Our trip to Quebec

Hey Everyone!

So as most of you know already, last weekend Gabe and I made a courageous decision to drive to Quebec City for the Canadian Open Qualifier!

IMG_1691 2For those of you who follow my Instagram @claudiaholzner or my teams Instagram @syncanada2020 you would already know what we went through during that trip…. A quick recap: Went for a great lunch, popped a tire driving 100km/hr, changed the tire, got to the hotel and received the key to someone else’s room…awkward…. got a new room and met some synchro girls who had been running around trying to figure out where we were staying. That’s probably the best way to describe it all!

We were so excited to arrive at the pool the next morning to perform our Tech Duet for the first time in public and we are pretty happy about our swim! We have a ways to go and lots of little things to work on, but we are confident that our training plan is working and that we are on the right track as we get ready for Japan in just about a month!

I know that both Gabe and I truly felt a huge wave of support throughout the Synchro Community as we made our Canadian debut and we would like to thank everyone who took the time to give us positive comments and tips for our duet as well as just to chat and meet the next generation of excellent swimmers! Thank you for making us feel welcome and we can hardly wait to perform in front of you again at the Canadian Open in May!

Free Team and Free Duet Today

Hey all!!

Yesterday we had a great day. We started the competition off with a bang! A good swim of our brand new Highlight Routine, debuting a fun swim for the audience to enjoy.

The stakes were pretty high in the Technical Routine. We had a little blimp in the routine, something we did not expect. We know that we did not have the swim we want, but we are totally ready to show the world that we can and will achieve our goal.

I would like to let all of you know that we really appreciate your support these last couple days. It’s been a journey and we have learned a lot.

Tonight is a new chance, a new day to show you all what we are capable of!! The Team is on the same page and we are ready to swim our heart out! Free Routine is going to be a show for sure!! Tonight we are going to perform, and make you all proud! We are ready!
