Israeli Syncronized Swimmers to train in Florida before Rio Olympics
The Jewish Historical Society of Southwest Florida is proud to be the facilitator of the historic visit of Olympics-bound Israelis to Naples, Florida. Four exhibitions are planned in partnership with the Jewish Federation of Collier County. "We are looking forward to training in Naples,” said Tatiana Tsym, Head Coach of Israel’s Synchronized Swimming, who had come scouting this location two years ago. “It is friendly, warm, and only a one-hour time difference with Rio. I am hoping our new friends here will help set the Duet onto the steady path, both physically and emotionally, to meet this challenge.” Photos by Gwen Greenglass and Ted Epstein.
