View video of Jason Lezak who is not only a four-time Olympic Gold Medal Swimmer but an All-American in water polo (7m 54s flashplayer required).

Jason Lezak saved the dream not once, but twice for Team USA and teammate Michael Phelps. On August 11th 2008, Jason anchored the historic 4x100m Men's Medley Relay team in a come-from-behind victory over the French, with the fastest 100 relay split ever (46.06). Jason Lezak's powerful clutch performance kept Michael Phelps' quest for eight gold medals alive, and helped the relay team shatter the world record.

On August 17th Jason Lezak once again dominated the last leg of the 4x100m Men's Medley Relay, winning the gold for his USA team and securing Phelps' record setting 8th gold medal. The 2008 Beijing Olympic Games proved that Jason Lezak is definitely a team player.

Jason Lezak grew up in Southern 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 Lezak 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 until 1998, Jason Lezak lit up the U.S. Nationals that year, 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 Lezak 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.

In 2008, Jason Lezak once more took his place on the US Team when he qualified for the Beijing Olympics in the 100m freestyle, the 4x100m free relay and the 4x100m medley relay. At 32, the oldest male athlete on the U.S. swim team and tri-captain, Jason Lezak anchored the U.S. men's 400-meter freestyle relay team to a come-from-behind victory, stealing the Gold from the French.

Jason Lezak is now a seasoned veteran in the sport. Having raced and beaten his toughest competitors has given him a confidence and a winning record that can't be questioned.
