Jason Lezak

8-Time Olympic Medalist

Jason Lezak grew up in Irvine, California and enjoyed all sports as a kid. He began swimming at the age of 5 and grew up to become an All-American in Water-Polo. Jason also played on his high school basketball team and is considered one of the most athletic and energetic personalities in the sport of swimming.

Virtually unknown in the swimming world in 1998, Jason lit up the 1998 U.S. Nationals winning his first National Title in the 100 Freestyle…and that was only the beginning. Jason went on to win a Gold and Silver Medal at the 2000 Olympic Games. In 2002 Jason dominated his opponents becoming the #1 ranked sprinter in the world. At the 2004 Olympics, Jason took the Bronze in the 4x100m freestyle and the Gold Medal in a world record breaking swim in the 4 x 100m medley relay.

Jason is now a seasoned veteran in the sport. Having raced and beaten his best competitors gives him a confidence and a winning record that can't be questioned. In 2008, Jason took his place on the US Team one more time when he qualified for the Beijing Olympics in the 100m freestyle, the 4x100m free relay, and the 4x100m medley relay. At 32, the oldest man on the U.S. swim team and tri-captain, Jason anchored the U.S. men's 400-meter freestyle relay team to a come-from-behind victory, stealing the Gold from the French. Expect to see his leg, the fastest 100 relay split (46.06), for decades to come in sports highlight films. Jason also dominated the last leg of the 4x100m Men’s Medley Relay, winning the gold for his USA team and securing Michael Phelps’ record setting 8th gold medal.

These Olympic Games proved that Jason is definitely a team player. To book peak performance speaker Jason Lezak call Executive Speakers Bureau 901-754-9404.

TRIRIGA, Inc.

Jason was a huge hit at our event. When George brought him on stage, he had a great standing ovation. He was very engaging at the cocktail party, and was a real trooper at our big event that evening (between autographs, mingling and photos). Thanks again for making it possible for Jason to be with us. No one will forget his contribution to our event.

Roche Pharmaceuticals

“I cannot tell you how much people absolutely loved you!!! Your presence and story was what we needed and personally I still cannot believe that I had the good fortune of standing next to someone like you, a real hero. I am a total sports nut and I admire teams/athletes who never say die, that always compete to the end. So, believe me, having you talk at our meeting was my pleasure.”

ALLSCRIPTS

"I wanted to let you know Jason was unbelievable! His presentation was inspiring and humorous and our attendees were enamored by his presence. Please let him know we appreciate all that he did, especially signing all of the JDRF items - we raised over $900 last night and we will be auctioning off more throughout the week. Our CEO said you can count on us asking Jason to come back for more events."
