University of Florida Head Men’s Swimming & Diving Coach Anthony Nesty will join hosts Joe Auer and Chris Emig on the SwimmerJoe Show on Sunday, Jan. 13 at 6:00 pm EST. The live event can be streamed on both the Swimming World and International Swimming Hall of Fame Facebook pages. Replays will also be available on Spotify and Amazon’s Alexa.

In the pool, Nesty was a two-time Olympian and won the first gold medal for his country of Suriname in the 1988 Olympics. He then took home five NCAA titles for the University of Florida during his career. The only two Gators to have passed that mark of five national championships are Caeleb Dressel and Ryan Lochte. He was inducted into the UF Athletic Hall of Fame in April 2002.
