Megan Jendrick



Megan Jendrick (born Megan Quann on January 15, 1984 in Tacoma, Washington) is an American swimmer. She won two gold medals at the 2000 Summer Olympics. Jendrick has set 26 American records and one World record in her swimming career up to date. She is a ten-time National champion and nine-time US Open champion.

Jendrick was the star of the 2005 World University Games in ─░zmir, Turkey, winning three gold medals and setting two Universiade records. She was the second woman to ever swim the 100 yard breaststroke under 1:00 and is also only the second woman (there have only been two, including herself) in history to swim 100-yards breaststroke in under 59 seconds (58.87).

She graduated from Emerald Ridge High School in Puyallup, Washington. In December 2004, Jendrick married her high-school sweetheart, American author Nathan Jendrick.

Jendrick is still often listed as Quann or Quann-Jendrick but she has said that her legal and professional name is Megan Jendrick only, and that the hyphenated version is not correct.

Jendrick is the 2006 recipient of the Henry P. Iba Citizen Athlete Award, and was nominated that same year for a Golden Goggle Award, the highest honor outside of swimming an American aquatic athlete may receive.Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation; with no Invariant Sections, with no Front-Cover Texts, and with no Back-Cover Texts.
