Families in Ealing were given the chance to improve their swimming at a free coaching session hosted by double Olympian and GLL Sport Foundation Athlete Ekaterina Avramova at Gurnell Leisure Centre on 29th October 2017, to celebrate Gurnell Leisure Centre reaching the monumental 4000 swim school target.
Classes were open to children aged 7 through to adults. Ekaterina ran a series of 30 minute masterclasses, tailored to the groups’ ability. Activities included fun exercises, advice on technique, performance improving tips and hat signings. She also shared some of her personal experiences competing at the Olympics, World and European championships. On completing the masterclass participants were encouraged to have group photos which were shared on Ekaterina’s twitter.
The event was enjoyed by 30 lucky swimmers with over 60 on a waiting list. Ekaterina also expressed that she’d like to volunteer for similar events in the future and lead regular masterclass.
