10 facts about an Olympic hero



Jason Lezak, 32 of Irvine, will go down as one of the greatest Olympians of all-time for his incredible, world-record setting, come-from-behind, anchor-leg swim in the 4x100 freestyle relay in the Beijing Olympics. Here are 10 facts you may not know about Lezak.

  • He's the fourth U.S. Jewish gold medalist.
  • At 32, he's the oldest man on the U.S. Olympic team.
  • He trains, without a coach, in Irvine.
  • He's a graduate of Irvine High School.
  • His wife was an Olympic world swimmer.
  • He was a high-school All-American water polo player before concentrating on swimming.
  • He started swimming with the Irvine Novaquatics at age 5.
  • His father is in leather goods.
  • His mother is an elementary school teacher.
  • When he was 10, he had to make a tough decision between the finals of a run, hit, and throw competition at Angel Stadium for baseball and Junior Olympics for swimming. Swimming turned out to be the best choice where he went on to win a couple of events at the competition.
  • He's a huge weightlifter.

As a swimmer and water polo player in my youth (a gadzillion years ago), I follow both sports closely. I have never, ever seen a performance such as the one Jason turned in as the anchor of the 4X100 relay the other night! So outstanding was that effort that it has inspired other team members to greater heights. Good for the "old fella"!
