Olympic Gold medalist Claire Donahue and National Team Members Brad Craig and Katie Meili made a big splash at Pleasantville high school Sunday.

“We’re really excited just to be here and come to South Jersey,” said Claire Donahue, a 2012 London Olympic Gold Medalist in the 400-medley relay.

“For them to come out here is such an honor,” said clinic participant.

The trio spent the day teaching young swimmers how to enhance their competitive swimming skills.

“For us we get to teach them not just about technique and about drills, but we get to kind of talk to them about what it’s like to be a swimmer, you can kind of connect,” said Donahue.

“It’s not like everyday you get to meet Olympians and them like teach you these things,” said clinic participant.
