Nottingham Forest swimmer Lucas Leschly Bang (pictured) is excited to be back in the water, even though the season was modified to accommodate social distancing. This is his second season as a member of the Nottingham Forest Sharks swim team, and his favorite event is breaststroke. Last year, Lucas represented his team in the breaststroke event at the annual Meet of Champs and came in fourth place. Although the team is not competing against others in the league, the Sharks have intra-team games and races for each age group, led by coaches Andrew Askounis, Jack Brennan, Charlie Williams, Caroline Oteiza and Elizabeth Go.
