UNDATED — Natalie Coughlin, a 12-time Olympic medalist, is returning to the pool as a member of the DC Trident, one of the teams in the new International Swimming League.

Although Coughlin never formally retired, she hasn’t competed since the 2016 U.S. Olympic trials. In the years since, she’s served as a swimming commentator and had her first child last October.

Coughlin will be joined by Katie Ledecky on DC Trident. Rosters for four of the league’s eight teams were announced Tuesday.
