The Fitter and Faster Swim Clinic was held at the Lonoke Community Center on Sept. 7 and 8.

Olympic swimmer Nick Thoman conducted the clinic. Thoman won a silver in the 100-meter backstroke and was a member of the gold medal medley relay team in the 2012 Olympics in London.

Swimmers were instructed in the proper technique in the swim strokes. During the two-day clinic 75 swimmers from across the state participated. One swimmer along with two friends were selected to participate in a private 30-minute clinic with Thoman. Tanner Canamore from Lonoke was selected and invited Makenzie and Tristan Bennett to participate with him.
