LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Some of the best Olympic swimmers in the world were in Louisville Monday morning, teaching students from eight local middle schools.

They even brought their gold, silver, and bronze medals, before teaching kids the importance of water safety.

The message was also how the Olympic experience can be applied to the students' own lives.

And what better way to prove hard work pays off than by letting the kids hold an Olympic gold medal?
