High school swimming champion became a role model for what he did out of the pool


When it comes to boys’ high school swimming in Colorado, there is no one faster in the 100-yard backstroke than Jack Thorne.

He just racked up his third consecutive state championship for Thompson Valley High School in Loveland. He did it by breaking his own state record in the process.

But what makes his story even more special isn’t for what he did competing in the pool last weekend.

It’s what he did last summer, and the role model he has become as a result.
