The Olympics are the biggest stage in the sport and the biggest dream of many athletes. For the very motivated and talented few, that dream becomes a goal.

Maggie MacNeil, a native Canadian and senior on the Michigan swim and dive team, had the Olympics as a backdrop from the beginning. Shortly after the 2008 Beijing Games, eight-year-old MacNeil began his swimming career.
