He did a great job of lining up and getting into the water in the pool. I am pretty sure that he didn't really know though, when he should start swimming. He and the little boy he was sharing a lane with just hung out for a minute or so. It was also loud in there, I'm sure, so he looked like he was a little distracted then as well. But he ran out of the pool area, got some help getting dressed (tried to take off his wet swim suit as well!!) and was off on his bike. At the next transition he found the water stop and stood drinking and drinking before ran.
Afterwards I asked him what the best part of it was- Swimming!!
