Swim Coach Cole Gindhart

Cole Gindhart is an ETA athlete and undergraduate student who studies electrical engineering at Drexel University. Cole began swimming at age 5 and has continued to compete every year since. For Cole, swimming is not just a sport, but a way of life. He believes that swimming is not something that comes easily to people. Rather, swimming requires a lot of dedication and hard work to reprogram your body to learn how to move smoothly and efficiently through water.. Despite starting the sport at such an early age, Cole did not become a strong competitive swimmer until high school.

At Randolph High School in University City, Texas, Cole was a member of the track team for 2 years, a member of the swim team for 4 years, and the captain of the swim team for 3 years. Cole was a repeat district and regional champion, a member of all-state and all-area teams, a state finalist in the 200 IM and 100 fly, and served as captain of the South Texas team at Southern Zones Championships in 2008. Cole competed for the Division 1 Drexel Varsity Swim Team for 3 years where he specialized in the 200 and 400 IM, and the distance freestyle events. He was a conference finalist in the 400 IM in 2010 and was named an Academic All-Area Swimmer in 2011.

Cole began competing in triathlons in the summer of 2012 and fell in love with the sport. He has completed four Olympic distance triathlons and intends to continue competing as a member of the Drexel Triathlon Club.
