My name is Brian and I'm from La Paz Bolivia. I've been a competitive swimmer for the past nine years and also worked as an assistant couch for different teams. I want to share my knowledge to kids in order to build a strong connection with the water and with the sport itself, as it is a difficult and demanding activity. I learned a lot trough swimming and it helped me to be better physically and mentally showing me that if you love what your are doing becomes more than just a sport. I'm really looking forward to create and develop a new generation of swimmers able to compete at their very best and show responsibility and teamwork through our journey.
