I gasped out loud with each description you told. Oh, you tried so hard! Great story and the title is perfect!
This was a fun and painful entry. I enjoyed the descriptions and connected to the character.

I think you could make a story like this even better by using more dialogue and breaking up the paragraphs.
I can appreciate this story. All of my kids swam, so I've seen inward dives that have ended in disaster. My daughter struggled with diving so decided to swim. We joked that she worked hard to come in last, but boy did she get respect for never giving up. Your story reminds me that some things are more important than winning. Congratulations on ranking 3rd in your level and 11th overall. Happy Dance!
