Penny Heyns inspires swimmers02 December 2020
Curro Hermanus Aquatics Club (CUHE) hosted the famous Penny Heyns swimming clinic at its indoor heated pool over the weekend. A total of 40 swimmers from CUHE and other parts of the Overberg and Western Cape attended this intensive two-day clinic, which was presented by the double-gold and bronze Olympic legend herself.
The clinic covered all four strokes through video sessions, water workouts, starts and turns, as well as motivational talks on mental toughness and the importance of following your dreams. The swimmers also had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have their photos taken with Penny, together with her Olympic medals.
The clinic was a huge success that was enjoyed by all the swimmers and coaches who attended. All agreed that they learnt a lot from Penny and were inspired to be better swimmers, coaches and people.
CUHE would like to thank Penny and her business partner for the privilege of hosting the clinic and expressed the hope that another clinic would be arranged in the near future.
