Video Memorial Tribute to Randy Bennett

A celebration of the life lived by Randy Bennett, held at Saanich Commonwealth Place on Saturday, May 9, was a touching service, with hundreds of people from the swimming community gathering to pay tribute and share their fond memories.

Longtime friend Greg Sanderson served as the host for the event, while swimmers and coaches, past and present, friends, family, and colleagues all gathered.  A number of them, including swimmers Ryan Cochrane and Julia Wilkinson, had the opportunity to take the podium and tell of their experiences, lessons, and inspiration they will take from the relentlessness (a word that surfaced many times) with which Randy lived his life.

As a bookend to the service, Swimming Canada put together this moving video tribute.
