With established locations already operating in California, New York and Michael Phelps’ home state of Maryland, the Michael Phelps Swim School has announced the opening of its first international venture. The swim school has just launched an excellence program in Bengaluru, India this week.Hilary Phelps, eldest sister of Phelps and the creative director of the Michael Phelps Swim School, said that the program is geared for children and swimmers of all skill levels, using training methods that helped her 18-time Olympic gold medalist sibling learn to swim. Said Hilary of the new investment in India, “This country has so much potential to excel in every sport in existence and swimming is no different. The reason we chose Bengaluru as the venue for our swim clinics is because of its rich history of nurturing young swimming talent and a vibrant swimming culture.” She continued, “We want to give Indians the opportunity to learn to swim and later become a competitive force in the sport of swimming. We (Michael Phelps Swim School) are very excited to work together to bring our programme to India, especially Bangalore.
