Awesome leader and journalist. Very fond memories.

Nick was a great man and his contribution to the sport can not be properly expressed in words. He was a dear friend to many and has left a void in many of our lives. You are missed my friend, but your legacy is a great one which will never disappear

Marc

Our next door neighbor in Toronto and friend for thirty years. Nick is greatly missed.

I am only a swimming fan, but I constantly used his swimrankings since 1996, so I am greatly indebted to him.
R.I.P Nick!
