Hi and welcome back.
I was proud to donate my time last Sunday to my son’s recreation league swim team, the West Haven Wizards (When the high school season is out, he swims here to stay in shape).
The coaching team at the Wizards brought in the Mutual of Omaha Breakout Swim Clinic for the kids. This is one of those great moments in sports when the athletes give back something to the kids. The swim clinic consists of two Olympians who give the kids a pep talk, do a Q+A, and then get them in the water to teach them skills.
Brendan Hansen, who won Gold and Bronze in England this year, and Christine Magnuson, who won Bronze in China were on hand to not only teach the kids but let them know what it takes and means to be an Olympian.
And, as a bonus, they brought their medals with them:
They got together with the kids for a photo op, taken by me, and to have their shirts signed:
