Hazlegrove senior swimmers had a VIP guest when British Olympic freestyle swimmer Cameron Kurle joined them for their squad training last week. Cameron told the children about his experiences and his personal route to the Olympics. It was inspiring to hear how much difference sheer hard work and determination can make when you are hoping to realise your dreams. Cameron explained that when he was prep school age himself, he was not considered a particularly good swimmer but he was determined to be successful and put in 28 hours a week in the pool in order to try and achieve his goal. The hard work certainly paid off for Cameron with his selection for the 2016 Olympics whilst still in his final year at school. He now he has his sights set on Tokyo in 2020. Cameron joined the children in the pool for their training session giving them some handy tips on technique. The children were delighted to meet Cameron we hope he will be an inspiration to them all!
