Coach David Marsh​ and Team Elite Aquatics​ is thrilled to announce the addition of two-time Olympian Kristian Gkolomeev​ to Team Elite.

Coming off of a 21.44 runner-up finish at the 2018 European Championships for Greece, as well as a 4th place finish in the 50 Fly and 47.51 4×100 Freestyle relay split, Marsh said, “Kristian is one of the top swimmers in Europe and the best sprinter the nation of Greece has ever had. He has great upside and is
motivated to explore his fullest potential in San Diego with Team Elite.”
