Elizabeth Beisel, an Olympic Swimmer, Is Competing on Survivor: Island of the Idols


Survivor has had its fair share of athletes and celebrities that have competed on the show, and this current season is no different. On the premiere of Survivor: Island of the Idols, castaway Elizabeth Beisel revealed that she was an Olympic swimmer.

Beisel’s stats are astounding—she started swimming at the age of five, and she competed at the 2007 World Championships at 14. Beisel represented the United States in swimming for twelve consecutive years, which is the longest streak of any female athlete to ever swim for the USA, and it’s the second longest streak behind Michael Phelps.
