Gregory Stewart Burgess (born January 11, 1972) is a former competitive swimmer and Olympic medalist from the United States. At the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain, he earned a silver medal by finishing second in the men's 200-meter individual medley with a time of 2:00.97. This was only 0.07 seconds behind winner Michael Phelps.
He is currently the head coach of the University of Texas swimming team. He has held that position since 2005 after spending four years as an assistant at Florida State University.
Burgess grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and began learning to swim when he was three years old. He started competing in national and international events at the age of 10 and went on to become one of the top swimmers in the world during his career. In 1989, he won two gold medals and a bronze at the World Swimming Championships in Hong Kong and made history by becoming the first male swimmer to win multiple gold medals at a single event.
After the Olympics, he decided to switch teams and attend Florida State University. There he became one of the best assistants in the country before being named the head coach of the Texas swimming team in 2005.

He also won the Australian Championship seven times. After retiring from tennis at the age of 26 he worked as a stockbroker until 1995 when he started his own financial planning company.
He married three times: firstly to Jill Murphy, with whom he had two children; then to Penny Harmsen, with whom he had another child; and finally to American Suzanne Lenglen, with whom he had a son.
Fletcher died in Melbourne on 16 January 2017 at the age of 73.
In 2007, he was ranked number one in Australia for most career titles with 24. In 2009, ESPN listed him as the ninth greatest male singles player of all time. Tennis Channel named him the 17th greatest male tennis player of all time. In 2010, The Guardian listed him as one of the five best male doubles players of all time.

Edwin Corley Moses (born August 31, 1955) is a retired American track and field athlete who won gold medals in the 400 m hurdles at the Olympics in 1976 and 1984. Moses won 107 straight finals (122 consecutive races) between 1977 and 1987, setting the world record four times. His overall winning percentage of 95.7 is the highest of any man who has competed in more than one Olympic event.
He was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but grew up in West Chester, a suburb of Philadelphia. He attended Archbishop Wood Catholic High School in West Chester before going on to Yale University, where he ran for the Yale Bulldogs track team. At Yale, he became only the third man in history to win the NCAA Men's Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championship in both the 110 meter hurdles and the 400 meter dash. He did so in 1975 and '76. He also won the Indoor National Championships in 1978 and 1979.
After graduating from Yale with a degree in economics, Moses turned down an opportunity to compete for the United States in the 1980 Moscow Olympics to focus on his marriage. He married his high school sweetheart, Susan Schroth, and had two children with her: a daughter, Emma, and a son, Edwin Jr.
In 1989, Susan Moses filed for divorce after 14 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. The divorce was granted that same year.
