Local Athletes Hit the Water with an Olympic Swimmer

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Olympic Swimmer Josh Davis stopped by Tuloso-Midway High School to work with local kids on their skills in the water and to give them some advise about reaching their goals. 

It's called the Mutual of Omaha Breakout Swim Clinic, and Corpus Christi was one of over 70 cities to take part in this unique learning opportunity to help inspire and motivate a new generation of swim stars.  Athletes from 8 years old to 18 hit the water with Davis and even got to race against him!

In 1996, Josh Davis made history as the only man in any sport from any nation to win three gold medals at the Atlanta Olympic Games. Davis made his second Olympic appearance in The 2000 Games in Sydney, where he was elected captain of the USA Men's Swim Team and took home two silver medals. He went on to break the American record three times in the 200-meter freestyle. After two Olympics and five medals, Josh has established himself as ambassador for the sport and is pioneering the road for the next generation of professional swimmers.
