Pflugerville's Micah Lawrence Sumrall:
For 145 meters, it was all about King. At least the Golden Goggles voters knew outstanding swims when they saw them. Sumrall was honored with this year's Perseverance Award.
Earning the Perseverance Award was 2012 Olympian Micah Sumrall (Pflugerville, Texas/Chattahoochee Gold Swim Club), who bounced back in a big way with a gold-medal performance in the 200m breaststroke at the Pan Pacific Championships. After missing the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team, she took time away from the sport before resurfacing with Chattahoochee Gold Swim Club earlier this year. Buoyed by the support of the age-group swimmers she coaches, Sumrall won the 200m breast title at Phillips 66 Nationals and took third in the 100m breast in Irvine to qualify for her first international roster since 2015. In Tokyo, she nearly matched her career-best time in the 200m breast en route to gold, her first at a major international competition.
