About Klim Swim
Widely regarded as one of the world’s greatest swimmers, Michael Klim rose to stardom at the World Swimming Championships in 1998 where he won seven medals (including four gold). Since then, Michael has been a consistent figurehead at every major swimming event and championship, his career highpoint coming at the Sydney 2000 Olympics where he won two gold and two silver medals.
Michael has always regarded quality swimming as the most important aspect of his training and he’s long been interested in nurturing Australia’s next generation of swimmers. To this end he established Klim Swim, an Australian-owned, family company dedicated to teaching the sound technical foundations that made Michael, himself, a champion.
These principles, incorporated in the Klim Swim program, ensure that children learn to swim safely and correctly from a young age. The whole Klim Swim approach has been developed over a period of many years, Michael, his former coaches, fellow champion swimmers and technical experts creating a program that is both effective and easily replicated at any swimming facility.
The Klim Swim brand is both nationally and internationally recognised as a household name associated with the world of elite swimming, helping to make it the clear choice for customers looking for a swim school.
“I believe that Klim Swim is the most effective way to teach people of all ages to swim safely and competently and provides potential champions with a sound basis from which to launch into elite training,” says Michael. “I am personally committed to the ongoing development of this system as I further develop and refine my own skills while swimming on the international stage. “I will be updating and improving the program on a regular basis and staying closely involved in the program to make Klim Swim Australia’s leading swim school.”
Holding company, Klimsports Management Pty Ltd, has been in operation for the past five years and involved in the delivery of sports management services to a number of sectors within the sports industry.
