Colet replaces ‘Chava’ Gómez as the men’s coach

Club Natació Sabadell has officially announced Quim Colet as the new coach of Club Natació Sabadell’s senior team. Colet has cancelled his three-month stay in the USA and will be flying back to Barcelona next week. He will remain as the BIWPA Academy’s Sports Director.

CN Sabadell is one of the most important teams in Spain’s Honor Division and it is also one of the Catalan sports organizations with more members -roughly 25.000. The club played the LEN Champions League preliminary round last term. The signs of fatigue in the current cicle and a bad start to the new season have triggered the arrival of a new coach.

Quim Colet has played an important role in establishing the foundations of the current water polo system in Spain, which has become a model of success. Until 2016, he was the technical director of the Catalan Swimming Federation. Quim has already been in charge of Spanish water polo teams in the Honor Division, coaching CN Barcelona, CN Atlètic-Barceloneta and CE Mediterrani, among others.

He has also been part of the technical staff of the senior men’s national team of Spain for many years, having participated in two Olympic Games. Additionally, he was the coach of the Spanish men’s junior national team, clinching three medals in World Championships, one of which, a gold medal in Los Angeles 91′.
