Daniel Watters

 

Born and raised in Southern Maryland, Daniel began swimming at the age of 6 and competed for the St. Mary’s Aquatic Club until age 13 when his family moved to Pensacola, Florida.  Under the guidance of Coach Steve Bultman, he set multiple National Age Group Records in the 100 and 200 Breastroke, won 3 State Championships in the 100 Breast and a Junior National Championship in the 200 Breast.  In 1988 he qualified for the US Olympic Team in the 100 Meter Breastroke and swam at the Seoul, South Korea Olympic Games.  The following year he accepted a scholarship to swim for the University of Texas where he swam on 2 NCAA Championship Teams and was voted team captain his senior year.

Daniel now resides in Dallas with his wife Alex and their two daughters.  He has been active with Swim Across America since 2009 when he participated in the San Francisco Open Water.  Since then he has returned to San Francisco annually and swam in the Inaugural Baltimore Open Water.  In 2011 he helped bring Swim Across America to Dallas for the Inaugural Open Water and remains as Co-Director of the Dallas Committee for Swim Across America.  He swims in memory of his Aunt Charlotte who lost her battle with cancer and to honor his nephew Lindsay who is a cancer survivor.  He hopes that through his efforts and the efforts of all that swim, volunteer or donate their time to Swim across America we can help bring an end to this terrible disease.
