Recently, I had the opportunity to interview Steven G. about his accomplishments in swimming for the Junior Olympics. The requirements to make the Junior Olympics is to get a time of 39 seconds in your event. Steven met that goal with a time of 33 seconds when he was nine. He finally made it into the Junior Olympics.

Steven said it was a nerve-racking experience, both exciting and scary at the same time.  He told me that the hardest part was the wait in between the races. To prepare himself for each race, he would shake his arms and legs and do jump squats.

To prepare for the Junior Olympics, Steven would have his swim practices at the JCC here in Margate.  He would practice most strokes, such as freestyle, backstroke, and the butterfly.  His coach, Alise, is a specialist with butterfly stroke.

 

I would like share with you some of the questions that I was able to ask Steven.

Me: What is your passion?

Steven: School, cross country, and swimming.

 Me: What was your best meet time?

Steven: 33 seconds

Me: What is your personal goal?

Steven:  My personal goal is to be in the next Junior Olympics, and I should be in the next one at Penn State.

Me: Who is your inspiration?

Steven:  Michael Phelps

Me: Where will you go to high school?

Steven: I will go to AC High School and will compete in swimming at the high school level.
