Jordan Willimovsky: Open Water and Pool, Two-Sport Olympian, Episode #113

Hard work can often make up for a deficit of time, or even raw talent.

Jordan Wilimovsky is a world-renowned distance swimmer for both open water and the 1500 meters freestyle, in the pool. In 2016, Jordan became the first American to qualify for the Olympic Games in two separate swimming sports -- the 10K open water and the 1500 meter pool swim. Representing the U.S., Jordan had an outstanding performance at the 2016 Olympic Games finishing just outside of the medals, in 4th place. Jordan has already qualified for the current 2021 US Olympic Team in the 10K open water event. And when the U.S. holds its Olympic trials this June, Jordan will again try to make history by making the Olympic team as a two-swim-sport athlete. Jordan is a member of the CG Sports Network.
