Thank you to a pioneer - who gave a damn about swimming

We have lost one of life's great characters.  On behalf of our swimmers who have been making the most of our 50m pool for over 25 years, we mourn the loss of John Fay - the Phantom Swimmer who ensured the paper was delivered, the banter was always interesting and the pool was always our special place.


Thank you for fighting to ensure a vision was achieved of a great place for Auckland's swimmers to keep active for life, a hub for social interaction and friendships and relationships made.


The Olympic is our home (and the Tep's a home for many prior to that).  John made sure our home thrived.


Rest in peace John Fay (1951-2022)
