SCSC Guest Speaker: Tom Jager - This Thursday!
Former SCSC Swimmer Tom Jager, a 3-time Olympian and world recorder holder will be here on Thursday, May 10th at 4PM to talk to SCSC swimmers. ALLSCSC swimmers are welcome and encouraged to attend. Practice will be canceled for the White Bell and Yellow Bell swimmers so they can come to the International Swim Center for this exciting event. All other groups will have practice at their coach’s discretion. Tom competed in the 1984, 1988 & 1992 Olympics and was ranked in the top 2 in the world in the 50 free for a 10 year span, trading off world records with American Great Matt Biondi during this time.
