With multiple World Records under her belt, Olympic Speaker Kate Ziegler has become internationally recognized as a dominant force in female swimming. Most athletes can only dream of competing at the same level as their idol, but Kate Ziegler found a way to better hers. In June 2007, Kate Ziegler shattered the longest standing swimming world record set by Janet Evans almost 20 years earlier in the 1500m Freestyle. Kate’s time of 15:42.54 was nearly 10 seconds off Janet Evans’ previous world record. However, it was not the first time Kate had broken a long standing record. At the 2005 FINA World Cup stop in New York, she broke Sippy Woodhead’s 25 year old US Record in the 800m Freestyle which at the time was the longest standing American Record.
Also the World Record holder in the 800m and 1500m short course events Kate has developed into a dominant force for the US Team in both distance events. She broke onto the scene winning Gold Medals in both the 800m and 1500m freestyle events at the 2005 World Championships and repeating at the 2007 World Championships with victories in the same events.
She earned a gold medal in the 800m freestyle, and a silver medal in the 1500m freestyle at the 2010 MOO Pan Pacific Championships. Solidifying her place as one of the top distance swimmers in the world, Kate Ziegler earned a silver medal in the 1500m freestyle and a bronze medal in the 800m freestyle at the 2011 Fina World Championships in Shanghai. In 2012, Kate participated in the London Summer Olympics as a member of the U.S. Women’s Swimming team. Although her performance in the Olympics was disappointing, Kate did not let this deter her spirit as she went on to graduate at the top of her class from Chapman University. She now uses her experience and enthusiasm to give keynote speeches in order to motivate and influence others. Kate Ziegler is available for sporting events, endorsements, and personal appearances.
