The Beauty of Sport, Part Three: Swimmer Summer Sanders

The calendar says it's spring, but I thought I'd celebrate Summer. :-D

Summer Sanders was one of the most dominant American female swimmers in the early nineties.  In the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, she won medals of each color, four in all; gold in the 200-meter butterfly and the 4x100-meter medley relay, silver in the 200-meter individual medley (IM), and bronze  in the 400-meter IM.

Since leaving competitive swimming, Summer Sanders has appeared on numerous sports programs as a commentator and as a reporter, covering sports other than swimming.  (She co-hosted the basketball show "NBA's Inside Stuff" with Ahmad Rashad, this earning her journalistic credentials like Willow Bay before her by having to appear with a doofus.)
