Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Anthony Conrad Nesty (born November 25, 1967) is a former Surinamese swimmer who was the second black athlete to win an Olympic medal in swimming (after Enith Brigitha in Montreal 1976). Anthony Nesty was born in Trinidad and Tobago in 1967, the youngest of five children. Nesty's family migrated to Suriname but the exact age of his emigration is unclear: some biographies of the athlete say 'at nine months old' and others say 'at three years old.' Nesty trained and competed in Suriname and the Caribbean through the beginning of his teenage years. After placing 21st in the 100-meter butterfly at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, Nesty entered the Bolles School in Jacksonville, Florida, a renowned program for training and preparation of elite, world-class swimmers.show more
