Experience:

4-time Olympic Gold Medalist.

Gerry’s knowledge, experience and passion for swimming are one of a kind. If it were not for him, I may not have made the 2004 Olympic team. His mentoring and support during my career was important part of my ascent to be the fastest backstroke in the world. Gerry is also the open water swim guru, and if I were training for the Olympics again in open water or trying to be a triathlete, I’d look nowhere else but to him.

Experience:

Gymnast, 1984 Olympic Gold medalist.

On the road to Olympic Gold I’ve had the good fortune to have been exposed to some of the best coaches my sport had to offer. Years later, when I decided to take up swimming I had the good fortune yet again, to meet up with Coach Gerry Rodrigues. He definitely had his work cut out for him with this “fish out of water” Olympic gymnast—let’s just say I wasn’t exactly a “natural” in this sport. After several months of listening, learning, and applying his techniques, my experience culminated in a two Mile pier to pier ocean swim and a continued love for being in the water. I’m eternally grateful to Coach Gerry for his guidance, patience, and expertise… Not only is he a great coach, he’s a great human being.
