Eight time olympic medalist Jason Lezak hosted a swimming clinic for the Chico AquaJets at In Motion Fitness on Thursday. He helped by giving swimmers instructions on strokes, drills, starts, and turns. He also took the time to sign autographs and take pictures with the kids. Lezak competed in every summer olympics from 2000 to 2012, winning four gold, two silver, and two bronze medals.

"It's about sharing with the kids, inspiring the kids," Lezak said. "It just makes me really excited to see little kids having that dream, having that excitement for the sport."
