Ian Hentenaar has dived into swimming competitions literally thousands of times in his young life.
The past several days, however, were probably unlike any other for the Winder-Barrow High School swimming standout.
Hentenaar had the opportunity to compete at the same event with some of the biggest names in the swimming world in the Athens Bulldog Swim Club Grand Slam Invitational. Hentenaar joined swimming icons Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte at the four-day event and was able to turn in strong performances himself, all the while being in the midst of swimming royalty.
