Nicolas Wildhaber was a breaststroke swimmer who competed at the 1948 and 1960 Olympics as a member of SK Basel. It was but a prelude to a career as a sports administrator. Wildhaber coached and directed the SV Limmat Club for 10 years. He then became technical manager and major event coordinator for Genève-Natation.
In 1970 Wildhaber became President of the Swiss Swimming Federation, serving until 1988, when he was named Honorary President. In 1974 he was named to the committee of the European Swimming League (LEN), then was named to its Bureau in 1986. In 1976 Wildhaber was elected to FINA’s swimming committee and in 1992 became the first Swiss member of the Executive Board. In 1996 he left his national and international functions and concentrated on the Plan-les-Ouates club, which he had largely helped to create.
