Olympians Hope To Inspire Young Swimmers In Galt


With each stroke, Joseph Lopez hopes to learn.

“It’s really special because they’re going to help you,” Lopez said. “They’re the best in the world.”

Over the weekend, Olympic gold medalists Alyssa Anderson and Peter Vanderkaay gave the Galt Gators pointers.

“It’s a lot of fun for us to see the impact we can make,” Vanderakaay said. “Just being around kids for a few hours and saying something that might stick with them for a long time is really cool.”

Anderson started her swimming career in Granite Bay and wants to pay it forward to swimmers here in Northern California.

“These clinics are just a great way to give back,” Anderson said.
