Olympian hosts swim clinic in Moruya

James Magnusson was at the Moruya Pool this morning and the kids were lapping up the Olympian’s know-how and enthusiasm.

“This has been one of the biggest clinics yet,” said James, who reckons he had about 70 kids in the pool at one stage.

The twice 100-metre-freestyle world champion mentioned he was also keeping his eye peeled for future swimming champions.

“It’s a passion of mine, visiting regional areas: I’m always on the look-out for talented swimmers.”

James was joined at the ‘Swim Freestyle Faster’ clinic by two fellow Olympians, open-water swimmer Jarrod Poort and backstroker Josh Beaver. The three waived their usual clinic fees for the free community event.

“I think, given the current circumstances and what’s happened here with the fires, that’s the right thing to do,” said James, who hosted a similar event at Cobargo yesterday.

The excellent Moruya Swimming Club organised the clinic 🙌with support from Council and pool managers Eurobodalla Aquatics.
