Young swimmer Nakita Steele recently came back from the Ontario Federation of School Athletics Associations’ (OFSAA) swimming championship proudly bearing a silver medal.
During the championship, Steele won second place on the 50m butterfly and fourth place on the 50m freestyle.
A grade 10 student at École secondaire catholique Embrun, Steele has been swimming competitively since she was eight years old.
“I was really nervous before the race. After I was done, I looked at my time and ranking. Second place! I was really happy.”
When asked what goals she had set for herself, she answered:
“I was hoping to bring back a medal. Mission accomplished!”
The OFSAA swimming championship was held in Windsor, Ontario, on February 27 and 28, 2018.
