Members of the Elk Valley Dolphins Swim Club (EVDSC) enjoyed an amazing opportunity recently in Cranbrook, swimming and receiving instruction from Olympians Scott Dickens and Brent Hayden. Dickens and Hayden brought their Olympic medals with them for the young swimmers to see, and overall the day was (according to one swimmer), "one of the most exciting days of their lives".
