YOUNG LOCAL swimmers benefited on the weekend from impromptu sessions with the coaches and athletes currently making their training base at the National Aquatic Centre in Couva.
Approximately ten young athletes from various clubs were introduced to the discipline of diving at a Saturday clinic with Duke University Diving Head Coach Nunzio Esposto and his athletes. The swimmers learned some basic warm-up and stretching exercises before plunging into the pool alongside the collegiate divers.
Speaking at the event, Esposto said he was happy to facilitate the session. “I was very impressed by the attitude of the youngsters, who had never been exposed to diving before.
