Feb 15, 2023 – Swiss Army Team

Wednesday morning was off providing some extra sleep and rest spending time out in the sun of Tenerife. We were back at the pool in the afternoon with an aerobic and sprint focused workout including plenty of kicking for the sprint specialist of the group and a breaststroke based session for our distance (medley) athlete.

Our mid-distance freestyle specialist, Antonio Djakovic, joined back forces with his Coach Pablo Kutscher and his regular SCUW squad for most of the sessions while in Tenerife.
