Swimming experience 18 years
Hi, my name is Benedek Lendvai (Coach Benny). I'm an international student-athlete
from Budapest, Hungary competing at a national level in the NCAA Championships. After my
professional swimming career I'm trying to stay on the pool deck experiencing the coaching
field. I had the opportunity to volunteer and work as an assistant coach on the side of Shane
Tusup (3X Olympic Gold Medalist coach) and Darren Ward (CEO of Swimming Waikato
Hamilton, New Zeland). Before college swimming in the US, I completed an Olympic training
cycle practicing as a teammate of Katinka Hosszu (2X Olympic Gold medalist swimmer) for
over 3 years. Besides coaching professional swimmers I've been teaching kids and adults to swim providing water safety/swim lessons for the past 6 years.

What swimming
means to me?
Swimming has been a part of my life for the past 18 years meaning everything to me. It thought me how to stand up and get back to hard work after a failure. Competitive swimming also let me get to know my body really well. Physical shape was always something I cared about because of my health as a cancer survivor especially.
