Wayzata High School Swim Coach Wins Bronze Medal in Rio
David Plummer made it in the history books last night in Rio at the Summer Olympics by capturing the Bronze Medal in the 100 Meter Backstroke at the age of 30, which made home the oldest swimming competitor in this years games.
Plummer originally from Oklahoma City was a standout swimmer at The University of Minnesota and was a 14X All American. Plummer now is a swim coach for the Wayzata Minnesota High School team, and by the analysis during the race last night was not seen as much of a contender due to his age, let alone to win a medal.
Having swam competitively myself for 6 years when I was a kid this is the one Olympic event I can't miss. Everyone knows Michel Phelps and all his amazing achievements, but when you see someone deemed as an underdog in the competition do something huge, that is amazing!
This was Plummer's first appearance at The Olympics and he will compete in the 4x100 Relay event on Friday. Go get 'em David!
