    At 13, he considered quitting swimming because of the difficulties of fitting training time around school, a job and learning English.

    He complained that chlorine caused most of his body hair to fall out.
    His family were Jewish refugees from the Soviet Union.
    His first college coach said, 'He was that kid who worked harder than anyone else. The more I watched him, the more I thought, 'This kid's potential is unlimited.' '
