As Helen has been swimming regulary during her pregnancy she decided she would swim in the Masters meet this weekend. She put in for the 400m and 800m Freestyle. She has been swiming about 9-10min for a 400m so she put in a seed time of 9:40 for her 400m. Her event was 1st event of the day and her friend from Southern Cross Dragons wasn’t there so was a bit worried about being so far behind the others and peolpe waiting 3min for her to finish. Her swim was awesome, splitting about 1min for each 50m and a final time of 7:50:60, was just great.
She started in the water, (which is allowed in Masters meets) so not to dive on top of baby

The Announcer had a quiz and was making a BIG thing about Helen being pregnant and having 3weeks to go and swimming. Babies 1st swimming competition.
Helen won the Womens 30-34 400m freestyle
at the Standard Chartered International Masters swimming event.
So she is still unbeaten in Singapore, and she will win her 800m freestyle tomorrow as well.
As Helen was swimming I also entered, today I swam the 50m and 100m Breaststroke.
My time for the 50m Breaststroke – 43.49 bettered my time from last year by more than 2secs so I was very happy.
I will have to let you know my official time and place for the 100m tomorrow as we left before it was announced. But it was about a 1:37 and Helen said she thinks I beat the other 40-44yr old guy in my heat. She said she was impressed with my swim
