The surprise from Suriname – Anthony Nesty – Seoul 1988


“Anthony Nesty was brought up in a country whose population was a little over 350,000 and boasted just one 50-metre swimming pool. The lack of facilities and competition forced him to relocate to the United States where he trained at the University of Florida.”
