The SwimWay Team Visits Rio For The 2016 Olympics
At SwimWay Swimming School we are passionate about swimming! We get as much joy watching your children improve in the pool with us each term as we do watching the best swimmers in the world compete.
It is an honour to watch these Olympic athletes at Rio 2016 break records, win medals and showcase their amazing swimming skills. It is definitely getting our team excited to get back in the pool with you all for the start our Autumn Term Swimming Lessons in September!
Gold for Adam Peaty with another world record clocking in at 57.13 seconds to break his personal best. He won with the largest margin of victory on record in the event at the Olympics, and is the first member of Team GB to win Gold in swimming since Adrian Moorhouse in 1988.
“When I am struggling it is important to have somebody there to tell me what is happening to my body”
– Adam Peaty talking about the importance of his coaches after his first world record success in 2015.
One of the most important benefits of the SwimWay teaching methodology for our private swimming lessons are that our coaches are always in the water, being able to guide and instruct the swimmer. Each lesson can be designed around the individual needs, strengths and weaknesses of the child. Rather than a block syllabus in larger classes.
Silver for Jazz Carlin for an utterly brilliant swim, and an inspirational build up to achieve a personal best in the 400m freestyle!
Silver for Siobhan-Marie O’Connor, in the 200m Individual Medley. She overcame a persistent illness to swim an amazing and nail-biting race. She set a new British record of 2.06.88, and became the first British woman to win an Olympic medal in the 200m medley.
Silver for the Men’s freestyle relay team as well!
Of course Michael Phelps showed his consistently phenomenal technique in the pool and becoming a true Olympic legend.
