Our Niece!

Hannah Gaetjen, yes that’s her, alright

Just won vice European Youth Championship in a sport called not-drowning. ๐Ÿ˜‰

#19, in the German swim cap is Hannah, in a duel against the Italians

The Hungarian, Vivien Nett, was leading the race for quite a while but obviously timed her race wrongly and spent all her strength too early and was collected like a refuse sack by both, Germgirls and Italibellas.

That’s Hannah alright. She inherited the red hair from her mother.

Hannah stayed cool and swam her style and her speed without showing any signs of hectic, just steady as she goes. 5 km isn’t a sprint and takes more than an hour, even for those fast girls. There is no occasion for intermittent sprints and other gameplays … just swim steady and fast and end up on the podium.

The podium: Julia Barth, Hannah Gaetjen, Anna Porcari

The location was a little lake in Paris/France. Looked like ideal swimming conditions to me. But then, after the race: Not even for the TV and press they were allowed to take their masks off. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ And they had to grab their medals from a little basket and hang them around their necks by themselves. Really now? These girls just swam 5 clicks as if it was nothing! Super duper healthy and fit model athletes! I don’t think any of them are infected. What we see here is pure virtue signaling. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Covid deniers won’t be any more clever after seeing the girls wearing their masks so boldly … and the girls? I feel sorry for them being treated that way. :/

The three graces happy with their medals

I still don’t get it: 5 klicks! Not rowing, not sailing, not paddling but swimming. The most uneconomical way to ever move humans across any length of water. And these stupid girls are doing it for fun! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I mean, I swam with the best when I was young; never as a sport tho, but as a beach bunny and sports sailor I had a life-guard qualification. But I would drown, you hear, just fuxn drown and be dead, after 1 km. But I usually die of boredom long before I reach the 1,000 meter mark. And our niece, the silly teenager, just swims 5 klicks … in a competition! For fun! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Phuk me. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Hannah’s race starts at roundabout 1:30h in.

Oh did I tell you Hannah is the second-fastest junior long distance swimmer in Europe? Are we proud of her? We just watched her full race, over an hour of nothing but bobbing swim caps and floundering arms … you wouldn’t believe how proud we are! ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and I know for a fact that our Hannah can also swim speedily in pools. And after that she won bronze with her team in the 4×1.25km relay. Happy happy joy joy.
