Jessica Long has dominated Paralympic swimming for more than a decade. Her success in the pool and inspiring backstory of adoption from an orphanage in Russia—followed by both of her legs being amputated at 18 months—has made her one of the world’s most recognized athletes with a disability. With 23 medals earned at four Paralympic Games, Long is the second-most decorated U.S. Paralympian in history and shows no signs of slowing down after winning six medals at the 2019 world championships. She also has earned 52 world championship medals and won three ESPY awards. Long has established herself as a positive role model and reputable spokesperson for worldwide brands and causes.
