The hunt for Olympic swimming talent
Multiple Olympic champion Yana Klochkova and silver medallist Denis Silantiev held a Lviv swimming master-class in February as part of their nationwide search to promote aquatic sports and uncover the next generation of underwater Olympic champs. The medal-winning pair were joined at Lviv’s impressive Plyazh Aqua Park (which boasts one of Ukraine’s finest 50m Olympic size pools) by kids from four Lviv schools. Klochkova, who is currently pregnant with her first child, demonstrated various winning techniques for Lviv’s best young swimmers and awarded a number of prizes during her promotional trip. Plyazh Aqua Park offers a variety of options for kids looking to improve their swimming. Please see Lviv Listings for contact details.
