Dear Coaches, Swimmers, Team Owners, and Parents…
CAL Swim School would like to invite you to a once in a lifetime presentation of the journey of Daniel Coakley (Southeast Asia Swim Sprint King) to the Beijing Olympics. With great family support, pride in his heritage, perseverance and determination, Daniel with his Family achieve their dream of representing their country to the Beijing Olympics.
Daniel with his dad and coach, Jeff overcame numerous obstacles to achieve their dream. These include training in an outdated swimming pool, no training partner, lack of high tech equipment/s, and others. We hope that with this presentation we can be convinced (Filipino Swimmers) that we can also achieve the Olympic Dream even with the lack of technological and system support available in the first world countries, and everything we need to succeed is already available to us.
