still catching up:
last April, our budding swimmer, mercyGirl, attended the Born to Swim Clinic
at the PG Sports and Learning Complex
with world-champion swimmer Sabir Muhammad.
they listened to a motivational talk by Muhammad,
were able to ask him questions,
got a copy of his book, Born to Swim,
then they hit the water to work on some techniques.
finally, they got to try out their stroke against him in a short freestyle race.
mercyGirl is in the third lane from the right with the lime green cap.
you’ll notice with a chuckle that Muhammad doesn’t hit the water until the kids are half way down the lane!
