CLAYTON, Mo. – “It’s a lot of early mornings.”
“Just doing it day in, day out, you just gotta accept it.”
“Those are the kinds of sacrifices you have to be willing to make.”
That is how three members of Clayton Shaw Park Swimming describe what it takes to keep up with the sport they love.
“It’s taxing and if you’re faking a love of swimming it’s just a chore,” said Niko Thedos, member of the Clayton Shaw Park Swimming team. “It’s going to beat you. We have a really good bond together and that helps every day to stay motivated and keep going.”
They say it’s not just an individual sport. They’re also working to make the entire team reach its goals.
“I want to get better. But I also want the person to my left and to my right to get better,” said Anna Moehn, member of the Clayton Shaw Park Swimming team. “So we get better together.”
They each do different strokes, different distances and stay in their figurative and literal lane.
