Craig Beardsley

Craig Beardsley was heavily favored to win the 200m butterfly as a member of the 1980 Olympic Team, only to be forced from competition when politics intervened, and the US boycotted Moscow's Summer Games.Between 1980 and 1983, Craig held both the World and the American Records in the 200m butterfly, and he won Gold at the Pan American Games in both 1979 and 1983. A nine-time US National Champion, Craig captured another Gold in the same event at the NCAA Championships while an All-American at the University of Florida.

PS - I first met Craig when I was a coach for the 1981 US National Swim Team that competed against the Soviet National Team in Kiev, Soviet Union. Craig was a member of the team and it was a thrill to take splits for him as he broke his own World Record in the 200 Fly at the meet. I know he will be a very entertaining, educational and motivational speaker.  Bob
