British Gas National LC / European Trials 5 to 12 Mar 2011

British Gas National Championships / European TrialsThis was an able-bodied long course event with some multi disability events mixed in. I qualified for all 7 events available in my disability classification, which is S9 SB8 SM9, they were all MD (multi disability) events, which meant I was up against swimmers of all ages, and all disabilities, which is not good, because it normally means the lower classifications win. The competition was over 8 days at the Manchester Aquatic Centre in Booth Street, because of this, I chose to enter only 2 events due to the amount of A level course work I still needed to complete, I could not afford to have a whole week away from school, missing vital A level lessons so close to my final exams. I was a little nervous because I was a long way from home and this was the first time my parents were not there to support me, they had to stay at home to look after my best friend, Bruce ♥ (my dog)
