Tracy the Olympian

Tracy Keith-Matchitt visited West End School today and here are some things she talked about:

-Perseverance made her discover her love of swimming
-Training, determination, commitment and effort are important
-Went to Russia for the world champ in 2015

Personal best records:
56.6sec 100m
26.2sec 50m

"Don't let anyone tell you can't do it"
"No matter how hard it is give it your best, don't give up"
People have told her she won't make it or have been negative and she didn't listen. If she had listened, she wouldn't be going to the 2016 Olympics.
