#143 Arthur Albiero

Inside with Brett Hawke

Arthur Albiero has been the Head Coach of the Men's and Women's Swimming & Diving Teams at the University of Louisville since 2003. When he took the job, the men's team had half of a scholarship. The pool was in a basement. The team had no culture of winning. Fast forward 18 years and all that has been turned around.  Born and raised in Brazil, Coach Albiero has an amazing swimming story. At 12 years old he got the opportunity to attend Don Gambril's swim camp at the University of Alabama. He walked on at Cal State Bakersfield, swimming for the legendary Ernie Maglischo. His first job coaching was at Kenyon College under Hall of Fame Coach Jim Steen. Arthur has had major success at U of L, recently winning the Men's ACC Championship by just 2 points. According to Coach Albiero, those two points were years in the making.  He was named to Team USA's coaching staff for the 2016 Rio Olympics and served as Head Coach for Pan Pacs in 2018. Up next: Tokyo.  Enjoy!

Arthur Albiero on 1st ACC Title in Program History: 2 Points Built on 17 Years

The SwimSwam Podcast

We sat down with the University of Louisville head coach Arthur Albiero, who is fresh off of his team's first men's ACC championship title in program history. Albiero explans the attitude of gratitude and keeping things day-to-day that got the cardinals through the season and he believes aided them through the ACC Championship meet. On paper, not even Albiero was confident that the cardinal could win, but his swimmers kept fighting and kept the meet close throughout, culminating in the last session when they took the lead with just the 4x100 free relay to go and was able to hold on by taking 2nd in that event.
