A Champ Training Our Champs
Our swimming at St Chris started with a bang this year when Karlyn Pipes gave a motivational talk during a Junior School assembly and held practical swim sessions for all our school swim squads.
Karlyn Pipes was inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame in June 2015 joining all-time swimming greats such as Mark Spitz, Janet Evans and Johnny Weissmuller in this prestigious recognition. She was 2012 World Master Swimmer of the Year and was recently voted one of the TOP TEN MASTERS SWIMMERS of ALL-TIME by Swimming World Magazine. She has also been named World Masters Swimmer of the Year in 2012, 2009, 2008, 2007 and 2004 and to date has set over 200+ FINA Masters World records of which 47 are still current. In addition, Karlyn has competed in open water races since the age of 8 and holds numerous course records in California and the all over the Island of Hawaii.
Well done to all those who took part, we hope that you are putting her techniques into practice!
