Cynthia Aziz

The Three Year Swim Club
The book captures the stories of amazing young children and their unlikely couch who are inspired to achieve greatness oblivious to the challenges of the cold world off their shores. The author's meticulous research using oral histories and memorabilia from the swimmers and their families, and tools from sports writers makes for fun reading for history buffs and fans of personal best stories, alike.
