Summer SANDERS biography

Summer Sanders first came to international attention in 1989 when she won a silver medal in the 200 IM at the Pan Pacific Championship. In 1991 she won three gold medals at the Pan Pacs, in the 200 butterfly and both IMs. She also won three medals that year at the World Championships with a 200 fly gold medal, silver in the 200 IM, and bronze in the 400 IM. At the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, Sanders won two golds and four medals, winning the 200 fly and on the medley relay, with silver in the 200 IM, and bronze in the 400 IM. Sanders swam at Stanford where she won nine NCAA championships, with six individual titles, two each in the 200 yd fly, the 200 IM, and the 400 IM. She won eight US Championships.

After the 1992 Barcelona Olympics Sanders became a television personality, working as a swimming commentator, but also hosting “NBA Inside Stuff” for eight years alongside Ahmad Rashad. She served as a correspondent and host on numerous television programs. In 2009 Sanders started hosting “Inside Out with Summer Sanders,” a show on Universal Sports. She also appeared on “Celebrity Apprentice” hosted by future US President Donald Trump.

Sanders was married for four years to American Olympic swimmer Mark Henderson, but they divorced and she later married Erik Schlopy, also an Olympian as an Alpine skier.
