#ILearnedtoSwim with Craig McNally

"I had always enjoyed swimming since finishing lessons and competing in school galas and knew that I had wanted to take it up competitively, but didn't do this until my friend joined Warrender and I followed him into the club shortly afterwards. I remember choking on water once and refusing to get back in the pool but needless to say I overcame it!"
