Swimmers Race For Ill Coach
Four swimmers hope to raise funds for cancer-stricken coach Michael Lohberg, best known for coaching 41-year-old Olympic gold medal winner Dara Torres, according to www.swimnews.org.
Americans Randall Bal and Nick Brunelli will join their training mates with the Italian-based ADN Swim Project--Kazhakstan's Vladislav Polyakov and Serbian Milorad Cavic at the Bolzano International in Italy in a medley relay designed to earn cash for the German coach.
