Want to see more on Coach Durden


Over the past eight years, our men’s swimming program at the University of California, Berkeley has been one of the premiere training grounds for collegiate and international success in the world. During that time, our program has won three NCAA team titles, set numerous NCAA individual and relay records, and has never finished lower than 2nd at our NCAA championship meet.

From an international perspective, Cal men swimmers have won 14 Olympic medals in the past two Olympic cycles, come home with numerous World Championship medals, and continue to impact the United States Swimming National Team roster.

Our one consistent, secret weapon during that time that helps us from training cycle to training cycle, from one major meet to the next, and that is a part of our environment, culture, and ethos on a day-to-day basis is Vitargo.

As we have continued to explore and evolve in every aspect of swim training, mental preparation, race tactics, and swimsuit technology, the one constant for our program when it comes to same day recovery is Vitargo. We have traveled the world going from meet to meet, and Vitargo has made the trek with us every single time.

Whether it is a 14-event race schedule at a three-day NCAA championship or the grueling 8-day meet at our Olympic Trials, Vitargo is the product we rely on to provide recovery nutrition for our athletes both pre- and post-racing. Our program would not have the success we are currently enjoying without the support of the Vitargo family and their products fueling our athletes. We look forward to our continued relationship and product usage as we begin our preparation for the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020.
