First Masters Swim Pakistan

The last time I was on a swim team and competed as a swimmer was back in 2004, since then I have been in to lifeguarding and coaching. It was this April 2015 that I decided to take part in the First Masters swim in Lahore at WAPDA Sports Complex. 33bronz3

The adrenaline was kicking in as I was standing at the starting point in lane 6 and waiting for the gun fire.  Diving in the 50m pool and swimming to the end 100m breaststroke. Took part in 100m Breaststroke/Freestyle 50m Breaststroke/Freestyle. At the end of three day championship I had 3 bronze medals. It was the best feeling after a long time.
