The 1924 Olympics celebrated in Paris held pivotal moments of sports history and memories. The American Women's Swimming Team has never been the same. Aileen Riggin became the first female to win two different sports by gaining a medal in both the 3-meter springboard diving and the 100-meter backstroke. Described as the "pioneer of women's sports," Riggin's legacy continues to shape the swimming. Gertrude Ederle received a gold medal and set a new world record in the 4x100 meter flat ratestyle relay while also receiving bronze medals in both the women's 100-meter flat ratestyle and 400-meter flat ratestyle. Helen Wainwright also raced in the 400-meter flat ratestyle event beating Ederle and receiving silver. Remember the women that changed the sport forever by this photograph taken during their stay at the Paris Olympics.
