Read Chicago Tribune

Winnetka swimmer Conor Dwyer gets to drive a BMW ActiveHybrid 7 Series sedan for a year.

Dwyer won a one-year lease on the $96,000 car as the overall men’s champion of the six-event Arena Grand Prix series that ended Sunday at Santa Clara, Calif.

Dwyer, 25, a 2012 Olympic gold medalist, also earned a $10,000 championship series bonus from USA Swimming. He won six events and was second six times in the Grand Prix.

  1. Compared to what his prs in various races he swam during the GP series none really close to career bests. Yes I know the series is about preparing for the Bog Dance(nationals/Pan-Pacs ) but one would think a sponsor would say something to effect: “to win this lease you hotta do something really outstanding, not just turn in ho-hum performances” in my not so humble opinion!
