I was witness to two great successes today. One of my pupils told me that after only four lessons of front crawl (she had never swum the stroke before) she completed the swimming section of a triathlon. It was seven hundred and fifty metres, in open water; she did it in twenty five minutes, which is not bad at all. Another of my pupils who was a non swimmer, and did not like to put his face in the water, today, in his fourth lesson, swam a length of the pool.
Today was a good day.
