FAIRVIEW PARK, Ohio — A large crowd gathered Jan. 30 to celebrate the grand opening of the city’s newest business, Goldfish Swim School.

Special guest Diana Munz was on hand to sign autographs, show off the three medals she won as an Olympic swimmer and to chat with youngsters and their families about swimming. Munz, a Cleveland native and celebrated swimmer, won a gold medal in the 4×200 meter freestyle and a silver medal in the 400 meter freestyle events in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia. Four years later, she won a bronze medal in the 800 meter freestyle event in the Athens, Greece Olympic Games.

Goldfish Swim School offers swim lessons for youngster’s ages 4 months to 12 years, as well as a swim team, jump start clinics, birthday party packages and family swims.
