"Let's challenge ourselves"
With this line in our thoughts, we decided to take part in the
HA Short Course meet hosted in Dubai last weekend.
When planning for the competition, swimmers were encouraged to challenge
themselves and sign up for events that they don't usually target or might not
feel that confident with.
Not happy with that, they also agreed on racing most of them without skins... What
a great response from the team! Phenomenal attitude throughout the weekend and good
performances as a response to the challenge.
