Benjamin participated in his final swim meet of the season this weekend.
It was up north in St Quentin, which meant that we drove about an hour and fifteen minutes each way and spent about 2 1/2 hours there so he could spend a grand total of 2 1/2 minutes racing.
He swam the 100m freestyle and was part of a freestyle relay race also.
He came in 3rd in the 100m freestyle race, which he swam against kids 1-2 years older than him. This was his first time to get a medal in a "real" meet (as opposed to the intra-club meet, where there are so few kids per age group, that everyone ends up with a medal).
