New York Sharks Aquatics’ Fergalicious Video

The New York Sharks Aquatics throwdown with their Fergalicious video.

From the Team’s site:

Todd Langenmayr – NY Sharks Team Founder – is a native of Suffern, NY and currently lives in Mahwah, NJ with his wife, Kristen, and their three children. Todd started the New York Sharks in September 2003 with 38 athletes. By the end of the first year, the team grew to 112 athletes. Today, the team has close to 200 swimmers. Throughout Todd’s tenure as Head Coach of New York Sharks, he has developed Metropolitan Record Holders, multiple Speedo Sectional Qualifiers, multiple Junior National Qualifiers, multiple Senior National qualifier, dozens of All-Americans, and numerous Top-16 in the nation qualifiers, as well as an NCSA Junior National Champion (Stanley Wong, 50 Freestyle, 2011).

Todd’s personal coaching accomplishments also include: Being voted the 2008-2009 Senior Coach of the year for Metropolitan Swimming; being chosen to be a coach at the 2008 Eastern Zone Select Camp in Buffalo, New York; and was chosen serveon the Metropolitan Swimming Senior Committee.  He recently led Stanley Wong to a third place at the 2010 Junior National Championships in the 50 yard Freestyle and a first place in the 2011 NCSA Junior National Championships in the 50 yard Freestyle. Todd has coached for Tappan Zee Varsity, Clarkstown Varsity, Pearl River Girls Varisty, and is currently a consultant for all levels of New York Sharks swimming.

John Alaimo – who stars in the opening frame of the video – is a native of Blauvelt, NY, and a 2009 graduate of Vassar College with a B.A. in History and a concentration in US Foreign Policy.
John has coached for the New York Sharks since he graduated from Vassar in May 2009. Since then, he has represented the Metropolitan LSC as a Metro Zone Coach five times. From 2009-2011, John coached the former “Senior” group, and had the pleasure of working with many student-athletes, helping them progress from Junior Olympic level to Speedo Sectional levels. In 2011, John took over as Head Coach for the Senior 1 group and was fortunate to be able to work with extremely gifted athletes.
John’s coaching philosphy is rooted in finding a balance between hard work in the water, hard work on land, a focus on race psychology, and enjoyment for the sport. John currently serves as Co-Head Coach and works in conjunction with Coach Wagner with the Senior 1 Group.
Don Wagner (co-head swimming coach) is the former Head Coach at University of Alabama and Texas A&M University. Don’s a 6-time National team coach. He’s developed over a dozen Olympians and one world record holder.
