Mark Foster makes a splash

Mark FosterFormer Olympian and three time World Record holder over 50m, Mark Foster performed the official opening of the refurbished Lockside earlier this week. Mark, who is one of Britain’s most successful ever swimmers, was also on hand to launch Swimming Nature at The Lensbury.

All of the tester sessions for Swimming Nature, which is new to The Lensbury, were completely booked. Mark, who was the flag bearer for Team GB at the Beijing Olympics, took to the water, alongside Swimming Nature elite coach Zoe, to give the assembled children some helpful tips and advice.

Mark was hugely impressed by the refurbishment. “I’m really thrilled to be here to celebrate the re opening of this fantastic facility. Looking around, it really sets the standard. I am really excited to be offering Swimming Nature at The Lensbury.”

Mark rounded up the afternoon by performing a demonstration of the technique that saw him take six world titles, as he dived in and sprinted up and down the pool to the delight of all those present.
