Special Olympics Open Water Swimming Clinic

Special Olympics Open Water Swimming Clinic

Kester Edwards, a former board director of Special Olympics International, and Special Olympics Cayman Islands under the leadership of Maxime Everson organized the first international Special Olympics open water swimming clinic.

Over 25 coaches and open water swimming athletes from the Caribbean nations and North America participated in a 3-day workshop.

The athletes did a POW (Pool Open Water) session, had classroom instruction, watched videos of races around the world, and participated in the Butterfield 800m Sea Swim on Seven Mile Beach on Grand Cayman.

Kester Edwards is shown by Penny McDowall who is one of only 40 coaches worldwide to receive the Special Olympics’ Exemplary Coach Award.
