Cheering for Optima Synchro Alumni Competing in the Tokyo Olympics

This year’s Tokyo Olympics is especially endearing to all of us in Optima Synchro because one of our very own alumni – Lindi Schroeder – will represent the US in the duet events, swimming with 2016 Olympian Anita Alvarez. Lindi started her synchro (now known as artistic swimming) career training under Head Coach Svetlana when she was 5 years old. You can learn more about Lindi’s experience in Optima Synchro here. Her hard work, dedication, and grace inspire all our young swimmers and we will cheering for her on Aug-2 for Duet Free Prelim, Aug-3 Duet Tech Prelim, and Aug-4 Duet Free Final. Go Lindi! Go Optima!
