Dan Gelderloos Interview

The Calvin sports information department sat down for an interview with Calvin swim coach Dan Gelderloos to reflect on the recently completed Summer Olympic Games. In the interview, Gelderloos reflected on the incredible achievements of Michael Phelps, the performances by the U.S. Men’s and Women’s Swim teams as a whole and the lessons learned this past year from former U.S. Olympic swimmer Josh Davis.

Gelderloos then gives his thoughts on the on-going construction with the Venema Aquatic Center on campus, new swim suit technology and its effect on collegiate swimming and a few tidbits on how some of his current and former swimmers are faring in triathlons.

The complete interview can be found on-line at:

  • Dan,

    Glad to hear that things are going well.  This new facility sound like it will help really elevate the program to the next level.

    Good luck in 2008 and 2009.  Go CMST!

  • Interesting interview! I enjoyed hearing Dan’s perspective on the Olympics, but also how he plans to use some of the lessons from these past games with his own teams in 2008-2009. Good stuff.
