BANG!!! That was the starting signal, I could see the rays of sun from the peachy red sky as I heard the first person dive into the water with a big splash. A drip of chlorine dashed into my eye like a rocket landing on the moon, I tried to wipe it out but it made it worse. Then all of a sudden, it was my go. I dived into the water, head first and man it hurt. But I kept on going (freestyle). 1,2,3 breath. 1,2,3 breath. 1,2,3,4! I had done one to many strokes but I had to keep on going for my team, and for me. I looked to one side. Oh no I've been overtaken. So I looked to the other side. Oh no this is terrible - I'm coming last place! I have to speed up for the team, I thought. When I got to the end I found out that my team had come. . . .first place! I won it for them. Then my team carried me and it was great. I felt like the king of the castle.
