Two of my kids had the privilege of being trained by Olympic swimmers Dana Vollmer and Jason Lezak last weekend at the Olympic trials pool in West Fargo, North Dakota (yes, the pool that was used for the Olympic trials in Omaha is now in West Fargo - the Hulbert Aquatic Center!). It was a Breakout Swim Clinic sponsored by Mutual of Omaha.
