To the Swim BC Membership:
It is with very heavy hearts that we inform the membership of Swim BC of the passing of Xiaoping Lu, the respected and revered Gators Head Coach. Xiaoping passed away of a heart attack two weeks ago while visiting his home town in China. Xiaoping had been the Head Coach of the Gators Swim Club (Vancouver) since 1997.
I know Swim BC will be joined by the BC swimming community in passing along our heartfelt condolences to Xiaoping’s wife and daughter, and the Gator swimming family. Our hearts are with you. Xiaoping’s gentle nature, positive support and dedication will be sorely missed.
