Annual Awards Banquet Guest Speaker

Josh Davis

Despite a late start into the sport of swimming, Josh Davis made history by becoming the only man to win 3 Gold Medals at the 1996 Atlanta Centennial Olympic Games.   Four years later as Captain of the 2000 Sydney Olympic Team Josh broke the American Record 3 times in his signature event the 200m freestyle.  For 21 years now, Josh has lead a nation-wide tour of Olympic swimmers called the BREAKout! Swim Clinic Tour.  He speaks to groups all over the country on how perseverance, pursuing excellence and positive attitude can turn the ordinary into extra-ordinary. 
 
Still practicing what he preaches Josh just recently became the fastest man ever over 40 years old as he set National Records in the 50, 100, 200 and 500 Freestyle.  Josh Davis lives in Edmond, OK with his wife and 6 growing kids.
