We’re so proud of 25 year old swimmer Connor Jaeger, from Fair Haven, NJ, on earning his first Olympic medal: a Silver in the Men’s 1500m freestyle finishing in 14:39.48–a new American record in the event!

Jaegar grew up in Fair Haven and started swimming at 8 years old. He and his sister, Dana, swam for the Central Jersey Aquatic Club (CJAC) under coaches Corrina Weinkofsky and Cathy Corcione. He qualified for New Jersey All Star and Junior Olympics teams. He graduated from Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School in 2010. Jaeger was named All-State in the 200 yard freestyle and set 5 Shore Conference records. He went on to University of Michigan where studied engineering and was named the Big Ten Swimmer of the Year in both 2013 and 2014. He’s also a 10-time NCAA All-American. Thanks for making us proud!
