Competing as a pro doesn’t really matter for her at this point as the endorsement money on the table well outweighs any future prize money. Technically she could make a pretty substantial amount over the next couple of years without ever swimming another race.

This is really about her willingness to ‘cash-in’ on her current popularity via endorsement deals. The problem is, taking the endorsements would prevent her from swimming at the college level (but not from attending Stanford as a non-swim-team member).

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
