Strawberry Crest junior Angelina Gallastegui placed in top 20 in two events at the Class 2A state meet last week in Orlando. Gallastegui made the state meet for the 500 free and 200 free for the second consecutive year and improved her times in both events this time, including a 10th-place finish in the 500 free (5:05.10). She also placed 20th in the 200 free.
How long have you been swimming?
Since I was 7, so 10 years.
How long have you been swimming freestyle events?
I started out as a breast-stroker and then went more to short-distance freestyle. Then one day, my coach put me in a mile at a meet, and I did pretty well and have been doing long distance ever since.
What would be some goals for you next year as a senior?
I would like to finish top eight at state in both the 500 and 200, because I really want a medal. It’s what’s driving me.
Do you want to swim in college?
It’s pretty much been a dream of mine since I started. With high school swimming, I really like being with everyone and the team aspect, and I hear that in college, that is just amplified because it is year-round.
What’s your training schedule like?
(In) club swimming, we do year-round for two hours after school every day but Sunday. Now that the high school season is over, it will be that until next year.
Any hobbies outside of swimming?
I like to ride horses and play volleyball.
Have you traveled any place exciting?
I’ve been to Spain, because my dad’s side of the family lives there.
Do you still train when you’re there?
I do swim up there, because I don’t want to stop just because I’m on vacation, but it’s kind of weird, because they swim differently.
How do they swim differently?
European style is the complete opposite direction. It’s funny to see the way they train and their different techniques, but I definitely learn and watch them and try to apply it to my swimming..” >http://sademocar.ru/vzyat-kreditnuyu-kartu-v-sberbanke.php
