November 2013 @UCSB

Olympic gold medalist and UC Santa Barbara alumnus Jason Lezak is coming back to campus Nov. 9 to accept the Alumni Association Distinguished Alumni Award. Lezak swam the last leg of the now legendary men’s 4x100 freestyle relay overtaking the French team and establishing the fastest split time in history in the event. In all he has collected 8 Olympic medals, seven world titles and five U.S. titles. He will receive his award at halftime of the UC Santa Barbara vs. Cal Poly men’s soccer game Nov. 9. The game is preceded by a special reception to meet Lezak at the Mosher Alumni House which will benefit men’s and women’s swimming scholarships. For more information about the event click here.
