Raising An Olympian: Richard Weinberger, Open Water Swimming

One of BC’s best in the 2012 London Olympics is Richard Weinberger. A local athlete taking part in open water swimming – which makes up a portion of the 34 different swimming events. Just two of the events are 10km in open water and Weinberger is in one of them.

The open-water competition will be held August 9 and 10, in the Serpentine in London’s Hyde Park. (see schedule at end of blog)

Of the 34 different swimming events at the Olympics this year, there are 17 males and 17 females taking part. Aside from the two, 10 km open-water swims; the rest of the 32 events will take place in a 50 m, long course pool.

Swimmer, Richard Weinberger and his family are the neighbours of Matrix Group owners, Likky and Sam Lavji. Instead of knocking on their door to borrow a cup of sugar, this time we asked his parents, Marina and Tony, for their time and they shared with us what it is like to raise an Olympian. They provided some great insight to help you ‘really’ get to know the stories behind all the great athletes that represent Canada and their families.
