At just twelve years old Dana Vollmer began her quest for Olympic success as the youngest swimmer to compete in the 2000 Olympic trials. In 2004, her dream became a reality when she earned her first Olympic gold medal as a member of the 4x200m free relay in Athens. Making history, Dana and her teammates swam fast enough to break the seventeen-year-old world record. In 2012 she was at it again, this time winning three gold medals and setting two world records at the London Olympic Games. It was here that she became the first woman to ever swim the 100m butterfly in under 56 seconds.
Just five months after giving birth to her son, Arlen, Dana returned to the pool, placing fourth in the 100m fly at the 2015 Phillips 66 National Championships. Most recently, she then went on to take home gold in the 100m butterfly at the 2015 AT&T Winter Nationals.
