No stranger to the podium, Maggie Steffens has taken the world of aquatic sports by storm. At just 25 years old, the veteran of two Olympic tournaments has earned gold medals for her impressive performance in both the 2012 and 2016 Summer Games. In addition to being named MVP of the 2012 Olympic tournament, Steffens also set the Olympic record for most goals scored in women’s water polo. Aside from her accolades on the world’s stage, Maggie has also been named to the Sports Illustrated list of “Top 25 Most Fit Athletes” in 2016, 2017 and 2018, and is a co-founder of 6-8 Sports with fellow U.S. Olympic water polo player Tony Azevedo.
As captain of one of the most successful teams in Olympic history, Maggie has helped to lead the sport of water polo to new heights — and she shows no signs of slowing down.
When asked about her sponsorship, here’s what Maggie had to say:
“Family, teamwork, development, creativity, and the constant pursuit of excellence are values that drive my life,” Steffens said. “TYR embodies these in their innovative culture of greatness and is a brand that encourages athletes to compete and show their passion. I am very humbled to be partnering with TYR and to join their incredible team of athletes, many of whom I admire from our time at Stanford together or through Team USA. I am excited to not only represent TYR with the USA Women’s Water Polo Team, but as a female athlete who wants to open the door for her sport. Anyone who knows me knows I’m a big dreamer, so I truly believe this is just the first step to showing kids a new possible future in water polo.”
