Len Galluzzi - 2015
It is with great sadness we report the passing of Len Galluzzi on Monday, March 23rd. Len, member of the Metropolitan Hall of Fame Class of 2001, was a long time fixture in both Metropolitan and USA Swimming as an athlete, coach and administrator, and, along with his brother Don, was synonymous with New York City swimming.

He coached numerous high-school, club and college teams. Most recently he coached at NYCC taking over the Senior program and re-writing the record books while exhibiting great love, compassion, and support for his swimmers.

Prior to that, Len assisted Don at Columbia University where he helped develop Tony Corbisiero (Metro Hall of Fame Class of 2000) into an American Record Holder and NCAA Champion. Upon Don's departure, Len took over the men's team for the 1983-1984 season, defeating Harvard and capturing the long sought-after Ivy League Dual Meet Championship.

Len was the long time coach of the Gotham Aquatic Association, a regional powerhouse in the 1980s where he was the primary coach of John Witchell (Metro Hall of Fame Class of 2002) who was a Junior National Champion at age 15 and became an American Record Holder and NCAA Champion while at Stanford University.

Len, himself, was an accomplished swimmer, qualifying for Olympic Trials in the 200 breaststroke.

Len was a New York City Public School teacher for over 30 years and will be remembered by the thousands of children he helped both in and out of the pool.

A memorial service will be planned for late May / early June. In lieu of flowers please send any cards of condolence to Don Galluzzi at 9 Tenafly Court, Tenafly, New Jersey 07670. Donations in Len's name are encouraged to any charity of choice. A scholarship fund in Len's name will also be established.

Congratulations to Newly Elected Metro Junior Athlete Rep Emily Sullivan
Thank you to the 4 athletes who ran for Junior Athlete Representative. Congratulations to the new junior athlete representative Emily Sullivan from Rivertown Aquatics. Here is what Emily hopes to improve within Metro during her term: "What I would like to see improved in Metro Swimming would be athlete leadership. I would like to see seasoned swimmers mentoring the younger swimmers, encouraging them and assisting them with their stroke technique and helping them to enjoy the sport. I would like to be part of a group to develop a program to formally encourage this to happen."
