Cyclone pair do well in Winnipeg

Peter Jensen, 12, and Donovan Taylor, 10, were in Winnipeg last weekend for the St. James Seal Program II long course meet.
It was the first long course meet (50m pool) of the season for the Cyclone Swim Club members, who were competing against 200 12-and-under swimmers from 14 other teams.
“They both did fantastic,” said Cyclone president Dawnn Taylor, who travelled with the pair to Winnipeg.
“During warm-ups, they both described that the swims were ‘long,’ but they both readjusted their short-course training and did what they needed to do,” she added.
Taylor recounted a conversation between the two swimmers:
Jensen: “At first it felt like I was going to run out of energy, but after the first 50 metres, I found that I actually had a lot in reserve.”
Donovan Taylor: “You just have to do what you have to do, even though it looks longer, it’s still the same race.”
Here are their results (personal bests are indicated by *):
•Peter Jensen (12)—50m free (2nd place, 31.59*), 200m IM (3rd, 3:17.02*), and 100m free (3rd, 1:17.68); and
•Donovan Taylor (10)—200m IM (1st, 3:22.14*), 100m free (1st, 1:23.15), and 200m back (1st, 3:10.63*)
The Cyclone Swim Club next will be in Thunder Bay on April 1-3 for the Northwestern Ontario regional championships, which is a short-course event (25m pool).
