Pat McCormick (1957)

Biography

American diver, who won both diving events (springboard and platform) at two consecutive Summer Olympics, in 1952 and 1956. She won the James E. Sullivan Award for best amateur athlete in the USA in 1956 – the second woman to do so.

As a child in the 1930s and 1940s she was notable for executing dives that were not allowed in competition for female divers (dives reputed to scare most men) and for practising off the Los Alamitos Bridge in Long Beach, California Harbor.

After the Olympics McCormick did diving tours and was a model for Catalina swimsuits. She served on the Los Angeles 1984 Summer Olympics organizing committee and began a program called "Pat's Champs"—a foundation to help motivate kids to dream big and to set practical ways to succeed.

McCormick's husband Glenn was the AAU champion in the platform in 1950–1951. Their daughter Kelly (born 1960) won two Olympic medals in diving. McCormick also had a son, who was born five months before the 1956 Olympics.
