Olympic swimmer puts on workshop with Silver Seals

Olympic swimmer Martha McCabe worked with the members of the Weyburn Silver Seals Swimming Club on Friday evening at the Weyburn Leisure Centre's outdoor pool. She had the swimmers do various swimming styles and worked on their techniques, using her experience and knowledge as an Olympic athlete. She swam for Canada in the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, and now heads up an organization, Head to Head, and helps to train up athletes in the pool.
