Olympic gold medalist Misty Hyman recently welcomed her first child, a daughter, into the world. Vivian Margaret Eileen Hovey was born on September 23rd in the early morning, weighing in at 8 lbs and 11 oz. Both mom and daughter are doing well.
Hyman recently announced her daughter’s birth on her Instagram account.
Hyman became an Olympic gold medalist in the 200 fly at the 2000 Sydney Games when she famously upset favorite Australian Susie O’Neill. She is also a five-time NCAA champion and a two-time winner of the Honda Sports Award. In March, she announced that she would not be returning as a member of ASU’s Sun Devil staff, but followed up that announcement by announcing her pregnancy in June.
