Olympic swimmer Ryan Murphy’s battle against migraines shows his toughness outside of the pool

Ryan Murphy, a 2016 Olympian and three-time gold medalist, who is looking to qualify for his second Games, remembers one of the most difficult moments in fighting his migraine headaches.

It's a powerful story, and it demonstrates what Murphy has overcome not just as an Olympian, but as a human being fighting the beast that is a migraine.

Murphy has partnered with Eli Lilly, the prescription medicines partner of the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC). Eli Lilly works to treat various conditions such as diabetes and also focuses on oncology and biomedicine therapeutics.

As a new USOPC sponsor, Lilly is working with a number of Olympic athletes including Chaunté Lowe. Hers is one of the more remarkable stories as we are 100 days out from the Games in Tokyo. Lowe is a four-time Olympian (2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016) in track and field attempting to qualify for her fifth Games.

In 2019 she was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer. She underwent a double mastectomy and chemotherapy to treat the disease and has returned to competition. She's also a mom of three children.
