(CP PHOTO/COA/Mike Ridewood) Curtis Myden du Canada célèbre sa médaille d'or en natation aux Jeux olympiques d'Atlanta de 1996. (PC Photo/AOC) Born December 31, 1973 in Calgary, Alberta, it was in Bahamas' clear blue salt-waters that Curtis first discovered his love for the sport. At age 7, following his father's transfer back to Canada, Curtis joined Calgary's Cascade Swim Club. At 16, he joined the University of Calgary Swim Club to be coached by International Swimming Hall of Fame inductee Deryk Snelling. Curtis spent 12 years on the National team but first emerged on the international scene in 1990, qualifying in the 400 IM for the World Aquatic Championships. His first Olympic experience was at the 1992 Games in Barcelona at age 19. He finished 10th in the 400 IM and 25th in the 100m breast. Witnessing Mark Tewksbury's gold medal performance inspired Curtis and directed him in the right path towards glory. He pursued his Olympic journey winning 2 bronze medals at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games in 200 and 400 IM and another bronze at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games in the 400 IM where he also set a new Commonwealth record (4:15.33) . He was 6th at the 200 IM that year. Curtis is remembered as the first Canadian swimming Olympian to win medals in consecutive Games (1996 and 2000), a Commonwealth record holder in the 400 IM (2000 Olympics), a 30 time National champion and as the Canadian record holder in both short and long course 200 and 400 IM's. He was named Swimming Canada's Male Athlete of the Year in 1994-1997, 1999 and 2000. He was also the 1996 recipient of the Howard Mackie Award, CIAU Athlete of the year and 4-time CIAU Academic All-Canadian Athlete. Curtis decided to pass on the 1998 Commonwealth Games to concentrate on his Bachelor of Science degree from the Faculty of Kinesiology at the University of Calgary. He graduated in 1999 with a specialization in exercise and health physiology. He became a spokesperson for the Paralympic Games and Operation Red Nose in Calgary. Moments after the official announcement of his retirement, Curtis became the first ever inductee into the newly created Swimming Canada Circle of Excellence in 2002.

Curtis Myden
2011 Hall of Fame Inductee: Curtis Myden 2011 Hall of Fame Inductee: Curtis Myden Renowned for his steely determination and tremendous work ethic, Curtis Myden is one of Canada's greatest swimmers. The three-time Olympian and triple Olympic medallist has set records and shone for Canada in a sport with a very high level of global competition. Born in Calgary, Myden lived for a while with his family in the Caribbean. There, in the warm water of the Bahamas, Myden discovered that which would guide him through the next three decades. At age seven, he and his family returned to Canada where Myden promptly joined Calgary's Cascade Swim Club. Fast forward to age 16, and Myden entered the University of Calgary Swim Club, under the coaching guidance of Deryk Snelling. Three years later, Myden qualified for his first Olympic Games. In 1992, Myden finished 25th in the 100-metre breaststroke and 10th in the 400-metre individual medley. There in Barcelona he watched teammate Mark Tewksbury win gold - a performance that served as motivation. At the Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games, Myden made his biggest splash. He captured two bronze medals in the 200- and 400-metre individual medley. Four years later the national team leader won his third bronze medal, this one in the 400-metre individual medley. This medal came amid a deep pool of swimmers. With that third-place finish in Sydney in 2000, Myden became the first Canadian swimmer to win medals at consecutive Olympic Games. He also set a Commonwealth record in the 400-metre event at the Sydney Games. Leading up to this moment, he had broken his own Canadian record at the 1999 Pan American Games, winning all individual medley gold medals, as well as winning two silver medals at the Pan Pacific Championships. Myden is a 30-time national champion and Canadian record holder in both short and long course 200- and 400-metre individual medleys. He was Swimming Canada's Male Athlete of the Year from 1994-1997 and 1999-2000. From 1994-2000, he was Alberta's Male Swimmer of the Year. In 2002, Myden was the first person to be inducted in the newly created Swimming Canada Circle of Excellence. In 2006 the University of Calgary selected him as the "Graduate of the Last Decade" and the following year he was inducted in the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame. Myden said that his career in swimming and the lessons he learned in the pool prepared him for his career in medicine, where he specializes in orthopedics. A 2006 graduate from the University of Calgary, Myden is nearing the end of his five-year orthopedic surgeon residency training program.
