'Thorpedo' working with Cook Islands swimmers

Legendary Australian Swimmer Ian Thorpe is on a visit to Rarotonga to meet the Cook Islands Aquatic Federation.

The multiple Olympic gold medallist came with a delegation from FINA, the World governing body for Aquatic Sports.

The Cook Islands Aquatic Federation swimming programmes in the schools start with the kids at a young age, with some already looking out for a Cook Islands swimming representation at the Brisbane Olympics in 2032.
