Summer emerged as the most decorated U.S. swimmer in the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona, winning four medals – two gold, a silver, and a bronze. Following retirement from swimming, Sanders pursued a career in television appearing on a multitude of programs as correspondent and host. Highlights include eight years co-hosting “NBA Inside Stuff”, the first female game-show host on Nickelodeon’s “Figure It Out”, Olympic analyst and host for NBC, Today Show special contributor, and hosting Fox’s hit show “The Sports List”.

Sports award winning web series Elite Athlete Workout and their 2012 Olympic Games swimming coverage.  Currently, Sanders can be seen on CBS Sports Network’s all female roundtable sports show, “We Need To Talk.”

Sanders is also a health and fitness advocate, producing articles, tips and workouts for various outlets; she is an active Right to Play Ambassador and she is currently filming new projects with her production company, Black Line Media.  She also serves as a spokesperson for John Wayne Cancer Foundation’s “Block The Blaze” campaign after surviving three melanomas.  Summer is married to Olympic ski racer Erik Schlopy and they have a son and daughter based in Park City, UT.

Summer’s continued passion and love for swimming, and leading an active lifestyle, is truly inspiring. Through this partnership, Summer and Dolfin are excited to inspire people of all ages to swim for fitness and to educate on the importance of water and sun safety. Working closely together, Summer and Dolfin also look forward to cultivating a culture of empowerment for women of all body types and supporting them in being the best versions of themselves, in and out of the pool.

“I am both honored and excited to be a part of the Dolfin Swimwear family,” says Sanders. “I wore Dolfin back when I was first learning how to swim, and have kept this brand close to my heart as I grew with the sport of swimming. I am passionate about representing and empowering the everyday woman, and Dolfin aligns with that passion to make women feel confident both in and out of the pool through their Aqushape collection”.

“We are honored to welcome Summer into our Dolfin family,” says Matthew Cowan, Chief Commercial Officer at Elite Sportswear.  “Her love of swimming, dedication to the sport, and passion for life resignates with our brand values.  We are excited to partner with Summer to inspire more people of all ages to get involved with swimming and all aquatic fitness activities.”
