Laurentian University renames its pool in honour of Jeno Tihanyi
October, 09, 2008
- Laurentian University has renamed its pool, this afternoon, in honour of Dr. Jeno Tihanyi, former faculty member in the School of Human Kinetics and founder of the Sudbury Laurentian Swim Club.
The Piscine de l'or olympique Jeno Tihanyi Olympic Gold Pool now dually recognizes Jeno Tihanyi and Laurentian alumnus Alex Baumann, whose two gold-medal performances at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Summer Games brought prestige and acclaim to Sudbury and Canada.
"Dr. Tihanyi represents a figure of excellence on all levels for the university, said Robert Bourgeois, Laurentian's acting president. "He had the gift to bring the best out of people, from the students in his classes to the swimmers he coached, novice or elite. We are proud to honour today Jeno Tihanyi's immeasurable contribution to Laurentian University and Sudbury."
Alex Baumann, who considered Jeno Tihanyi as his greatest motivator, mentor and friend, attended the renaming ceremony.
"I would not be the person I am today, if it wasn't for Doc," said Alex Baumann, now executive director of Road to Excellence, Canada's Summer Olympic initiative. "Jeno Tihanyi was a great mentor and had a profound impact on many students and athletes. On behalf of Jeno's family and myself, I would like to thank Laurentian University for permanently recognizing his legacy on campus."
Jeno Tihanyi, better known as Doc, coached swimming for 44 years. He trained Alex Baumann from the age of nine in the Laurentian Swim Club. Alex's training in the pool from 1973 to 1987 was crucial to his international success. As a swim coach, Doc's approach was based on his pioneering research and philosophy of athletic development, which Alex exemplified through his dedication and desire for excellence. Jeno Tihanyi's coaching achievements included 16 world swimming records, being named Canadian swim coach of the year four times and induction into the Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame.
Jeno Tihanyi passed away in Sudbury on March 4, 2007.
