Time is running out – don’t delay! We want to hear what swimming means to our youngest swimmers and competitive teens alike! A week remains to enter the I Swim Because Facebook Contest and help us win a visit to SwimLabs Utah by 5-time Olympic Gold Medalist Missy Franklin.As a partner and ambassador to the SwimLabs team, Franklin has been instrumental in initiating new ways to communicate and teach skill and technique to swimmers of all ages.Missy Franklin began her swimming career with swim lessons at just six months old, in part due her mother’s own fear of water. After a successful club and high school career, Franklin went on to compete in the 2012 London Summer Olympics, where she won five medals (four gold and one bronze). In the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, Missy Franklin rounded out her medal count with an additional gold medal in the 4 x 200 freestyle relay. She continues to hold the world record in both the 200-meter backstroke and 4 x 100-meter medley relay.To enter the I Swim BecauseContest, simply post a picture or video to our SwimLabs Utah Facebook Page by May 31, telling us the reason why you are passionate about swimming. The SwimLabs Swim School location with the most Facebook likes and comments will win the visit.Should SwimLabs Utah be the lucky swim school that wins a visit by Missy, four competitive kids or teens with the most likes and comments on their post will also win a one-on-one lesson with Missy!
