8 medals in the Age Group Championships

Last weekend, IKM 2016 200 suEmilie really tested her range in the Age Group Championships, where she entered 14 events in three days. She could had entered 15, but chose not to participate in the 100 breaststroke final. Despite this ordeal she managed to claim not less than 8 medals, 5 individual and 3 in the relays. She also broke her records in six events and made two other personal bests in the relays – unfortunately, not statistically significant.

Emilie managed well considering the fact that she had almost no time for recovery between some of the events. On Saturday, for example, there were only 30 minutes between the energy consuming 400 IM and the following 100 back. Still she touched the wall in 1.04.32.

On Sunday morning, she seemed to be quite exhausted finishing 6 seconds behind her personal best in the 200 back. Still finishing second. Immediately after having received her medal she was back in the pool taking 0.53 seconds (!) off her personal best in the 100 IM. What makes it quite unbelievable is that there were only 25 minutes between the two events. The same thing seemed to repeat itself in the afternoon where she finished the 100 freestyle in 1.01.39 and one hour later she finished the 4x50m freestyle relay with a new personal best in 50m: the impressive time of 26.78! No wonder her trainer was speechless! The team finished fourth in this relay.
