Two of Head Coach Bob Radecke's swimmers, Catherine Boles and Laura Fornshell (both 15) were recently chosen by Pacific Swimming to attend a Long Distance Training Camp at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado in January. Catherine and Laura were chosen based on their high rankings in Pacific Swimming in Distance Events last season. Catherine was ranked #1 and Laura was ranked #3 in Pacific Swimming in both 400m and 800m Freestyle in the 13-14 Girls Age Group. Additionally, Laura was ranked #7 in the 1500m Freestyle, and Catherine was ranked #8 in the 400m IM.
In addition to swimming two-hour long workouts twice a day while at the camp, the girls also had the opportunity to train in the weight room, attend lectures on nutrition, and watch underwater video of themselves swimming, in order to help improve on their stroke techniques.
Thank you for representing AIA at the Olympic Training Center, Catherine and Laura!
