About Malmsten Inc.
From swimmers by swimmers…
Malmsten Inc. established in Phoenix Arizona, in 2020, by former swimmers Mikael Orn and Simon Percy.
Mikael and Simon both swam for Arizona State under Ron Johnson. Two different career paths and now teaming up in Malmsten Inc.
Mikael was one of Tommy Malmsten´s most successful swimmers and swam for Arizona State under Ron Johnson 1980 – 1984. NCAA Champion 1983 in 200 yards freestyle and bronze medallist in the 1984 Olympic Games.
Simon swam for the New Zealand National Team from 1980 to 1994 including the 1990 Commonwealth Games, 1991 World Championships and 1992 Barcelona Olympics. Simon swam for ASU from 1991 to 1994, representing the university at the NCAA and becoming an All American and Academic All American. Graduating in 1994 with a Bachelor of Science.
Since 1994, aside from his business career, Simon has coached swimming, including a return to Arizona State as an Assistant coach from 2006 to 2011. During the 2008 financial crisis, which forced ASU to cut the men’s swimming program, Simon teamed up with Mikael Orn, and other Alumni, securing funds to assure the future of Men’s Swimming at ASU, which thrives today under head coach Bob Bowman. A unique achievement in the Swimming community.
