The Irish Americans
In her 21 years as a coach, Cyndi Gallagher has led swimmers to Olympic gold and NCAA glory.
A former All-American swimmer, Gallagher coaches at her alma-mater, UCLA, where she once swam her way to several school records.
Now, after a successful career as an athlete at UCLA, Gallagher has coached more than 60 All-American athletes and a handful of national team members.
Gallagher brings a level of experience to her coaching that is enviable to even those she mentors – she represented the USA National team on several occasions and competed in the Olympic Trials in 1976 and 1980.
