One from the open water and one from the pool. Swimming faster and swimming safely are what Olympian Peter Prijdekker and English Channel specialist Tim Denyer jointly focus on with their swimmers at Red Top Swim throughout pools in London.

The duality of the pair is unusual:
1 is on the pool deck. 1 is in the water.
1 is a pool swimmer. 1 is an English Channel swimmer.
1 is an Olympian. 1 is a protagonist of an award-winning film.
1 swam for an Olympic gold. 1 swam to walk without pain.

Prijdekker and Denyer are two swimmers who are now coaches leading a variety of athletes to realize their potential in the pool and open water.

An Inspirational Cause… A Successful Event

With the powerful cause of making waves to fight cancer, the inaugural Swim Across America Long Beach event was both inspirational and successful.

Before he came out of the water, Craig knew that a certain question had to be answered. It wasn’t a question about his middle name or anything like that. It was much more profound. It was a question posed by himself, a question that only he could answer for himself. When Craig was able to answer that question, Hank embraced him and congratulated him on finishing the 5K with dignity.
