Anthony Ervin is a famous swimmer who has been coaching my kids on the Oakland Undercurrent swim team for the past year or so.
Tony is well-know for tying for the gold medal with Gary Hall in the 2000 Sydney Olympics in the 50 meter freestyle. I also won a gold that year in the freestyle relay and went on to be world champion freestyle for the next few years until he graduating and then delving into the NYC punk rock scene. 12 years later, he has decided to try an Olympic Comeback and so far it's looking pretty good!
