Claire Swims Like a Fish!

July 27, 2010 at 2:18 pm Leave a comment

The bicep in last week’s post belongs to our environmental educator, Claire Russo!  A little known fact is that Claire is a powerhouse athlete and earlier this year went to the United States Masters Swimming National Championships where she finished in the top ten in two individual and two relay races.  We think her swimming is inspired by all the fish in the Nature Center.  While Claire is 4’11” tall, the Atlantic Sturgeon like those on exhibit typically grow 6 to 8 feet long.  Despite the size difference, we think Claire would have a good shot at winning a race against the sturgeon.
