Olympic Swimming gold medalist Ricky Berens is a living testament to BMW's innovation and technology. In fact, Ricky still credits BMW for saving his life in a car accident that occurred when he was younger. Since then, he has become an accomplished Olympian and the only male swimmer to win a gold medal at every key international event between 2007 and 2011. Ricky made his Olympic debut at the 2008 Olympic Games, where he won gold in the 4x200 meter relay with a world-record-breaking time of 6:58:55. He also won gold in the 2009 World Championships, 2010 Pan Pacific Championships, 2011 FINA World Championships and 2011 Duel in the Pool—establishing himself as a solid multiple medal contender for London.
