May Swimmer of the Month (Morning) is Claire Christie
Claire has always loved the water and being in the pool. She has been sharing her smile and her positive attitude with Olympium Synchro for the past 6 years. Claire started in the novice program when she was in Grade 3. The year after, she joined the provincial program where she swam for two years. This is Claire’s third year in the HP program. She loved swimming on Coach Steph’s 13-15HP team this year, and is very proud of her success in figures at Canadian Espoir Championships in Winnipeg. Along with her own swimming, Claire has also been part of Olympium’s Coach in Training program for the past 2 years, where she shares her love of synchro with swimmers in the evening program. She looks forward to the possibility of coaching her own team next year. Coach Vanessa shares that through her strong leadership, Claire has been instrumental in the success of the novice 11 & over program. She is a positive role model to all the swimmers she works with.
Outside of the pool, Claire enjoys singing, travelling with her family, and spending time with her friends. She recently completed her Grade 4 voice exam at The Royal Conservatory of Music. She is looking forward to seeing the Grand Canyon with her family this summer and to spending three weeks at Camp Tawingo in Huntsville, where she earned her Bronze Cross last summer.
Coach Steph says:
Claire made significant improvements to her figures in the month of May and was able to maintain her corrections at every practice. Her performance at Espoir was excellent. She was consistent, applied her corrections, and achieved many of the focuses she had been working on during practice. Great job!
Her smile is infectious and can always brighten the day around the pool. Thank you for sharing your positive energy with us Claire, and congratulations on your achievements.
