Desert Mermaids Synchronized Swimming

Wed, Mar 12, 2014 (4:06 p.m.)

Linda Tannenbaum, a U.S. Synchro Swimming Hall of Fame member who retired before synchronized swimming debuted in the 1984 Olympics, is grooming some of the most successful young swimmers in the nation through her Summerlin-based Nevada Desert Mermaids club. Among the standouts: Emma Burns and Hannah Halverson, who in 2013 beat more than 40 duets to win the U.S. Age Group Synchronized Swimming Championships, and Hannah Heffernan and Viktoria Mills, who have earned a spot on the national training squad after being identified as two of the nation’s top 11- and 12-year-old swimmers.
