Well my coach has always told me to swim as fast as I can. So why wasn't it told to her at every meet? I can't imagine not being told that.

I always told everyone I knew and coached to swim as fast as they can. Competition and all. Swimming isn't a sport you can't go easy in. The fact she never pushed herself just points to ignorance.

20, It is actually possible if she had a bad coach/trainer. During my school years, not even ONE physical education teacher told me how run properly (breath control, pace control, etc), how to improve running distance, etc. So, blame the trainer.

She was just sandbagging in order to lull the competition into a false sense of superiority...or it literally just dawned on her that she had to try.

A toddler doing a swim meet? Really? 1) my toddler just learned how to swim, and all the moms are super impressed because most toddlers are scared of water, 2) even my toddler knows how competition works.

The coach likely uses the "don't worry about them, you're only competing against yourself" political correct line so that kids feelings don't get hurt when they lose.
