Starting in the water at the age of 2.
Years later I find myself shaking hands with Cara
seconds later there was a huge trophy in my hands
gold, brown and silver all shining bright.
Our names are engraved with a silver colour that is as bright as the sun.
The wood brown makes the gold plaques stand out and shine beautifully.
When I have it in my hands I feel how smooth it is.
I feel that if my object could talk it would yell VICTORY VICTORY victory.
if I had to give my object away I would give it to Lana Williams
because she comes to swimming club every week.
If someone destroyed my trophy I would feel very upset
because it means a lot to me and it was the first trophy I have won.
