USA Swimming Olympic Roster 2016: Meet the Team for Rio

Kathleen Baker


Event: Women's 100m Back


Baker has come a long way since finishing 14th in the 100m backstroke at the 2012 Olympic trials. Of course, that was expected, as she was just 15 when that happened, and now, as a 19-year-old, she looks set to become one of the United States' next stars. She and Smoliga will enter Rio with high expectations, as Natalie Coughlin and Missy Franklin (who finished eighth and seventh, respectively, in trials) have combined to win the last three Olympic golds in the 100m backstroke.
