Natalie Coughlin has set world records, won gold medals, and competed on Dancing with the Stars.
Now the 11-time Olympic medalist can add one more line to her resume: acting.
The 2005 Cal alum took part in a SportsCenter ad titled “Silver and Gold,” which shows the Olympian reprehending a leprechaun for attempting to steal her Olympic medals. Coughlin’s six medals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics were the most by an American woman in the modern Olympics era.
In case that leprechaun returns to her desk, Coughlin will have one chance to earn a medal at this year’s Olympics. Though she won’t have the chance to defend all the medals she won in Beijing, Coughlin will compete in the 400 free relay for the third straight Games, an event in which she won silver medals in ’04 and ’08.
