about was the rabbit!” exclaimed Lydia, who finished the event with a time of 5:44.

“In any given day these girls will swim up to 8 km. Their dedication to improving and their competitive spirit is impressive and admirable,” McNeil said. “Swimming can be grueling and intense and they meet those challenges with a willingness to do the work and a fantastic attitude. The maturity they show every day far surpasses what anyone would expect from an 11 or 13-year-old.” These athletes train for over 11 hours each week in the pool. During the September-June swim season, Lydia and Rori attend between 10-12 competitions.

“Swimming may not always seem worth it, but it is,” shared Rori. “The getting up at 5 a.m. to swim before and after school, and going to the gym after that is worth it.  When you get a good time and feel accomplished, or you’re having a bad day or a bad race and need someone to talk to—your swim team will always be there for you. They are your second family.”

Graeson Van Putten

Hometown: Martintown School: Iona Academy Grade: Senior Kindergarten Age: 5 Graeson Van Putten has lived near Martintown for his whole life, but his sports interests draw him to Toronto. An avid Maple Leafs’ fan, he is often teased by school staff who cheer for the Senators, but he continues to follow the family tradition. Graeson can also clap out any of the Blue Jays’ motivational songs, and really enjoys his yearly visit to Rogers Centre and running the bases after the game. He is often spotted on the sidelines of local soccer venues, while his older brothers take to the field. Graeson’s personal involvement with sports comes from his Saturday mornings spent at dance. In collaboration with the OCTC-Cornwall site, Powell School of Dance offers a program entitled Ballerina Dreams for children with special needs. This weekly dance training, established through the efforts of Dr. Christine Seuss, follows classical ballet routines. Graeson has a volunteer dancer who helps to challenge his gross motor skills, develops his interest in music, and allows him to shine socially. Every Saturday he looks forward to being active and putting his whole heart into his dance team.
