Incredible Opportunity for KW Athletes
KW Synchro had an INCREDIBLE weekend as we took a bus-full of athletes, coaches and parents to Montreal for the weekend. KW attended the Olympic Send-Off Show and got an exclusive preview of the routines competing at the London Olympics in August, which were AMAZING!
After the show, the KW athletes donned their bathing suits and hopped into the pool for a private session with the National B Team, and then an autograph session with both the B team and the Olympic Team!
Our swimmers got an opportunity to see some pretty cool skills from the National Team members, and they also got to show off some of their own moves, impressing the National Team members and coaches!
Check out our Facebook page to see some of the pictures from the weekend!
