United States Olympic gold medalist Breeja Larson was born on April 16, 1992 in Mesa, Arizona to parents Kjell and Marni. The breaststroker comes from a large family–Larson has six sisters. She lettered in three sports at Mountain View High School –softball, track and field, and swimming–but didn’t commit seriously to swimming until age 17. 2012 was a very good year for Larson. At the US Olympic Trails she won the 100 breast, beating Olympian Rebecca Soni. Larson earned her Olympic gold medal as part of the United States’ 400 medley relay team. She was also sixth in the 100 breast.
