Chyna Fish Assistant Coach


Chlorine runs through  Chyna ’s veins! She swam competitively for 13 years on various teams in the PNW. Starting as a swim instructor at 16, she quickly developed a love and enjoyment for working with kids.  From 2018-2020, she coached on the Multnomah Athletic Club team, and later became the manager of a swim school. She’s excited for a fresh start in Washington, and with a new team! She also enjoys downtime with her husband and two kitties, loves watching movies and drinking tea.
