Former MAKO Coach & Olympian Anthony Ervin and Coach Elliot participate in the 2012 Metropolitan Diversity Clinic
100 aspiring swimmers attended the 3rd annual Metro Diversity Clinic this past Sunday at the Ossining Aquatics Center in Ossining, Westchester County. 2000 Olympic gold medalist in 50 free, Anthony Ervin, was one of the clinicians. He told the swimmers about becoming an Olympic Champion: "It wasn't a quick process. I didn't go from you," he said, pointing to the swimmers, "to an Olympic medalist." Lots of knowledge shared and lots of high fives!
