In 1937, a schoolteacher on the island of Maui challenged a group of poverty-stricken sugar plantation kids to swim upstream against the current of their circumstance. The goal? To become Olympians. They were the Three-Year Swim Club. This is their story!

This is a great article about swimming in the Adver tiser. Skippa Diaz. "It's a lifelong activity, and it relaxes the body and mind," Diaz said. Diaz also said the training and values he learned as a youth swimmer helped him greatly in football. "It gives you big-time strength," Diaz said. "It's very demanding, with practices in the morning and afternoon - a double-whammy. But it gave me that work ethic, the belief that if you want to be good in anything, you gotta put in the time."
 The Story of the butterfly
A man found a cocoon of a butterfly.
One day a small opening appeared.
He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to squeeze its body through the tiny hole.
Then it stopped, as if it couldn't go further.....
