointe Claire club has been slightly elitist, although they are attempting to change that image-  new head coach, the parents in that club, some from our area are overly competitive & snobish.
 Quality & equality of Life - especially for a young impressionable visible minority, maybe more critcal for our family than temporary successes.

trying to get someone to translate all the pages on the MELS website will be difficult.

ps: Mzting attend (by invitation) a prospect team camp for the regional team for the Provincial games
     Lilman doing his 1 st meet(regional) this weekend, 50 fly & 100 IM, 2nd meet the following weekend & 3 rd meet the weekend after that, just now ahgo ha to take some PEDs to keep up with the driving

Last meet, lilman achieve P2 Standards for 11-12...meaning next year, he will be starting the season going after National Standards, and attending particular meets...Mzting and Angel have till the end of the year (May) to get their P2 standards, otherwise we coocoo cook, as we will be attending some seperate meets...the big problem being funds, 5 different meets, may mean seperate hotel/transp cost for bout 3 = addtl 2_3 k....which not too bad, except 2 accepted in semi-priv Highschool = 18 k + swim club X3= 3.6 k + necessary house repair = 10_15 k, total = no holiday trip back home for a few more years well......nah, them 2 go get the level next meet (in 2 wks),ah hope, which will save us 2 k right dey = Carnival Trip for 1 in 2011, maybe  ;D
if dem chillren grow up and put my tail in ah home or worse mek meh homeless by taking ah wrong path, ah go..ah go.....dais why dem ole ppl used to be cheupsin so, at that point daiz all yuh could do yes...

2010=the only band I seeing is ah 'band yuh belly' one....take ah jump, take ah jump...wave...wave :wavetowel:

mzting 2 best races were 50(28.22) & 100 fr, here is the 100 m free, time:1.01.87 (1.01.55 in prelim)..pretty good at 13, her training attitude , and school work has improved tremendously, credits a motivational poster she saw, "The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary"
http://www.youtube.com/user/maxgyt#p/u
will put up vids of the guys later,
if ah could only find the Angel training switch, ah think we will see some good stuff, doh he doing super in free as well (29.23), as there is so much areas for improvement-training, for him,  and  technique wise for those 2 older ones....but bad habits hard to break, an we cyah say nutten- enuff swimming down dey throat, especially for relative beginners, we doh wha push....yet.. so it will be up to the coaches to try, in between of taking care of the 30 other kids...tough for us to keep we mouth shut, but as the Sunday sermon say this morning, have confidence in the lord, some trees take a little longer to bear fruit, but if it's a fruit tree then eventually they do, if not they serve some other purpose, sometimes revitalizing the same soil...i.e. doh cut dem down...ah start to wonder out loud, "Jesus didn't know no kids who used to swim, especially in the desert"...mzting stop meh from going an ask the priest dah one...saying, "is dat all you guys think about ?"...yuh see we cyah say nutten

We only have two qualifyers thus far for the Senior meet, but I am attempting to get to Junior guys to qualify for the Junior meet at the end of the month in Hawaii. This weekend at Carifta, they will be going for both the 100 and the 200 free and I am trying to put forth a 4x100 freestyle relay as well.

2 more meets each left....Yeeeaaaaa
Angel & Mzting in Home meet LC this weekend, Lilman in Regional finals next weekend..
Angel 50 fr time to beat tomorrow is 29.00, but lilman aimingin to beat his bro SC time of 29.23, he have 30.56...it will be great if he better his own time, but doh want him beat his brother time this year...Mzting got beaten into 4th in 50 free 2 weekends ago and still ah little down, she didn't beat her best times in anything, while her brother(angel) best timed in all his..I showed her, he does that every meet....she said exactly, and he doesn't even train hard...but I tell her he does, he just more mentally relaxed with his training and brings the intensity game day...She say, look how he does be yawning before he race, and smiling and waving to everybody....I tried to show how, to much intensity and stress can negatively affect performance, he not worried about losing, he having fun, trying his best and if he win, he win, if he lose he lose...she walk off, saying I no help...lilman gets pumped before his races....Little do they know, the Angel acts cool, but want's to win, cause he likes the attention, thus does his best, rather than afraid to lose,  so he don't hold talk...Is the talk them 2 does give, which comes back to haunt them...they stressing themselves...but lilman is technically strong so he is less affected...
She sdun start making excuse bout she doh feel like swimming, tomorrow...Mammy say quiet,quiet "ok"...she hit we with, "ok..ok..I will swim, but only to make you guys happy, not because ah feel too...ok ?"    :rotfl:
poor thing, Hope she at least drop time in something..
