The Water Whisperer, Gail Rickett and her super baby swimmers are on television this week due to Gail’s jawdropping results throughout her career with her pupils. Gail recently had a non swimmer called Sam Bates who after his first lesson swam 200 meters correct stroke, thats 8 lengths of most large pools. And on his second lesson, Sam swam 1/4 of a mile.

In addition to this Gail had a swimmer called Leah who started as a terrified child at the age of 7 years old, who was crying and screaming, within 18 months Gail had taught Leah breaststroke, front crawl, backstroke, butterfly and diving and Leah swam 5 miles in one go, yes one go!

There’s also been Rohan 3 years old who swam 1/4 of a mile after just two of Gails group courses. Gail says the list is endless on who she has taught to swim in a few hours and she has many 3 year old swimming a correct stroke.
Gail has been named by many as  “The Water Whisperer” and we at OTS are sure we are going to hear more in the future about Gails super baby swimmers.

Look out for Gail this week on Granada News North West its on between 6.00pm – 7.00pm!
