It is with great sadness we inform that Clive Rushton, GAF’s first Technical Director, lost his battle with cancer and passed away on June 12, 2017. Clive was instrumental in providing GAF with a global outlook to its coaches and swimmers. Our centers in Mumbai and Delhi greatly benefitted under his mentorship. He was a source of energy for the entire team and was greatly respected by all of us at GAF. Clive’s contribution to GAF will be fondly remembered. We stand with his family during this difficult period and we pray that his soul rest in peace.
