Blood, Sweat, and Lots of Tears... and Blood, Too.
"The butterfly is the worst stroke there is. It`s pure torture. You need good upper body strength and leg muscles!" Pg.40
" Everything burns. My muscles, my lungs, my eyes. I try to hang on. I do, But I don't know if that's physically possible." Pg.341

The day of the championship came, and Matt came in with no self-confidence
Because one of his friend has cut a hole in his competitor's speedo, Matt placed first with the worst time possible for a person to come in first
So with a little luck and a lot of pain and hard work, you may not find yourself the best, but you still can be your best
If you truly want something, you can't just wish for it. You have to get off of your lazy butt and...
His old time used to be 18 minutes.
