Natalie Coughlin Going Strong Towards Rio

“Being an athlete is such a wonderful job. I’m 32 and most of my friends have job where they’re stuck in an office all day and I get to workout, you know, really really hard. I get to push my body every single day, focus on my health, I get to see the sunrise and be outside in the fresh air. I get to travel the world and represent my country. I feel so blessed to call this my job.”
