Jim Ellis has coached competitive swimming in the city of Philadelphia for over forty years. He works as a math teacher for the school district of Philadelphia, but his true passion is swimming. Jim is considered by many to be one of the best coaches in the country. However, he and Brielle often clash when it comes to what he asks of her.
In 2000, The Philadelphia Department of Recreation (PDR) swim team sent five swimmers, including Brielle, to the U.S. Olympic team trials.
"I'm in it, 'till I win it. Brielle did well at Trials
last year, but if she gets her mind right she'll own a world record in 2004."
