Fort Worth, Texas (June 21, 2024) – Get ready for a splash of international competition and cultural exchange! A delegation of talented young swimmers from Reggio Emilia, Italy, is set to visit Fort Worth this summer. Hosted by the renowned Sigma Swimming club, these athletes will participate in a week-long program that combines friendly competition in the pool with exciting cultural experiences.

The program, taking place July 19-26, will see the Italian swimmers participate in joint training sessions with their Sigma counterparts. This will provide a unique opportunity for athletes from both sides of the Atlantic to learn from each other’s techniques, share best practices, and forge lasting friendships.

Beyond the pool, the program is designed to foster cultural understanding. The Italian delegation will be treated to a taste of Fort Worth’s vibrant culture, with visits to local museums, historical landmarks, and iconic attractions. This will allow them to experience the city’s unique blend of Western heritage, artistic spirit, and modern charm.

The program culminates in a friendly swim meet, where both teams will showcase their skills and sportsmanship. This exciting event will be open to the public, offering Fort Worth residents the chance to cheer on both the local Sigma swimmers and their international guests.

“We are thrilled to welcome these talented young athletes from Reggio Emilia,” said Coralee Flug, North Region Manager at Sigma Swimming. “This program is a fantastic opportunity to promote cultural exchange and build bridges between our communities, all while fostering a love for the sport of swimming.”
