Jessica Hardy Meichtry is an Olympic Gold Medalist in swimming and a multiple World Record holder. Making her first national team at age 18 in 2005, she went on to continue being amongst the best in the world for over a decade.
She won over twenty-eight international medals, the highlight being her gold and bronze medals from the 2012 London Olympic Games. She competed at UC Berkeley for two years, winning four NCAA titles, before “going pro,” and ultimately finishing her bachelors degree in Communications from Arizona State University.
She was elected team captain of the U.S. National team in 2013, 2014 and 2015, which she credits as the accomplishment she is most proud of during her career.
Jessica’s last competitive race was at the Olympic Trials in 2016, where she was competing with significant injuries and did not make the Olympic team. She was excited to take a step back from the sport to spend more time with her husband, Dominik Meichtry (fellow Olympian, competed in the 2004, 2008, and 2016 Games), and now, her daughter Olivia (born March 2018).
Jessica joins the BSN Sports team as the Swimming Brand Ambassador, is eager to learn, and to help this emerging sport continue to grow.
