Swimming is tiring.
Studying is tiring.
Tired people don’t like making posts.
Tired people like sleeping.
IT’S A BIRD! IT’S A PLANE! no wait its just a person jumping
Fat kid in lane 2 WHICH IS REALLY Cirno in realistic human form with gender change
I used to have those pink goggles. Then they broke.
HA my armspan is longer than my height, take that physics!
TIMER ON THE LEFT HAS AN EPIC MOUSTACHE
Moar fly. no clue why they called it that though
why doesnt the metal on the blocks rust?
That’s the div 4 kigoo provincial team.
:) Awesome vandalism
Peek-a-boo! No, jk. He’s anti-social.
Us Kigoos are pro’s at skipping. Also, notice how we’re all wearing crocs.
Blastoise! I choose you!
Tired person after race.
We’re all running off to do cheers.
UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA POOL. THIS IS WHERE PRO ATHLETES TRAIN YEAH
Dum dum dum dum.
There tends to be a lot of waiting in between races, some parents make their kids to Kumon
Concentration is key in a race
Moar intense breastroking.
Typical warm-up, just dives and turns
Random photo, don’t ask
for a relay takeover
While getting into a streamline
He’s got muscles, man.
I pushed my friend into the water, ironically, it said “Instant Swimmer, just add water” on the back of his shirt.
Intense concentration before races, in other words, lying around and annoying other swimmers
The guy in lane 4 [Red and Blue swim suit] has the best dive overall. Also, a timer appears to be drinking coffee on the sidelines.
Me and my friend started drawing mascots for all of the team, that was our mascot.
Some of us just don’t like pictures of them
Hi mom, I see you on the bleachers watching my race!
McDonalds? Tsk, tsk.
Asian pose with a random swimmer sticking out his tongue in the middle
Alright, picture dump! There are 50 photo’s in total, each post will have 10 of them. The pictures where you can see people’s faces clearly may be removed in the future depending on certain individual’s preferences. Anyways, enjoy!
Originally, when we arrived at our hotel for Provincials, “Kigoos” wasn’t on the board. What did we do? We took a marker and wrote our team name.
In previous years, our provincial shirt was a spoof of something, last year it was “got water?”. I guess this year we didn’t have any ideas cause it was just a plain, boring shirt.
At night in Kamloops, BC. The lights are really pretty.
Kamloops, dun dun dun. The tournament capital.
Swimmers do have lives, we play all the time.
Again, a swimmer on swings.
The program for the meet, it’s really durable, unlike other programs. It did cost 8 dollars though D:
Our relay won a bronze medal!
We’re the Kigoos, I think we did pretty well
Just keep swimming, just keep swimming…
So, my summer swimming season is nearly over, all of the normal meets have been completed, the regional meet has also been completed. The only thing left is Provincials, after that, I’ll be able to get fat and eat ramen with mushrooms all day.
50 Butterfly: 11th place
This event, I completely failed at, I’m not really sure why and how I failed. My coach told me I have like perfect technique, the only thing was, I wasn’t going fast enough. Most of the people in my division are going to division 5, they won’t ever get to swim this again. I, however, still have another year, in the mean time, I’ll continue to do crunches, sit ups and leg lifts.
100 Backstroke: 2nd place
I planned to get a medal in this event, me and 2 other people in my team were within milliseconds of each other, we had no clue what order we would end up. Turns out I got 2nd :D
100 Breastroke: 7th place
I have no clue why my coach entered me into this event, I was terrible at stroke. I was originally 8th but then one person got disqualified, therefore making me ranked 7th. In finals, I kept my position.
100 Freestyle: 2nd place
I hate this event, 100 meters of freestyle. It’s really tiring, too much effort is needed. Anyways, I came in ranked 5th and went out ranked 2nd. I think I did pretty well.
Overall, this year was like a trial year, I still have another year in this division, next year, I’ll be pwning…
If any of you don’t know, I’m a competitive swimmer. The final meet is coming up, a variety of poems, speeches and monologues have been created to psych us up for the swim meet. Enjoy.
Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
I’m good at freestyle,
So no more 32’s.
This means no more than 31 seconds to swim 50 meters of freestyle.
My cap is Red
Your cap is Blue
I’m sure it’s for *hores
So no K for you
God made me fast
what happened to you?
i saw you dive in the water
and as u broke out
i watched you get slaughtered
because michael sinclair
beyond any doubt
had touched the wall fair
you had swam fast
but not fast enough
because you clearly now know
that his speed is no bluff
but as you came last
for the race you just lost
was one “i beat you”
so suck on my a**
I am a Kigoo
who none can surpass
My club is called the Kigoos by the way, Michael Sinclair is just a particularly fast swimmer.
V, V, I, I, K, K, I, I, N, N, G, G, S, S! WHAT DOES THAT SPELL? NOBODY CARES! Kigoos Kigoos Kigoos Kigoos Kigoos Kigoos
The Vikings are a rival team
OK EVERYONE. we are going to have a talk. it’s about swimming. you see that water? you see those swimmers racing right now? these little kids are the generation of the future, as you were when you were younger. between that time and now, we have changed. physically and mentally. we have raced a thousand races, we have swum a million miles, yet here we are still, at this same meet and you feel like you have not moved an inch from where you stood before. but do not falter. I know. We all sometimes ask ourselves: “Is this really worth it?” Is this what I really want? Everyone feels the same. Everyone has been in that position, that state of mind. We get frustrated and sad when we lose or came short of our expectations. But through hard and bitter experiences, we gradually better. By going through those hard times, finishing those sets and races, we become FASTER. Look back and reflect on your past. If you didn’t try as hard as you did, if you didn’t go to as many practices as you did, if you did not unwillingly go through that stage of pain, would you be as fast or as confident as you are now? There always comes a time when that improvement, that speed is not nearly enough and our competition is much faster than us. We will wonder if we should just sit back and watch in sadness as our hard work is put to shame. That would be one of the paths we could take. BUT IF WE REALLY WANT IT AND WE WORK VERY HARD FOR IT….our efforts, our sweat, our pain, our suffering will pay off in the end. And if you still do not come first, if that medal you have been aiming for is grasped by someone else, remember one thing: you have tried your best. and NO I will not say that that was the best you could do, but it is the best for NOW. And if you still feel like your efforts are still not worth it, you are wrong.
I am the youngest in division 4. That does not stop me from swimming fast though. I am a good swimmer, I will go to provincials. Currently, there are some swimmers stopping me from doing so. Those particular swimmers can either fu**ing die in a well off the coast of Finland or they can watch as swim faster than them. One of these swimmers doesn’t swim much with our group. If he were to go into the “A” relay, we would be slower. Why? It’s because it is the team spirit that bonds us and propels us to swim faster. If I was to swim with somebody I hardly knew, I wouldn’t swim fast. Eric, Mark, Frankie, Ryan, Matthew, Brandon, Silas and Delbert are real Kigoos. They actually train with me and the team, I know them. They are people I can trust.

WHEN WE STEP ON THAT HOLY LAND, THE SMALL RECTANGULAR SPACE IN FRONT OF THE VOLUNTEER TIMERS, BEFORE THE BLOCKS, OVERLOOKING THE OVER-CHLORINATED WATERS WE WILL BE AFRAID. BUT WE WILL NOT RUN FOR WE ARE KIGOOS. THERE ARE MANY WHO LOOK AT US AND FEEL DISDAIN. OMG ITS ANOTHER KIGOOS TEAM I HATE THEM…NOT!!! KIGOOS ARE FUCKING AWESOME. WHEN WE STEP ON THOSE BLOCKS. WE WILL REWRITE HISTORY. OUR OPPONENTS ANCESTORS WILL ROLL IN THEIR GRAVES CUZ WHEN WE FUCKING FIRE OUR EPIC LAZERS AND PWN EVERYBODY, WE WILL BE THE WINNING TEAM. NO MAN OR SILAS, BRANDON, FRANKIE, DELBERT, ERIC, RYAN, CHRIS, MATTHEW, OR MARK WILL EVER BE THE SAME. FOR EVERY SQUARE INCH OF WATER WE MOVE IS ANOTHER STEP TO WINNING AT PROVINCIALS. RAAAAAHHHH!!!
WE WILL PWN.! >:D
David is a kid that doesn’t come to any practices, he just shows up and gets a fast time because he trains with another team. Because of that, the relays now have to be moved around. All twelve of us who train hard are pissed at him. So yeah…
