About

Haley Anderson's road from swimming in lakes for fun in northern California to just missing out on a gold medal by 4 tenths of a second at the 2012 London Olympics was filled years of hard work punctuated with infectious joy and humble appreciation for all her opportunities. With a permanent smile on her expressive face, Anderson stood on the starting pontoon at the Olympics with confidence and boundless joy. Nerves and pressure were not part of the package. She embodies the purity of sport: she prepared well, believed in herself, raced fairly, and enjoyed the competition. With a fundamental sweetness and DNA shaped by a well-grounded swimming family, the Olympic medalist is a role model and the ideal teammate whose escalation to the highest echelon in elite open water swimming was rocket-like. For her silver medal performance on the sport's most pressure-packed stage, for her sense of sportsmanship, for her tremendous growth and improvement throughout this Olympic year.
