She and Roland were coming to Los Angeles on vacation, and Daniela wanted to surprise her husband with a get-together. I jumped at the chance, and we nostalgically planned to go swimming in a nearby Olympic-sized pool. In Pasadena, he looked the same as I remembered, stylish, handsome, humble and graceful in the water. He had the same elegant mastery of his stroke, and his kick was still powerful, though he politely refused the opportunity to race.
He had nothing to prove. His wife was his interpreter, though I could tell that Roland understood much of what was being said. He smiled at my jokes and nodded frequently, often with a thumbs-up sign. Dani was a charmer, herself a competitive fencer and a friendly and outgoing extrovert. She was the perfect vehicle to bring him out of his shell. John Naber and Roland Matthes sharing a bite during a visit between the two backstroke legends and friends.
Afterwards, they came by the house, and he willingly signed my personal Olympic flag, and we found ourselves on my living room couch, watching the Olympic swimming finals on television. Backstroke rules have changed a lot since the s. Backstrokers now benefit from freestyle flip-turns and plastic wedges lowered into the pool to secure their feet for the slippery starts.
Give them all fins? Roland and Dani were gracious enough to spend two more evenings with Tribute To Roland, where two other Olympic swimmers, Bruce Furniss and Andrew Strenk were able to join our conversations.
Strenk speaks fluent German and he was able to open the discussion into difficult or intricate subjects. It was there that Roland explained how he had always been aware that the state was watching his every move, which prevented him from being as open as he wished.
He also admitted that the thought of defecting in the United States had indeed crossed his mind, but he did not want his family abused as a result. He patiently listened to US Olympic swimmer, Shirley Babashoff Tribute To Roland, as she spoke about her opinion of his East German teammates and his ex-wife, Kornelia Enderand their state-sponsored cheating. Though my wife and I were able to revisit Roland and Dani in Europe a year later, I consider their visit to California and that time on my couch as one of my most precious post-swimming experiences.
The man who molded my career, the man I did not merely want to emulate but wanted to be, had become a dear friend, and in spite of our language and geographical and political distance, he was considering us as equals. I know that some swimmers may eventually match his records, but no one will ever take his place. My sincere sympathies go to Dani and my thanks for the fact that she brought us together one more time. Fantastic, beautiful piece.
Love the detail. Best, best….!!!! Great and well written story Tribute To Roland. Roland sometimes was unfairly accused of wrongdoing because he was from the DDR and married to Kornelia Ender. But I think most swimmers from that era never thought once that he was cheating. From that era, he was one of the best swimmers in the world and was a role model for swimming. He will always be remembered.
Such wonderful words from a wonderful man. I read great things about the rivalry between Roland and John and am so glad they became great friends. This is a wonderful, touching tribute from one of my idols in the sport…who in turn, had HIS idol in Matthes. My Captain, My Captain; John, so thrilling, and sad, to read, hear and re-experience our lives through your words.
My condolences to the Matthes family and yours. Those of us who are a Fish understand all. Every word, every nuance, Tribute To Roland, every gracious moment, and every feeling you shared. And more. You walk by and I see your still then mustache. I say hi John!
