HISTORY OF THE SWIMMING CLUB

The current swim team was created in 1967 by George Gate. Very quickly, the elite development philosophy and the exceptional recruiting system boosted the performance of the athletes.

Since its founding, the team has contributed to the success of 16 Olympic athletes and has won 5 Olympic medals. The swimming team also has more than 250 national champions.

Even today, the new generation of coaches and athletes applies the fundamentals, vision and philosophy of founder George Gate.
