Biography

With victories in both the springboard and platform at the 1952 and 1956 Olympics, Pat McCormick of the United States became the only woman diver in history to win four Olympic gold medals. Her double-double Olympic diving victories have been matched only by Greg Louganis among the men. Her second double victory at Melbourne came only five months after the birth of her son. McCormick won 17 AAU titles: Outdoor – 1950-51, 1953-56 1-metre springboard; 1950-51, 1953-56 3-metre springboard; and 1949-51, 1954, 1956 platform; Indoor – 1951-55 1-metre springboard; and 1951-52, 1954-55 3-metre springboard. At the Pan American Games she won three gold in springboard (1955) and platform (1951 and 1955) and one silver in springboard (1951). Her husband, John McCormick, was the AAU champion on the platform in 1950-51 and her daughter, Kelly, competed for the United States at the 1984 and 1988 Olympics, winning a silver in 1984 and a bronze in 1988, both on the springboard.
