Glenn Edward Moses, Jr. (born June 7, 1980)[1] is an Olympic and former world record holding breaststroke swimmer from the United States. He swam for the USA at the 2000 Olympics, where he won a gold and silver medal.

He was born in Loma Linda, California to Glenn Edward, a United States Air Force colonel, and Sissy Moses, a school teacher. Moses did not begin swimming year-round until his senior year of high school.[2]

Leading into the 2000 Olympic Games, Moses broke an American record at the 2000 U.S. Olympic Trials. At the 2000 Olympics he won two medals: silver in the 100 m breaststroke and gold as a member of the USA's world record-setting 4×100 medley relay.

He swam for the University of Virginia and won in the 100 m and 200 m breaststroke events at the 2000 NCAA Division I Championships, setting World Records for both events (in 2000 the NCAAs were swum short course meters, allowing for world records). He graduated from the University of Virginia in 2005 with a degree in sports medicine. He has also volunteered as an assistant coach at the University.

On January 23, 2002 in Stockholm, Sweden, Moses set a world record in the short course 100 m Breaststroke (57.47). In January 2002, Moses also set the world mark in the short course 200 m breaststroke, which he lowered again Berlin, Germany on January 17, 2004 with a time of 2:02.92.[3]

He recently appeared on Golf Channel's "Big Break Disney," where he was eliminated in the first episode.

On Nov. 5, 2010 SwimmingWorld.TV announced that Ed Moses was making a comeback.[4] As part of his return to swimming, Moses swam at the 2011 U.S. Masters Short Course Nationals.

Post Swimming[edit]

Ed Moses continued his sporting career as a semi-professional golfer. He co-founded MoJo Marketing & Media, a creative content consulting company. He currently serves as a Vice President. He is also pursuing a MBA degree at UCLA Anderson School of Management[5]
