Gary Hall Jr. - Olympic ChampionGet Tickets
Gary will share his experience as a former Olympian who represented the US in 1996, 2000, and 2004. He holds 10 Olympic medals (five gold, three silver, two bronze). He will talk candidly about swimming competitively as an unexpected Type 1 diabetic and how the diagnosis brought positive change into his life.
Gary is remembered for his pre-race warm ups where he would frequently strut onto the pool deck wearing boxing shorts and robe, shadow boxing and flexing for the audience.
At 29, Hall became the oldest American male Olympic swimmer since 1924. He won the gold medal in the 50m freestyle at that age.
