Swimmer Misty Hyman shares her Olympic story at Arizona Storytellers on July 19, 2016.

KJZZ partners with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers series. We record the live events and share them with you on the radio. In Phoenix, the storytellers sometimes share stories about our community or the life events that have shaped them in general. Megan Finnerty is the creator of the series. 

Misty Hyman always imagined winning a gold medal for swimming in the Olympics. When she was 16 years old she qualified to compete in the 1996 Olympic trials. But when she got to the trials, she missed making the team by three one hundredths of a second.

Misty Hyman is a swim coach, inspirational speaker and businesswoman in Paradise Valley.

The next storytelling event is Aug. 8, 2016, at Valley Bar in Downtown Phoenix.
