Anthony Ervin is one of the most electrifying swimmers in the sport. After winning a gold medal in the 2000 Olympic Games, Ervin retired from the sport for eight years. With less than a year of training, he placed 5th in the 50m Freestyle at the 2012 London Olympics and has his sights set on returning to the top of the podium once more in Rio de Janeiro (2016). Ervin is easily recognizable by his signature sleeves of tattoos, which are reminders from his time away from the pool. His more cerebral approach to racing is a testament to his experiences and to his unwavering focus to swim faster than anyone else on the planet.
