Eric Shanteau SpeakerOne of the greatest stories of the 2012 Summer Olympics has been a swimmer that flies under the radar. We all know about Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps, but Eric Shanteau may have overcome the most obstacles to get to London. This cancer survivor is a gold medalist and also a motivational speaker. Eric helped set a world record being part of the U.S. 4×100-meter medley relay team Aaron Peirsol, Michael Phelps and David Walters, which won the gold medal in a new world record of 3:27.2.

He is a member of the 2012 United States Olympic team and is competing in the 100-meter breaststroke at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

Shanteau’s story has been well documented, and has fought his way to the top. He raced in the 2008 Olympics less than two months after being diagnosed with testicular cancer. He postponed the surgery before finishing 10th in semifinals of the 200 breaststroke at Beijing.

Shanteau, 28, of Snellville, Ga., finished 11th Saturday night in semifinals of the 100-meter breaststroke. He is due to swim next in preliminaries of the 400-meter medley relay next Friday.
