Gary Jr. HALL biography

Although Gary Hall’s three Olympic medals came in the butterfly he was, without doubt, at his absolute best in the IM. A graduate of Indiana, Hall set 10 world records, of which eight were set in IM events and one each in the fly and backstroke, and he was the first man to break four minutes for the 400m IM. He won 23 AAU and seven NCAA championships and posted 23 U.S. records. Hall carried the U.S. flag at the 1976 opening ceremonies. He was by then a medical student at the University of Cincinnati and today is a practicing ophthalmologist. His son, Gary Hall, Jr., became one of the world’s great swim sprinters in the late 90s. Gary Hall, Sr., is the son-in-law of Charles Keating, Jr. NCAA swimming champion in 1946, who was convicted (later overturned) in the savings and loans scandal of the 1990s.
