Josh Davis – At the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, he won gold medals by swimming for the winning U.S. teams in the 4×100-meter freestyle relay and 4x200-meter freestyle relay. He earned a third gold medal by swimming for the first-place U.S. team in the preliminary heats of the 4×100-meter medley relay. He also competed in the 200-meter freestyle, and finished seventh in the event final with a time of 1:48.54.

Four years later at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia, he served as the captain of the U.S. swimming team. At the 2000 Olympics, he won silver medals swimming for the second-place U.S. teams in the preliminary heats of the 4×100-meter freestyle relay, and the final of the 4×200-meter freestyle relay.  He again competed in the 200-meter freestyle, finishing in fourth place in the final with a time of 1:46.73.

Jason Lezak - former American record holder in the 100-meter freestyle. He competed in four Olympic Games, in 2000, 2004, 2008, and 2012, and won eight Olympic medals, two bronze, two silver, and four gold.

In 2008 He anchored the U.S. 4×100-meter freestyle relay team that won the gold medal and set a new world record. In the final 25 meters, Lezak overtook French team anchor Alain Bernard (the world record holder in the 100-meter freestyle going into the relay) to win gold despite Bernard having nearly a full body length’s advantage when Lezak started his leg and half a body length with 25 meters from the end. Lezak “drafted” off of the Frenchman, overtaking Bernard in a split time of 46.06, the fastest 100-meter freestyle split in history by nearly six-tenths of a second.

$35.00 before June 8th.
$50.00 for same day registration.

After the breakout clinic, the North Texas LMSC Meeting will take place at TFA.  All positions are up for election.
