Having a breakout meet at the 2008 Olympics Games, Soni is back in 2012 looking to defend her gold in the 200-meter breaststroke. Currently one of the best breaststrokers in the world and arguably of all time, she will be swimming both the 100- and 200-meter breaststroke, as well as the breaststroke leg on 400 medley relay. Look out for a showdown with teammate and dark horse Breeja Larson in the 100-meter breaststroke. Aside from Coughlin, she is also team captain for this year's squad and is the longtime girlfriend to fellow Olympic swimmer Ricky Berens.
