Joao Delucca is one of our most experienced top level clinicians as a two time Olympian, having competed in London in 2012 and his hometown of Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
As a three time NCAA Champion, Joao has mastered both the 100 and 200 lengths of freestyle racing. However, his career did not slow down there. Joao went on to win a Gold Medal at the World Championships in Doha, Qatar in 2014.
Winning a Gold Medal on a world stage in the sport of swimming requires the utmost discipline, attention to detail, work ethic, and passion for being the best. Joao Delucca brings all of these skills to the table as a Fitter and Faster clinician and gives his all to the swimmers he coaches.
“Coach Joao did an excellent job explaining and demonstrating the streamline and butterfly techniques, and reinforced them with the kids using different fun drills. He was also an inspiration to the kids with his successful swimming career and Olympic experience.” – Jun in Stamford, CT
