    Default about me winning him back

    So this was how it would end . . .
    Levi would still swim
    his race and prove his point in the pool. He ’d do it, I knew
    he would. The only difference was – when he touched that
    fi nish line, I wouldn’t be there to share it. It wasn’t about
    me winning him back anymore. It was enough to be about

    him winning.

    Can you rewrite those two red sentences with a basic English for me, please?

    'win somebody back' means do things that will make that person want to renew the relationship.

    It was enough to be about him winning.

    She was happy and felt it was enough for her to be happy that he would win, that she didn't feel it necessary that they get together again.
