Olympians Hayden and Hunks visit FSJ & Moose FM

It is ‘Swim with an Olympian’ weekend at the North Peace Leisure pool.

Fort St. John’s Inconnu Swim Club is hosting the event for the sixth time, and has brought in a couple of Canada’s top swimmers – Brent Hayden and Tanya Hunks.  Members of the Inconnu Swim Club, as well as other swim clubs in Northern B.C., will get a chance to meet the Olympians, and also get some training tips, with the two set to join local swimmers in the pool. 

There is also an open session from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, when any members of the public are welcome to come to the pool, to meet Hayden and Hunks. 

Hayden and Hunks, along with Inconnu coach Jan Wahlen, joined Moose FM’s Jon Zacks on Friday afternoon to talk about the weekend. Listen to the entire interview here.
