Ira's Stage 3 swimming test

A year and a half in his swimming lessons, Ira finally took the first test - Stage 3. During the time that Kelvin was taking the lessons a few years ago, they didn't have this test. Kelvin went straight to Bronze level. That means one additional level for Ira.

He was a bit nervous but we said he could do it. He started to learn to swim at a very early age (around 4) as he was always tagging along during Kelvin's swimming lessons. He didn't know the proper strokes then, but now he is quite familiar with breast stroke and moving on to free style.

from doing his best - swimming faster or diving the deepest or floating the longest

Well done, Ira! You've passed the Stage 3 test. Now it's time to prepare for Bronze level in a few weeks time.
