Almond Board |

With the Rio Olympics around the corner, we couldn’t help but chat with one of its most viable contenders – twelve-time Olympic swimming medalist and twenty-time World Championship swimming medalist Natalie Coughlin. P.S., Coughlin is just one medal shy of becoming the most decorated American female Olympic athlete in history…suffice to say we were itching for a sit-down. Besides the fact that she’s currently training for her fourth Olympic Games, she’s also made appearances as a judge on Chopped and Iron Chef. We caught up with Coughlin on her workout routines, the best and worst foods for skin and her road to the 2016 summer Olympics.
