Double Olympic gold medallist teaches kids to swim

Double Olympic gold swimming medallist and Speedo Learn To Swim ambassador, Rebecca Adlington, will be joining the Speedo Sea Squad Mascots for a special mums and toddlers Learn To Swim event.

The event will be hosted at the Speedo Roadshow outside the City Hall Barkers Pool, Sheffield on Wednesday 19th October from 12.45pm-2.00pm.

At the interactive, free swim-themed event, mums and their kids
will be able to meet Rebecca, as well as play fun games and enjoy activities
with the Sea Squad mascots, including face painting, balloon modelling and

In a relaxed environment, mums can also discover more about Speedo’s swimfit and health and wellbeing ranges.

As part of the event, everyone who visits the Speedo Roadshow will receive a
free swim voucher for Ponds Ponds Forge International Sports Centre.

The first 20 mums and their children to arrive at the Speedo Roadshow will also be given a Speedo Learn to Swim Towel worth £16.

The main aim of the Learn To Swim event is to encourage more children to
learn to swim at an early age.

Speedo‘s Learn To Swim range of swimwear, training aids and accessories is divided into three simple, progressive stages, which seek to help build confidence and get children enjoying the water in no time.

Adlington, a strong supporter of Speedo’s Learn To Swim initiative, said: “Learning how to swim enables kids to feel confident in the water and opens the door to a range of other water sports”.

During her time at the Speedo Roadshow, Rebecca will be available to have her photo taken with fans and sign autographs.
