Sebastian Moll entered his first swimming competition in 1970 at age 5 and a half. The fact that he came in second in that meet may have something to do with the fact that he is still trying to win races almost 50 years later. He went on to compete in the German Olympic trials in 1980 and 1984 and won a National Championship with his club relay in 1984. Sebastian first joined Red Tide in 1990 as a graduate student at NYU. He rejoined the team in 2014 after a 15 year hiatus from the sport, having rediscovered his love of the water while swimming to rehab a shoulder injury.
