Excerpt: Alexander ("Alex") "Sasha" Baumann, OC, O.Ont (born April 21, 1964) is a Canadian athlete, who won two gold medals and set two world records in swimming at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles.

The family settled in Sudbury, Ontario, where, at the age of nine, Baumann became involved in competitive swimming, training at Laurentian University. By the time he was seventeen, Baumann owned 38 Canadian swimming records and the world record in the 200-metre individual medley.
