LifeWave Donates to support US Olympic Swimmers

LifeWave, in honor of the late Coach Richard Quick – six-time US Olympic swim coach and valued LifeWave staff member, is proud to donate $10,000 to help SwimMAC Medalist Club achieve its mission of supporting US Olympic Swimmers.

Coach Quick was the first Olympic coach to recommend LifeWave patches to his athletes, urging swimmers to wear Energy Enhancer patches at the 2004 Olympic trials and Olympic games, generating a great amount of publicity and ultimately propelling LifeWave into the spotlight on a national level. Coach Quick’s support was immensely instrumental to LifeWave’s early growth and development. When he retired as a coach, Coach Quick joined LifeWave as the Director of Athletics.

LifeWave Founder & CEO David Schmidt said,

“We are honored to make this contribution on behalf of Coach Quick, and to continue the tradition he established at LifeWave of helping athletes reach their full potential”

The SwimMAC Medalist Club is the funding arm of SwimMAC Team Elite, a group of competitive US swimmers dedicated to their 2012 London Olympics dreams. Team Elite trains under the leadership of two-time Olympic and 12-time NCAA Champion David Marsh, mentored under Coach Quick for 30 years.

According to the SwimMAC Medalist Club, it costs about $30,000 per year to house, feed and train an aspiring Olympic swimmer. Donations are essential to funding these resources for our future Olympians. If you would like to make a contribution to SwimMAC Medalist Club, please visit
