Anthony Ervin - Olympic Swimmer

Anthony Ervin is a famous swimmer who was coaching my kids on the Oakland Undercurrent swim team.

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 decided to try an Olympic Comeback and I built him this website. The comeback succeeded and he made it into the Olympic championship heat for 50 free but finished 5th. Then he kept at it and won the gold at th 2016 Olympics, the oldest (35) swimmer to do so.
