More than 50 cars were washed to help support the swimming duo.

Isidora Sekaric says it's going to be a once in a lifetime experience. "It's in Lithuania and a bunch of kids from all around the world come, you get to meet all these other amazing athletes in different sports and then it's just so much fun. It's a great experience."
