Someone asked about Paul Bergen, he is an age group coach where I swim. I enjoy hearing him yell most mornings. He has some great kids and Inky with him, too.

Wow.

He is famous since 1976 when he gave pointers to Tim Shaw.

Then coaching Tracy Caulkins in Tennessee.

And now Inge de Bruijn (Ned.).

Or maybe yesterday (i.e.: 2000) Inge de Bruijn, but not today.

One of the coaches in San Diego swam in the U.S. Trials of 2000 in 200 backstroke, under Bergen.

Paul Bergen was a lot into training race horses too.

He is still coaching Inky. She was filmed Wed. morning for a domentary in the Netherlands. Really neat talking to her, too.
