Welcome Coach Bora
Bora Yatagan comes to us from the College of Charleston, where he served as the head coach. He will be coaching at least one day per week at Danny Jones. He will also be swimming for Palmetto Masters as a member of our team.
Coach Bora came to the College of Charleston from Fairmont State University where he spent three years as the primary assistant coach. He assisted in running practices, organizing weight lifting and dry-land practices, organizing the team's schedule and meets, and running swim software including timing-start systems. During that time, Yatagan was also the head coach of the Fairmont Area Swim Team (FAST). He headed all coaching and directing responsibilities for the FAST Club Team while also implementing effective, forward-thinking promotional and fund-raising activities. Before his arrival at Fairmont State, Yatagan served as a volunteer assistant swimming coach at WVU while he obtained his master's degree.
Athletically, Yatagan placed second in the 50m freestyle and third in the 100m freestyle at the 2003 National Championship in Istanbul, Turkey. Bora is married and has a daughter and newborn son! Welcome to the team!!
