Olympians at Alumni Social make dream come true for Make a Wish recipient
Olympic Champion and Cal Golden Bear Nathan Adrian headlined our Alumni Social at the 2015 Men's NCAA DI Swimming And Diving Championships. 1996 Olympic gold medalist Ashley Whitney brought her special friend, Afton Wallace, who while battling cancer, was a bright light at the social sharing her own unique swimming experiences with the group. It was Afton's Make a Wish Foundation choice to meet her swimming heroes. Thank you to all who participated in this event.


1996 Olympic gold medalist Ryan Berube gave the keynote presentation at the USA Swimming Foundation's first Make a Splash Regional Summit March 11th in Dallas, Texas.  The Summit included information on marketing best practices, establishing partnerships, incorporation and utilization of volunteers.

In Ryan's inspirational keynote, he shared how the life skills he gained through swimming have been a true strength in his personal life, as well as his professional career as a wealth manager for Credit Suisse.

Thank you Ryan for your gift of time at the USA Swimming Foundation's Make a Splash Regional Summit!

At the 2015 Adult Performance Camp you can re-live the life of a National Team athlete at the OTC's state-of-the-art facility. The real value is the attention you get from Olympic coaches. It's a true camp experience, getting filmed and learning new techniques the present National Team athletes use to swim so fast.

Betty Mullen Brey
1956 Olympian Betty Mullen Brey passed away on Saturday March 25th just hours before her son  took to the court to coach the Notre Dame Irish in the NCAA basketball tournament.
Betty made the 1956 Olympic team in the 400 freestyle relay and competed in the prelims of that event in Melbourne. She won relay gold at the 1951 and 1955 Pan American Games, silver in the 200 free at the 1951 Games and silver in the 100 fly at the 1955 Games.  Mike Brey's Irish beat Butler 67-64 to earn a place in the NCAA Sweet 16 Saturday night, a game that will forever remain a tribute to his mother.
