Patrick Sammon’s passion for the water is crystal clear. He took the first jump at around age 3 — and has been swimming ever since.

He’s also committed to Arizona State to train under the legendary Bob Bowman, the former coach of the most decorated Olympian of all time: Michael Phelps. Patrick is just the latest Sacramento area swimmer to own the Olympic dream, as he recently qualified for the U.S. Olympic trials in the 50-, 100- and 200-meter freestyle races.
