On Friday 25th May, our very determined shark Paul-Eric Larson-Drozd travelled to Bangkok to compete in the 3rd time trials for the Thai national swimming championships held at Assumption University. This was the first time that Paul-Eric had competed at such a high level event.
Paul-Eric (year 9) said, "It was an awesome experience and I learned a lot. The standard was really high."
Apart from his valuable experience, Paul-Eric also had the pleasure of meeting a Thai national champion from 40 years ago who still competes today (see picture). Despite his nerves Paul-Eric performed admirably, recording numerous PB's.
Paul-Eric did not go home disappointed either, as we are proud to announce that he has now qualified for 7 events at the Thai national championships to be held in November.
Well done Paul-Eric!
