If you are wondering how to listen to the Olympics, iHeartRadio has you covered. iHeartRadio is the exclusive audio home of NBC's coverage of the 2024 Paris Olympics. The free iHeart app is the only way to listen to exclusive play-by-play action of Team USA. To celebrate, we are spotlighting some of the country's athletes that are vying for gold.

Megumi Field, an 18-year-old artistic swimmer from Wilmington, Delaware, is making waves in the world of synchronized swimming. Field began her journey in the sport at the tender age of five and has since become one of the youngest members of the U.S. National Team.

Field's dedication and talent have already led to significant achievements. She played a crucial role in helping the U.S. win its first world championship team medal in 16 years, thereby qualifying the team for the 2024 Paris Olympics. "This is such a huge thing that we were able to accomplish and then to be able to actually qualify for the Olympics, has just been overwhelming," Field told WATE.

Field's mother introduced her to artistic swimming, noting that she was born with her feet pointed, a trait beneficial for the sport. Field emphasized the demanding nature of the sport, which incorporates elements of gymnastics, ballet, dancing, swimming, and diving. Field explained to WFXRTV, "There’s just so many things not in the water that we have to train on land, and then to bring it all together and then synchronize it."

After the Paris Olympic Games, Field has committed to swim at Stanford University, continuing her journey in the sport while pursuing higher education.
