Natalie Coughlin Profile

Natalie Coughlin has positioned herself as one of the most exciting and marketable athletes in today’s world, as well as one of the most talented swimmers in history. Twelve-time Olympic medalist, she combines power, speed, and beauty.

Coughlin started swimming when she was 10-months-old. While in high school, she was a favorite for the 2000 Olympic team; however an untimely shoulder injury held back her performance and she failed to qualify in the trials. Focused on swimming as a means to pay for university, she underwent physical therapy and continued competing. While on a scholarship at U.C. Berkley, Coughlin worked with coach Teri McKeever who introduced her to a more effective holistic style of training. Coughlin regained her focus and ambition; within her first year at Berkley she won five national titles, broke two American collegiate records, and seized the 2001 World Championship title in the backstroke.

Currently, Coughlin is competing and training with her eyes on the 2016 Olympics. Her total of twelve Olympic medals tie her with Jenny Thompson and Dara Torres for the most all-time number of Olympic medals won by an American woman.
