Fiona Majeau is a freestyle swimmer studying Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University. Majeau is currently in her senior year, and she’s originally from Seattle, Wash. She graduated from Garfield High School as a state champion – where her mother was her coach – and as the high school valedictorian. The swimming gene runs in the Majeau family – her parents actually met as swimmers at the University of Washington and her mother, Karen, was an All-American in the 200 IM. Majeau has always focused on her academics just as much as swimming. In high school she took AP courses in subjects such as Latin and calculus, and also played in her school’s jazz band, which was nationally recognized. She also sings and plays the trumpet – she frequently sung the national anthem at home meets.
As a freshman Majeau swam at the Pac-12 Championships where she finished eighth in the 1,650 freestyle, which helped Stanford win the meet. She also had multiple top-three finishes during the dual meet season.
Majeau came back as a sophomore, and she made the Pac-12 All-Academic First Team. She finished 19th in the 1,650 freestyle, scoring six points for the Cardinal.
In her junior season Majeau repeated as a member of the Pac-12 All-Academic First Team. She finished 20th in the 200 freestyle and the mile at the Pac-12 Championships.
Majeau is currently in her senior season as a Stanford Cardinal. She finished 19th in the mile, and also came in 43rd in the 200 freestyle to complete her swimming career.
As a student at Garfield High School Majeau maintained a 4.0 GPA and also swam the fifth-fastest time in state history in the 200 and 500 freestyle. In 2010 she was the Washington state champion in both the 200 and 500 freestyle, and she helped Garfield to a state championship in 2007 and 2008.
