Stefan Gherghel brings his experience as one of the fastest athletes in the history of collegiate swimming and as a veteran Olympian covering 3 Olympiads Sydney, Athens and Beijing.

Gherghel was the first two-time NCAA Champion in Alabama's storied history, winning back-to-back NCAA 200 butterfly crowns in 2002 and 2003. His winning time at the 2003 championship ranks third all-time in the 200 butterfly behind Olympic champions Pablo Morales and Melvin Stewart. And in another tie to Olympic champions, on his way to his first NCAA title, Gherghel smashed the long standing school record then held by 1984 Olympic Gold medalist Jon Sieben.

Internationally, Gherghel has been a force. He earned a silver medal in the 200m butterfly at the 2004 FINA World Championships, was fifth in the 200 butterfly at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games and as a 30 year old twelth in the 200 butterfly in Beijing.
