Anthony Ervin (Anniversary Month Rewind)
Jay’s Note: It was impressive enough to win a Gold Medal at the 2000 Summer Olympics, but to retire from the sport in 2003, and then years later come back and qualify for the 2012 Olympics was remarkable!
Anthony’s swimming journey continues! He recently won 2 Golds at the SC World Championships, as well as breaking the American record in the 50m freestyle at the World Cup. :)
