We were lucky enough to be invited to work with swimmers and teachers twice this week at Splish Splash swim school in Ashby. We looked at Freestyle with one group, and starts & tumble turns with the other. All swimmers pushed their boundaries to have a go at some new and sometimes difficult skills, but did it with a smile on their face. We also had a short classroom session where swimmers, teachers and parents were told all about our journeys towards the Olympic Games, with the opportunity to ask any questions they had. They heard about the ups and downs of our careers, and how the important thing is to work hard and believe in yourself!
Everyone got the chance to see Commonwealth, European, and World medals.
Our cheeks also got a good workout with plenty of photographs and selfies afterwards! Thank you for having us at Splish Splash, we had a blast!
