Hi, my name is Elan Oumarov and I am a graduating senior at Brooklyn Technical High School, as well as the captain of the MatchPoint NYC Swimming Team. I will be attending the Stern School of Business at New York University in the fall, where I plan to continue my swimming career. Although I swim breast stroke on occasion, I am mainly a butterflyer and hold both the 100 and 200 yard MatchPoint records, as well as a spot as the flyer in MatchPoint’s 400 and 200 medley relays.
My experience at MatchPoint has changed my perspective on the sport of swimming. Although this is partly due to the amazing swimmers I get to call my teammates, it is mostly the work of our amazing coach Konstantin Petrov, who I have had the pleasure of working alongside for over three years now. He is one of the most caring and talented individuals I have ever met in the swimming community, and I consider myself lucky to have been elected captain under his supervision.
While I am excited to start a new chapter of my life in college, I will always remember my time at MatchPoint and will surely stop by for some more of Kostya’s famous fly sets.
