La Turbie Natation Azur 2016 – two-time Olympic swimming champion Alain Bernard greets the student

Every year since 2014 the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, the French Swimming Federation’s (FFN) Cote d’Azur Committee, and the municipality of La Turbie have joined forces to teach children how to swim and gain a better understanding of the water environment in complete safety before the summer.
 
On Tuesday 28th June 2016, as a conclusion to the 2016 series of swimming courses (30th May – 1st July), 230 children from La Turbie, Peille and La Grave de Peille lived an exceptional experience when they met two-time Olympic swimming champion Alain Bernard, the French Swimming Federation’s (FFN) ambassador for the region.
