Open Water Swimmer In Orange Seeks Gold

Open Water Swimmer In Orange Seeks Gold

Bette Marston of Sports Illustrated knows a future star when she interviews one.

With his Olympic spot guaranteed, Alex Meyer is getting some well-earned publicity in the United States. Plus, with the most powerful agent in aquatics at his side, Peter Carlisle, and NBC getting ready to make its pre-Olympic push, Alex will be positioned as the new face of elite open water swimming in America. His cool demeanor, his intellectual approach to the sport, his humble nature and his hard-working attitude are symbolic of athletic role models.

Plus his sweet-looking orange-tinted goggles help make him stand-out in any pack.
