Nagy Inducted to International Swimming Hall of Fame

Jozsef Nagy, the Hungarian born coach now coaching at the Vancouver National Training Centre at UBC was formally inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame, at a ceremony in Fort Lauderdale, FL, over the weekend.

Back in the late 1980s, Nagy developed the "Wave Breaststroke" that revolutionized breaststroke swimming; along wtih his Hall of Fame swimmer at the time, Mike Barrowman, he made a huge impact on the way breaststroke is swum.  The ideas were originally created on paper, then proven in “practice” (not to mention racing) years later

Nagy has continued to be at the forefront of the evolution of the stroke, having another of his swimmers, Annamay Pierse, break a world record almost 20 years after Barrowman dominated the stroke.
