This week islander Andrea Hunt joins us on Who’s on Bainbridge to discuss her lifelong connection to swimming and the important part it plays in her every day life.

In this podcast Andy tells BCB host Bob Ross about the very active Bainbridge Island Masters Swimming program (called BAM), about its award-winning coach, April Cheadle, and why swimming  is so important to many islanders.  

Listen here to learn how a master swimmer trains, both in and out of the water, and about the lifetime benefits of swimming — whether or not you choose to compete.
