13 June 2013Olympic swimmer Greg Whyte Dives into Turtle Tots

Turtle Tots is an educational swimming program designed to begin during pregnancy and continue after baby’s birth, up until four

years old. The programme was established to support and encourage parents to introduce their newborn to swimming.

Whyte, who is father to three small children, has collaborated with Turtle Tots as he understands and promotes the benefits of teaching children to swim from birth. “Babies benefit enormously from swimming as it improves water confidence and starts the process of learning to swim properly. It also helps babies to create a close and trusting bond with their parent or carer.

"The Turtle Tots programme is an excellent form of exercise during and after pregnancy. It’s one of the best exercises that children and parents can both benefit from – offering a great opportunity for you and your baby to get close in a warm, protected and fun environment” says Whyte.

Whyte competed in two Olympics, won a silver medal in the Modern Pentathlon World Championships and swam from Europe to Africa. He continues to use his talent and sports expertise to support various charitable causes. Whyte pushed David Walliams and Eddie Izzard to their physical limits for Sport Relief and coached the celebrities who climbed Mount Kilimanjaro for Comic Relief, including Denise Van Outen.
