“It was quite an experience to be able to meet two Olympians. It was amazing to watch Colin swim – he was extremely graceful and he swam was very fast. I hope to see another clean air champion again.” ~Alina

“My experience with the clean air champions was very memorable. It was a great privilege to meet Jessica Tudos and Colin Russell who are both amazing athletes.” ~Amisha

“I really enjoyed the Clean Air Champions experience; it was really cool meeting Olympians and watching Colin swim with the school’s team. I hope they come again, because it was fun watching.” ~ Crystal
