Swim Across America is proud to call Olympian Ben Wildman-Tobriner a
part of our Swim Across America family. Ben has been involved with Swim
Across America since 2007, when he led his first SAA swim clinic with
fellow Olympians Ray Carey and Jeff Float. Not only that, he is
currently a medical student at the University of California San
Francisco, one of our distinguished beneficiaries.
Ben grew up in San Francisco and attended Stanford University as an
undergraduate (an alma mater of many of our Olympic swimmers). He earned
his first World Championship title in 2007 in the 50m free, won his
first U.S. national title in 2005 and fulfilled one of his life-long
dreams in August of 2009 by winning a gold medal in the 400-meter
freestyle relay in the Beijing Olympics.
