25 meter breaststroke (James is the second swimmer in from the left)
25 meter butterfly (James is the middle swimmer)
This event was probably my favorite because it was the last one he swam and the difference in his comfort level the start of the meet and the end was huge. He went up to the block to dive for butterfly and actually started doing pushups and dancing around. He said he just had a lot of excitement to get out. :) Also...at this point we had been there for hours and Jonny and Lucy were spent...you can hear Lucy crying in the background. To their credit, they spend hours on pool decks and are pretty darn patient about it.
