Our swimmer of the week award goes to Izzy! Izzy started out with K & K 4 months ago and has managed to overcome fears and obstacles in the water that take most children years to achieve.
Izzy took great interest of the water watching the 2016 Summer Olympics. She specifically had an interest in one athlete in particular, Penny Oleksiak. “I want to be just like her when I’m older, I’m aiming to make the Olympics one day” said Izzy.
As soon as Izzy jumped in the water for her first lesson, she had a strong affinity for the water. Within 4 months, Izzy has learned to swim front crawl, back crawl, breaststroke, flip turns and is in the process of learning to swim butterfly. Again, all within 4 months!
Some of other Izzy’s favourite hobbies include singing and dancing. It's also her birthday this week. Happy Birthday Izzy!
