Angela Maurer realized her childhood dream of becoming an Olympian…twice. She admitted that her race in London in Hyde Park was her optimal race – she could not swim one bit faster. That is only one small example of what the multiple world champion has accomplished during her lengthy career.

* training long hours for her longer marathon swimming careers, especially focusing on her nutrition, after she became a mother
* remembering the moment when the Olympic 10K Marathon Swim was accepted by the International Olympic Committee
* appearing in Playboy as a 37-year-old before the 2012 London Olympic Games competing in the Serpentine
* racing tactically in a 25 km competition
* unexpectedly winning a FINA World Cup race in rough conditions in Mexico at the age of 38, beating Hungarian Anna Olasz
