The Merchiston Preparatory School squad swimmers were delighted when Darian Townsend, a Merchiston old boy and Olympic gold medallist visited the school recently. The boys were taught new techniques and skills to improve their performance in the pool. He shared some of his life stories and most importantly how to reach goals that you set for yourself.
