A Moment Ill Never Forget My life changed during the summer when I was ten years old Even though it has been eight years ago I will always remember my third year on the swim team I had always done well but could never manage to finish first Every swim meet I went to that year I came in second place Little did I know this would be my year Eldon was my best friend and best competitor He had a short stocky build and his blond hair turned snow-white in the summer His skin was dry and flaky from spending too much time in the chlorine water The swimming pool was his life He was an excellent swimmer and made sure everyone else knew it too After every win he wore his cocky grin and strutted around the pool area waiting for everyone to acknowledge his latest win As of that date he held every record in the league for the six and under and eight and under divisions When I think about it now Eldon might has been friends with me because I didnt mind being in his shadow I had always come in second to Eldon during our races Coming out from under Eldons shadow began with a mistake when our coach Leslie caught me swearing She was a strict little lady that demanded respect At ten I was already taller than she was No one on the team dared to walk on the bottom of the pool during their laps For my punishment she made me swim extra laps with the older kids The next four days I did my best to keep up with them so they wouldnt have to wait for me Eldon got a big kick out of this and would stand by the edge of the pool making fun of me At the time I never wondered why Leslie never said anything to Eldon about this Now
