Bio: One of the most dominant distance swimmers in the U.S. the past few years, Jaeger is ready for his time in Rio. Two individual medals at the past two World Championships have signaled his arrival onto the big stage, while setting the U.S. record in the 1500m this past year puts him among the all-time greats in U.S. swimming. His 6th place finish in London is especially impressive, considering that Jaeger had only swum the 1500m distance a handful of times after the first time in Fall 2011. A 2014 graduate of the University of Michigan, Jaeger works with coach Mike Bottom and has been featured in SwimOutlet’s “What’s In Your Bag?” feature.
