Watch out Michael Phelps!! Amanda is 9 years old and goes to Northvale Elementary school in New Jersey. She started swimming 3 years ago when she moved to New Jersey from Michigan and hasn’t stopped since.

Amanda swims for the Norwood Whalers. At her best meet yet, Amanda placed 1st in the relay and in the freestyle event. She went on to place 2nd in the breaststroke and 3rd in the backstroke. Wow! Good stuff and all in one meet no less!

This super swimmer loves the water and loves the challenge of being the best. This year Amanda has moved up to the 9-10 age group and the competition has been fierce. It hasn’t stopped Amanda though. She is pushing harder and her goal is to race in heat 1, which is the fastest heat, and to place for her team. Great goals, Amanda! We love your drive!

Amanda loves the Detroit Tigers and her favorite athlete is Michael Phelps. She loves to watch him swim and is amazed watching him during the Olympics.

Good luck the rest of the season, Amanda! We can’t wait to watch you smash your goals! Congratulations and welcome to the huddle.
