Adam van Koeverden on Alexandre Despatie:
I first met Alex at the 2004 Olympics in Athens. I was 22 and he was 19. Despite being a little older than Alex, I felt like I was meeting a steely veteran. He was already a multiple-time World and Commonwealth Games champion, a household name in Canada, and he seemed to be wise beyond his years. Our first encounter was just a high five or something at the Closing Ceremony in Athens, but in the coming weeks as we attended post-Olympic events back in Canada, I got to know a guy who was thoughtful, intelligent and a lot of fun to hang out with. Sure, I’ve taken my last strokes and Alex has moved on from diving, but every time I run into him it’s like I’m seeing my brother, someone that I looked up to and admired in 2004, and always will.
