The Wheeler YMCA Tigersharks were able to send a small group of swimmers to the YMCA Yankee Cluster Swim League’s Clinic which was held this past Sunday at the Meriden YMCA. At the clinic, swimmers were able to meet Olympic Gold Medalist Conor Dwyer as well as Olympian Kate Ziegler! While there, the swimmers heard stories about how Conor and Kate got involved in the sport, what they are currently doing, and about a day in the life of an Olympic athlete. Conor and Kate took the kids into the pool and broke down all four strokes for the swimmers. Each swimmer also had a chance to race one of them in a 25 yard swim off the block! This was a unique opportunity for our swimmers, and one they won’t soon forget.
