Athlete Update: Celina Li proves GS Athltes fast in Water as well as on land!

The Foothill high swimmer has been steadily growing. Having won EBAL league events as a freshman last season she continues to improve and win. Celina also had the opportunity to compete internationally in  Russia this past winter. Celina undergoes what is termed “Dry land” training at Gamespeed.  Its a program developed just for swimming and water polo athletes.We develop stroke & kick strength or torque, core stability, joint strength and anaerobic power as it pertains to water based activities.

Her mom notified me of her latest exploits at her last two events:

Aaron,

“She did well at the short course Far Western meet over the weekend.  Swimming world magazine was at the meet and video taped all races…..  She took 2nd place for 15-16 year old girls’ high point award.  She did not even swim full and not all her best events.  She won the 200y fly, 1000y free, 200Im, 500y free. 4th place in 50 free. She had her best times on 100y back, 200 fly, 1000 free and 500 free.  Her 200y fly was the most impressive one you should check it out.  She was seeded 3rd, racing against and also beat a 6ft tall  16 year-old girl who was interviewed by USA swimming earlier last month as an Olympic Hopeful” in freestyle.”

Aaron,

“She made her Trial cut in 200M fly yesterday by 5 one hundredth second posted 2:1 6.44. She beat a Standford freshman and won  the event.  It was a very long day yesterday.  She got all personal best times on all 3 events she swam (200m fly, 50m free and 800m free).   She did not get to swim the first event (200m fly) until noon.

Thanks so very much in your work with her. It continues to be the edge she needs.”
