“Zenon was my coach when I was part of the rowing team at UCLA during my undergraduate studies. Under his coaching, UCLA’s varsity team achieved an unrepresented record with wins and medals both in the West Coast and National Intercollegiate Championships.
“Zenon’s “secret” was not only the thorough knowledge of the skills of rowing and physical training, but also the ability to create a competitive environment within our team where success was inevitable.
“Following my graduation, the mental edge that Zenon had instilled in me helped me continue my rowing career in the Greek National Team.
“I value the lessons, both at the physical and psychological levels, I received from Zenon and I am grateful for his influence during the formative years of my personality.”
