We welcomed Olympic Gold medalist Sarah Sjöström to National Pool on Friday April 20th.  Sara Sjöström gave a clinic to a large group of local Swimmers including from Sirens.

Sara Sjöström is a Swedish competitve swimmer specialized in the sprint freestyle and butterfly events. She is the current world record holder in the 50 meter freestyle (long course), the 100 meter freestyle (long course), the 200 meter freestyle (short course), the 50 meter butterfly (long course), and the 100 meter butterfly (long course and short course). She is the first Swedish woman to win an Olympic gold medal in swimming.

On August 7th 2016, Sjöström won the gold medal in the 100 meter butterfly at the Rio Olympics, setting a World record with a time of 55.48. When Sjöström went on to win silver and bronze medals in the 200 m and 100 m freestyle respectively, she became the second woman in history and the fifth swimmer overall, following Mark Spitz (1972), Kornelia Ender (1975, 1976), Matt Biondi (1986, 1988) and Michael Klim (1998), to win medals in both the 100 m and 200 m freestyle and the 100 m butterfly at a single Olympic Games, or World Championships.
