Our guest for this skater/parent enrichment session is Ryan Cochrane, a retired Canadian competitive swimmer who specialized in freestyle distance events. Cochrane is an Olympic silver and bronze medalist as well as a triple gold medalist from the Pan Pacific Swimming Championships. He is also a four-time Commonwealth Games champion in the 400-meter and 1,500-meter having won both medals in 2010 and 2014. He holds six world championship medals from the 800-meter and 1,500-meter, this also makes Cochrane Canada's all-time leading medalist for a swimmer at the World Aquatics Championships. Cochrane also won gold medals in the 400 and 1,500 m freestyle at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto, as well as a bronze in the 4 x 200 m freestyle at the 2015 Games. From the year 2008 - 2015, Cochrane was named the Canadian male swimmer of the year - winning the award 8 times in a row.

This is a motivational talk on his training and experiences of becoming a elite athlete.This is a wonderful opportunity for the skaters and parents of JDFSC to meet, listen and ask questions as to how and why figure skating and swim races are similar.

He has kindly made the time to do this for us in his very busy schedule. Please support this club event!
