Dan Harrigan’s first international exposure came at the age of 10, when he competed in a U.S.-Canada dual meet. Ten years later, in 1975, he won the 200m backstroke at the Pan-American Games, and although he improved on his winning Pan-Am time by almost five seconds at the 1976 Olympics, he still finished third behind teammates [John Naber] and [Peter Rocca]. Harrigan's medal was remarkable as he had contracted hepatitis while at the 1975 Pan-Am Games and was out of training for several months. Harrigan was a dean’s list student in architecture at North Carolina State.
