Georgia Tech Swimming Names Stefanski, Qu As Assistant Coaches

Eric Stefanski comes from UNC, Qu promoted from part-time assistant

Yun Qu joined the Georgia Tech swimming & diving staff as a part-time assistant coach for the 2012-13 season, and was promoted to a full-time assistant coach for 2013-14. She will coach the Yellow Jackets' distance swimmers.

Qu is no stranger to the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center, having competed in the venue for her native China at the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympic Games and finishing fourth in the 200m fly.

"I am very excited to have a female of Yun's caliber join our staff," said Hart. "She did a tremendous job for us in her first year as a part-time coach and immediately earned the respect of our student-athletes. Her Olympic training background shows in her dedication to the sport. She is very technically minded and will be a huge asset to our program."

In the 1994 World Championships in Rome, she was the silver-medalist in both the 100m and 200m butterfly, a year after ranking No. 1 in the world and setting an Asian record in the 200m fly (2:08.53), and ranking No. 2 in the world in the 100m fly (59.27).

Qu came to Georgia Tech after five years as the associate head men's and women's swimming coach at SUNY-Binghamton. Her previous coaching stints have included Iowa State for two seasons, and Ithaca College for one.

She attended Shenzhen University in Shenzhen, China for two years, and then enrolled at SUNY-Binghamton where she graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2005 with a B.S. degree in human development. Qu received her M.S. in exercise science from Ithaca in 2006.
