Misty Hyman

Olympic gold medalist Misty Hyman won a stunning upset victory at the 2000 Sydney games when she came from behind to break the American record and win the 200-meter butterfly. Within seconds, she also won the hearts of millions with her contagious smile and warm personality. Recognized as a pioneer in the sport for her innovative underwater dolphin kick, Misty won 13 US and five NCAA national titles.

 

After suffering with asthma and bouts of pneumonia as a young child, Misty turned to swimming at the age of five to help strengthen her lungs. As Misty’s lungs healed and her health was restored, she discovered a passion for the sport. One of the greatest swimmers in Arizona high school history, Misty set three national records at State Championship meets while earning a perfect 4.0 GPA. Misty’s athletic and academic success continued at Stanford where she won the gold medal in her junior year and became a 28-time All-American. After turning down numerous endorsement opportunities in favor of continuing her academic pursuits and swimming collegiately, Misty received her Stanford degree and followed it with an MBA.

 

Misty is recognized as one of the most inspirational athletes of our time and is highly sought for her coaching and motivational speaking skills.

On behalf of the Scranton Sea Knights swimmers, coaches and parents I would like to thank Josh Davis & Josh Schnieder for an excellent clinic. It was such an honor to have you both at our pool. The kids can’t wait to get back in the water and put all your tips to work. As a parent it is so nice to see and hear elite athletes inspire our children to be the best they can be, with hard work anything is possible. Josh Davis is such a gifted man, you can’t help but be positive when you hear him speak, it’s contagious. Every child left with a huge smile. It was as if it was everyone’s birthday. As for Josh Schnieder, we all felt he did a great job with the kids & his interview. He spoke to them on their level, what a role model! Thanks again, It was awesome.
