“I didn’t know we could get a candidate that is this exceptional” – Bob Bowman
Hyman is an Olympic Gold Medalist and former world record holder. Months after missing the Olympic Team in 1996, she went on to break the World Record in the 100 butterfly. Four years later, she qualified for the US Olympic Team and won a gold medal in the 200 meter fly.
As a college swimmer at Stanford, she twice received the Honda Sports Award for Swimming and Diving, recognizing her as the outstanding college female swimmer of the year in 1997–98 and again in 2000–01.
