Verrado Community Center is hosting a motivational talk from Olympic Gold Medalist Misty Hyman this Saturday at Vitras Swim Club at 12 p.m. Verrado residents and non-residents will have the opportunity to hear Hyman’s inspirational story and ask her questions about her Olympic success.
Famous for her impressive win against Australia’s Susie O’Neil, Hyman now motivationally speaks on her Olympic accomplishments. A Phoenix native, Hyman will share her Olympic stories and the hard work it took to reach the top of during her swimming career.

She continued her career in college where she competed on the Stanford University Swim Team winning All American 28 times. She was also named the NCAA Swimmer of the Year in 1998. Over the past 12 years, Hyman has been coaching swimming clinics and sharing tips on her incredible career.
