REDDING, Calif. - Two Redding teen swimmers are heading to the Olympic Training enter in Colorado Monday.

This weekend Action News Now reporter Elizabeth Zelidon spoke with the pair to find out how they preparing for the big challenge and honor.

When Audrey Bull and Winn Aung jump into the pool it's electrifying, said Zelidon.

"[It's]the most exhilarating feeling. It's really cool. It's like you're alive!" Bull said. 

The hard work of Redding teen swimmers Audrey Bull and Winn Aung is now leading them to the "gold." The two have been invited to take part in the Olympic Training Center Camp in Colorado.

Aung is going for the second time in his young life. He is 16-years-old and attended the same Olympic camp two years ago.

Bull, who is only 13, is going for the first time.

"It's just nice to know that all your hard work pays off and its good - that even if you haven't been doing it for as long as other people that you still have the same opportunities," she said. 

Aung said he feels really honored because it is a big accomplishment. "Every swimmer wants to go there at least once in their lifetime if they're serious about swimming - so I feel really honored to be able to go a second time," he said. 

Winn feels like he will get more out of the training camp this time around. "I was pretty young, so I kinda goofed off," he said, "but this time I'm hoping to be a little more serious."

As for first-timer Audrey Bull,  she says s is excited to gain every bit of experience she can.

"I just want to get the experience and know that I could be there one day," she said. "Yeah! That's the dream!"

The two will be leaving early Monday morning from Sacramento. Everyone back home and on the Redding Swim Team is wishing them the very best.
