JASON LEZAK is one of the most talented sprinters in history. At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, he anchored both the 400 Medley and 400 Freestyle Relays for Team USA, capturing two gold medals and two world records in the process. His anchor leg in the 400 Freestyle Relay was one of the most electrifying come-from-behind relay swims (and fastest 100 relay split -- 46.06) of all time. Jason, who started swimming at age 5, did not become an elite-level sprinter until age 25. He is a 7-time US National Champion and former American record holder in the 100 LCM Freestyle. Jason has represented the USA at three Olympics (2000, 2004, 2008), earning 6 medals in relay events (including 4 gold medals), as well as an individual bronze medal in the 100 free in 2008. He lives and trains in California.
