Tawa Pool


Hannah, 11

Butterfly, freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, flipping, diving, racing.

Splash!! The water brushes past my skin. The bubbles fly off my legs as I dive off the block.

Flipping, I turn and race back to the other end of the pool flying down the middle of the lane.

Standing on the podium is an amazing feeling, seeing the medals on the deep black pillow I see cameras clicking and my team cheering me on.

Water is my favourite place, swimming is love in my heart. I don't know where I would be without it.

You might dream to fly, but I CAN fly, and it is the best feeling. Swimming.
