Lenny Krayzelburg Speaker Profile
Lenny Krayzelburg was born September 28, 1975 and is an American backstroke swimmer, and Olympic Gold Medalist and former World Record Holder. He swam in the 2000 and 2004 Olympics.
This turn in Krayzelburg's career proved to be successful. He finished second in the American trials for the 100 meters event to secure a place in the 2004 Athens Olympics, alongside training partner, Aaron Peirsol. His good shape enabled him to reach the finals. He came into this final knowing this might be his career's last, but missed out on a medal by just 2/100 of a second, with a qualitative result of 54.38, whereas Peirsol won gold with 54.06. Krayzelburg made up for the upset by helping the American team to win yet another Olympic gold in the 4 x 100 m relay, despite not swimming in the final of this event (he swam in the preliminary round, while Peirsol took his spot in the final).
Krayzelburg is known as one of the physically strongest swimmers around, and for his powerful arm strokes, a product of his training regimen and bodybuilder-esque physique. He is 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs just above 187 lbs.
Lenny owes lots of his career achievements to his father Oleg, who has been a significant part of his success by repeatedly urging and pushing him to go on, even when Lenny wanted to quit at the age of 14. He enjoys reading as well as working with computers. Additionally, he was voted as 1999's USA swimmer of the year.
In July 2005 Lenny opened two swim schools operating out of the JCC (Jewish Community Center) system. His prominent school, Royal Swim Team, is one of the best teams in Los Angeles. Occasionally, Lenny visits Royal Swim Team and coaches or teaches swim stroke clinics. His main school, which is taught simultaneously in 3 pools everyday of the week, operates in the West Hills area of the San Fernando Valley at the Los Angeles Jewish Community Center, Calabasas High School Pool, and Culver City Swimming Pool, while the another is located in the Mid-city area of Los Angeles at the Westside Jewish Community Center. Both schools teach the Smartfish Method and are flourishing.
