I haven’t had a ton of coaches in my swim career but Gerry Rodrigues without a doubt was the best.  Besides his dedication and hard work coming up with interesting and challenging sets and his knowledge and emphasis on technique and form, it was his ability to inspire me to want to challenge myself.  Perhaps it was his example of hard work or the seriousness and pride he took in coaching or some other less identifiable leadership quality, but more than any other coach I gave and wanted to give far more effort to improve when he coached.
