Laura Garcia and Manuel Gracia Shimanovich, Swimming Coaches

By Laura Garcia Shimanovich Y Manuel Gracia

The Gladiators swim team.

It is a beautiful experience to see the look of anticipation on our athletes, the discipline they show, the sacrifice of the parents to come from afar (as Santiago which is 3 hours away, paying 500 pesos in taxi fare every time because they don't have a car). We believe that we, each time they come, we learn more from them than they from us.
