Team USA Water Polo Goalkeeper

 Ashleigh Johnson Biography

As the first Black goalkeeper to play on the USA Olympic women's team, Ashleigh Johnson is making waves in deep waters. At the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Johnson helped her team take home the gold, becoming the first African American to win gold in the sport. "She plays the position of goalie unlike anyone who's ever played this position before," said Adam Krikorian, coach of the USA women's water polo senior national team. The Florida native has stood apart from the competition, stacking title after title since her days competing at Princeton, where she was the all-time career saves leader.

The 6-foot, 1-inch athlete is changing what the predominantly white sport looks like and challenging the misconception that swimming is a white sport. When Johnson was told as a youth that "Black people don't swim," it was the byproduct of swimming pool discrimination that has existed for years, and yet she pressed on. Johnson is set to compete at the now-2021 Tokyo Olympics next summer, after the pandemic forced the postponement of the 2020 Games. With this added time, Johnson is seizing the moment to push herself to new limits, set goals and prioritize mental health.
