Aimee Willmott IM masterclass
23 March 2018
ALL club members were invited tonight to either meet or swim in the Aimee Willmott IM turn Masterclass. What a great turn out for the club, with nearly 100 swimmers in the water practising their backstroke-breastroke turns!
Double Olympian, Olympic finalist and Commonwealth medallist Aimee visited Kensington Leisure Centre on her way to this year's Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast. Flying to Australia tomorrow, Aimee projected her enthusiasm across the group, motivating the club's swimmers to spend an hour rehearsing the perfect backstroke-breastroke turn. Working individually with swimmers and across the group, it was fantastic to see a role model like Aimee inspiring so many of our club swimmers. Every swimmer listened and engaged fully in the session, hopefully resulting in some highly skilled turns for the future - bring on the racing!
A huge thank you to Aimee and the coaches. We wish Aimee all the best in the Gold Coast where she will be competing in the 200/400 IM and 200 butterfly.
