CROWN POINT | On March 23, 75 of the Crown Point Swim Club swimmers got to experience a once in a lifetime clinic with 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist Brendan Hansen.

Hansen spent three hours in the water with the swimmers working on technique and taking about ideas of how to improve as well as spent an hour in the classroom talking about his Olympic experiences and what drove him to be as great a swimmer as he is.

For a special treat, Hansen came to the club banquet later that evening to sign autographs and take pictures with the whole club as well as talk to the families and hand out the awards to the swimmers.

“Brendan Hansen is one of the most amazing clinicians I think that I have ever listened to and been giving the privilege of working with,” head coach John Krick said. “If any teams have the opportunity to bring Brendan in to work with their swimmers I would highly recommend it. ...I’m so glad our swimmers got to experience the whole day.”
