  1. i stare at the pool. i know i can do it. just jump, i keep telling myself. but how do u make a big splash? the splash has 2 be 6 feet high 2 qualify 4 the next round. i hold my breath, bend my knees so far that i’m nearly squatting. i push off with all the strength I’ve got left. my feet leave the diving board as i curve in an ark, my hands 1st, than my head, shoulders, all the way down 2 my feet. as i hit the surface, i hear the crowd hold their breath. i smoothly cut under the surface, all my muscles pumping. as i resurface, i don’t hear applause, or cheering. as the judges discuss my splash, i hear a voice in the crowd. ” u can do it!” my BFF Amy shouts. as the judges slowly flip over the scorecards, everyone holds their breath. there are some doubts creeping into my brain, but i shake them off as i looked at the judges, my heart racing. 10, 10, and 10! “yes!” i scream over the crowd, my voice echoing through the stadium. my whole family and Amy race down, with shining faces. “u did it!” shouts Amy racing over 2 hug me.as her arms wrap around me, i whisper in her ear, ” i’m sorry.” then she hugs me even tighter back and whispers” me too.” soon, my parents surround me, and i know this is where i belong.
