Proud Papa - Jaime update

I've been a bit remiss in updating Jaime's results at the inaugural National Rowing Championships in Welland, Ontario, so here we go.

Jaime followed up her excellent showing from Sunday, (when she placed ninth overall - first in the Under 23 lightweight - time trials) with a strong showing in her first singles heat, then earning her way into the final events with a second strong result in the afternoon.

Tuesday, Jaime wrapped up the regatta with a fifth place in the lightweight "B" final and a first place in the lightweight doubles final. You can find the final results here (in a .pdf document.)

Jaime ended up second among the Under 23 lightweights and 11th overall out of all the lightweights. Her strong showing puts her in a great position to claim a spot on the National Under 23 team that will go to the world championships in Scotland this summer.

Jaime arrived home today, tired, but happy with the way the past week has gone.

She's got one final regatta with UVIC this weekend in Seattle, then she'll begin training with the National Team here in Victoria. While the final composition of the team won't be known for a while yet, we've got our fingers crossed that she'll be in the final boat.

Congratulations, Jaime. You've made your Papa proud!
