Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Glenn Edward ("Ed") Moses, Jr. (born June 7, 1980) is an American swimmer who won gold and silver medals at the 2000 Summer Olympics. He was born in Loma Linda, California to Glenn Edward, a United States Air Force colonel, and Sissy Moses, a school teacher. Moses is unusual among elite swimmers, in that he did not begin swimming year-round until his senior year of high school. Leading into the Olympic Games, Moses broke the American record at the 2000 Olympic Trials. At the 2000 Olympics he won two medals; silver in the 100 meter breaststroke and gold as a member of the world record-setting 4 x 100 medley relay team. He swam for the University of Virginia and won the NCAA Championship in the 100 and 200 meter breaststroke events in 2000, setting world records for both events. He graduated from the University of Virginia in 2005 with a degree in sports medicine. He has also volunteered as an assistant coach at the University.show more
