SOFLO’s Tristan Celestin lived up to his All-Star status on the opening day of the Florida Gold Coast-Florida Swimming All-Star Meet at Indian River State College in Fort Pierce.

On Saturday, Celestin, 12, was the only SOFLO male to win an individual event. He was also a member of a winning relay for the Florida Gold Coast All-Star team.

Celestin topped an impressive field of All-Stars to win the 11-12 100-yard breaststroke in 1:07.29.

Celestin, a sixth grader at West Glades Middle School and Florida Gold Coast record holder, also swam the second leg of the winning 200-yard medley relay that won in 1:50.66. He was joined by SOFLO teammate Gustavo Valery, swimming lead-off leg and Julien Pinon and Kearn Kurbanali.

Celestin was also fourth in the 50-yard freestyle in 25.23.

The two-day meet, that concludes with one final session on Sunday, is being webcast on Florida Swim Network. There are also videos of past races earlier in the meet.
