CBAC swimmers learn from Olympian
Local swimmers had the opportunity to meet and learn from an Olympian.
The Canadian Badlands Aquatic Club hosted a swim clinic on Tuesday, October 11 at Genesis Place in Airdrie. At the clinic, three time Canadian Olympian Ryan Cochrane was at the event.
Cochrane competed in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing where he won bronze in the 1,500-freestyle. He was back in the pool at the 2012 Olympics in London and won silver in the same event. While he did not medal at the 2016 Rio Games, he has amassed medals in the Pan Pacific Swimming Championships, the Commonwealth Games and the World Championship.
Members of CBAC were able to get a few pointers from Cochrane, and he also spoke on his experiences. In turn the club presented him with a signed flutter board.
