Santa Barbara Christian Olympic Swimmer Thanks 15 Years of Coaches

Local Christian, Mark Warkentin, represented the USA in the Olympic 10K Men's Swimming event. He has journaled his experience for us on his blog.

"This is a fine blog by an Olympian not many folks have heard of --yet. In a very classy move, Warkentin posts the names of his coaches going back 15 years. There's such a line of coaches behind every Olympian, stretching down to the littlest of leagues and most obscure of competitions. Hats off to all of them, as well as those who never coached a future Olympian but who treated all of their athletes as though they might be, for their millions of hours of unselfish effort to raise up young people of courage and character." - Hugh Hewitt
