article imageOlympic medalist Elizabeth Beisel competing on 'Survivor' on CBS

Two-time Olympic medalist and retired swimmer Elizabeth Beisel announced that she is competing on the CBS reality competition "Survivor."
After Beisel retired from competitive swimming last year, she noted that she misses "challenging herself" and putting herself on the edge. She prides herself on being strong "physically, mentally, and socially." Her hobbies include surfing, violin, and wakeboarding.
In the first episode of the hit show, Survivor: Island of the Idols, Beisel shared that is a competitor, which has been embedded in her DNA her whole life, especially as a professional swimmer.
Most impressive about Beisel is that during her tenure as a swimmer, she became the youngest member of the United States Olympic Swimming Team in 2008 (that competed in the Beijing Olympics) at the age of 15.
With her gregarious personality and her unmatched work ethic, Beisel is the quintessential contestant for a competition such as Survivor.
While she may have won a silver and a bronze medal for Team USA at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, winning Survivor may very well be her chance of earning that coveted "gold" that she has always dreamed about.
