Olympic Champion, Newest Member of Ocean Champions

Posted by: Chris Laughlin

I couldn’t be any more thrilled to share with all of you the news of my cousin, . It was exciting to watch him and the team on TV, and to see his mom and my mom in the crowd at Beijing holding the American flag and cheering them on!

, it is the first time the US team has returned to the medal podium since 1988 when Terry Schroeder (the team’s coach) was the captain of the team (see ). Going into the games they carried a ninth place rating combined with a history of not finishing better than sixth in any of the last three games.

CONGRATS TIM & THE US MEN’S WATER POLO TEAM!

Just like the US Olympic Water Polo Team, Ocean Champions is defying the odds for ocean health. We may be small in structure, but we are huge with supporters - people like you - boaters, surfers, nature lovers and fishermen - and now an Olympic medalist.

Tim grew up in Seal Beach, CA. He’s always had a love for surfing and the oceans, and has become one of the newest voices of the only political voice for the oceans, Ocean Champions.
