Summer Sanders

Olympic Gold-Medalist & Swimmer; Sports Commentator

 Summer Sanders Biography

Summer Sanders was the most decorated swimmer at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games, winning two gold, one silver, and one bronze medal. Since then, Summer has remained in the spotlight as a primetime TV sports commentator.

In Sanders's first international meet she won a silver medal in the 200 individual medley at the 1989 Pan Pacific Championships. At the 1991 Pan Pacific Championships, she won 400-meter individual medley and the 200-meter butterfly. In 1991, Sanders enrolled at Stanford University to swim under Hall of Fame coach Richard Quick. In her two-year collegiate swimming career, Sanders won eight NCAA National Championship titles. She won back-to-back NCAA Swimmer of the Year titles and helped her team win the 1992 NCAA National Championships.

Sanders won three medals at the 1991 World Championships in Perth, Australia, taking gold in the 200-meter butterfly, silver in the 200-meter individual medley, and bronze in the 400-meter individual medley. She then became the first American woman since Hall of Famer Shirley Babashoff (1976) to qualify for four individual events at one Olympiad at the 1992 Olympic Trials.

At the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona, Spain, Sanders won four Olympic medals — gold in the 200-meter butterfly with an Olympic record time of 2:08.67, gold in the 400-meter medley relay, silver in the 200-meter individual medley, and a bronze medal in the 400-meter individual medley. Sanders has been inducted into the US Swimming Hall of Fame, the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame, and the Stanford Hall of Fame.

Sanders began working on television while still competing. In 1992 and 1994 she was a commentator for CBS Sports for the NCAA Swimming Championships. In 1996, she was a commentator for NBC's coverage of swimming at the Atlanta Olympics. She acted as an Olympic analyst and host for NBC during the 1996, 2000, 2002 and 2010 Olympic Games, being a Today Show special contributor from 2000-2004 and contributed to the network's coverage of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City as an on-site reporter. She was also the host of Scholastic at the Olympic Games on MSNBC in 2000. Since then she has appeared in many programs as correspondent, co-host, and host.
