Tharon Drake

Assistant Coach
Alma Mater: E. New Mexico
Office Phone: (704) 637-4762


Tharon Drake joined the Catawba College Swimming Program as an assistant coach in April of 2018. He comes to Catawba from the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. He is a current member of Team USA and the United States Paralympic National Team.

Drake, who competes in the S11 classification for blind swimmers, holds 13 current American Records. He won silver medals in the 400 freestyle and the 100 breast at the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games. At the 2017 World Para Swimming Championships in Mexico City, Drake took gold in the 400 free and the 100 breast. He grabbed a silver in the 200 individual medley.

A native of Hobbs, N.M., Drake is excited to join the program to be able to introduce a new way to view swimming. He has an extraordinary ability to use his hearing to provide technical stroke feedback and split times much like any other coach.
