Dolly's Charity Shop has sponsored this event for the members of the Singleton Swimming Club.

Super-fast Freestylers James Magnussen and Kurt Herzog have joined forces to share their knowledge and skills with NSW clubs and swimmers in a unique clinic format.

James and Kurt will teach swimmers how to swim faster freestyle through the introduction of high level skills and drills learnt at the elite level. Swimmers will also learn how to maximise speed and power on their dives, turns and underwater.

Swimmers will be given live demonstrations of each skill, drill, dive, turn and fast freestyle by both James and Kurt. This access to watching, and then emulating, world class athletes is an unprecedented offering.

Magnussen is an Australian swimmer and Olympic medallist. He was the 2011 and 2013 100-metre freestyle world champion, and holds the fifth fastest swim in history in the 100-metre freestyle.

Herzog debuted on the Australian team pretty late at the age of 23 years and claimed bronze at the 2015 world championships in Russia and missed out on the Australian team for the 2016 Rio Olympics by 0.2 seconds.

It was only through hard work that he then made the Dolphins team up until double shoulder surgery ruled him out of action shortly after he missed the team for Rio.

Herzog is still monitoring the progress in his shoulder, he hasn't given up aiming to be selected in the 200 metre freestyle for Tokyo 2020.
