Agnes Kovacs won the gold medal in the 200 breaststroke at the 2000 Olympics, and continued to be a successful swimmer after that, competing in the United States for Arizona State University and winning a couple of NCAA titles. In her speech in front of an illustrious crowd, she talked of the large support team of family, coaches and friends who helped her follow her dream. “If you really, really want to do something, you can do it,” she said. “You just have to fight and never give up.”
