Congratulations to Rebecca Soni, who not won two gold medals in London but is our August Jersey Chase of the Month.
The captain of the women’s Olympic swim team is dating fellow Team USA member Ricky Berens. Before London, Berens buttom was better known than him for his swimsuit malfunction at the 2009 World Championships. But Berens won his first individual gold in at the 200-meter freestyle. Berens played the part of supportive boyfriend cheering on Soni. Soni became the first female to defend her title in 200-meter breaststroke, breaking her own world record with a time of 2:19.59.
