Bio: A swimming talent since a young age, Leverenz just missed out on the 2008 Beijing Olympics at age 17, placing third in the 200m breaststroke at Olympic Trials. But midway through her college career at Cal, Leverenz had a fantastic year in 2012: winning bronze in the 200m IM at the London Games with a personal best, while finishing 6th in the 400m IM. This year, Leverenz won gold in both Pan Am Games IM events and pulled off the same double at 2015 Nationals rounding her back into top form as the Olympics in Rio approach. She continues to train at Cal Berkeley. Enjoys doing yoga for dryland core workouts and breathing.
