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.
