Lake Forest Swim Club

Two Tough Ducks

It was a daily honor to coach these guys. Olympians Doug Lennox (2008, Puerto Rico) and Conor Dwyer (2008, 2012, USA). They had some tough training days in the pool for sure, but never two in a row.


Conor Recounts His Early Years At LFSC

Check out this article about Conor's recent visit in this week's Lake Forester. Here's a sampling . . .

Q-- How did a club like Lake Forest Swim Club help you get to where you are today?

A-- “They showed me how training hard can help me accomplish anything. This is where I learned to train hard and push myself day in and day out.”


Fun Day In Practice!

We had a great training session on Friday when all of our college swimmers returned to the pond. Our Olympic Gold Medal teammate, Conor Dwyer, not only ripped through about 9000 meters but stayed to teach the Mighty Ducks, Yellow and Green Squad swimmers. Conor's insights into the Olympics, training and what steps he took along the way were invaluable. CD will be around for a few days then off to the US Nationals in Austin.

Every four years the world celebrates the greatness of athletic achievement at the Olympic Games. For 16 days the world stops as even the most casual sports fans from around the world become enthralled watching the Olympic Dreams play out in the 30-some sports of the Games.

Watching this year was especially exciting for members of the Lake Forest Swim Club Ducks as one current member, Conor Dwyer, lined up for two events in London. What could be more exciting?
