Swim meets changed this year for Benjamin. No more splitting up results by year of birth - his category now includes 11-14 year olds. Yikes!
But he took the changes in stride, and had a great meet.
They also split up the regions differently this year due to the French regions reform (we are now supposed to say we are in "Hauts de France" instead of "Picardy"), so he's swimming against different kids than last year. One club is from the town of "Noyons," which Benjamin suggested wasn't such a great name for a swim team.... since it means "we drown" in French.
