In May Emilie went back to Mataró for the second time this season. She spent ten days on a training camp preparing for the national age group championships coming up next week. The preparations went well, the weather was great and both the hotel and the facilities were on a walking distance from the beach, where the evening stretching took place.
After quite a long time of uncertainty and setbacks, Emilie seems to be back on track again. Her performance in 100m backstroke was quite impressive in the Grand Prix swimming competition in Espoo last week-end (May 12-15).
When she touched the wall, the clock stopped at 1.05.08, which is her second best time ever on this distance (100m backstroke LCM). Her strong performance brought her back to the number one position in this year’s national statistics for girls aged 15, where she also holds the first position in 200m backstroke.
One reason why she is doing better right now is without doubt the nutrition plan that she has been following since the end of April… and looking back… it seems to work!
Here are the results from the ÅSK Games (October 8th, 2016)
Emilie set out as the first swimmer in the first relay 4 x 50 m freestyle and finished her leg at 30,51.
100 m medley: 2) 1:08,72 (new personal best)
50 m backstroke: 1) 30,34 (new personal best)
100 m freestyle: 2) 1.02,20
50 m freestyle: 2) 28,12 (new personal best)
She also took part in the finishing relay 20 x 50 m freestyle, where her team won the gold medal.
