Teri McKeever, 1st female head coach of the U.S. Olympic women’s swim team

+
From the NYT article (author: Pat Borzi): An innovator, McKeever emphasized cross-training over relentless yardage. She introduced ocean swimming, Pilates and even dancing to workouts to keep her swimmers’ minds and bodies fresh. Cal’s 2009 N.C.A.A. championship made McKeever the first woman to coach a team to a national swimming and diving title, and the Golden Bears added two more the last two years. She was named Olympic women’s head coach two years ago after serving as an assistant in 2004 and ’08. ... The label of trailblazer makes McKeever uneasy, but not the job itself. "What I wanted to do in life was make a difference and be a positive influence," McKeever said. "There are some regrets, absolutely. But it’s been amazing. I’m incredibly blessed and honored, and there is nothing I would rather do. "I can honestly look you in the eye and go, I’m pretty good at what I do, too. It took me a long time to be able to say that."
