First ever Serbian Olympic Relay 4×100 Freestyle

Despite our 13th place finish, it’s quite an accomplishment for Serbian swimming that we qualified a relay at the Olympic Games, at all!

The Olympic Creed states, “The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.”

… And in the name of our country, fought well, we did!

That all aside, my time of 48.61, in my opinion is a pretty great time and sign that I’m in good shape. Three weeks ago at the Montreal Cup, I swam 49.32 in the 100 freestyle, with a 23.3 split at the 50 meter mark, and brought it “home” in a 26.0. Today, I split about the same in the first 50, and came “home” seven-tenths faster, which I’m proud of.

Hopefully, this is a good sign for my 100 butterfly. I’m just really lucky to be racing at the Olympics, again.

P.S. Happy Birthday to relay teammate Ivan Lendjer!
