John has an outstanding personal history of swimming, beginning as a youth in the rivers of Nigeria and continuing as a college swimmer at UNL and an Olympic swimmer for his home country in 1976 and 1980.
He has coached with both GNST and LSS (Lincoln Select Swimming) and has trained some of the area’s most successful swimmers. He has also coached the Midwestern All Star and Zone teams (head coach 2011) and was awarded the Midwestern Age Group Coach of the year in 2010.
Please see his incredible swimming bio in the Coaches' Section.
John is married with two grown children; his son graduated from West Point Military Academy and his daughter attends UNL. They were both avid swimmers like their father.
We are very fortunate to have him mentor our swimmers.
