What's in Her Bag?

Summer Sanders first made waves as an Olympic gold medal swimmer at age 19, and later honed her skills as a spunky NBA reporter and host of the Nickelodeon game show Figure It Out. Today, when she's not serving as a correspondent for Good Morning America or the Rachael Ray Show, you can find her with her husband and their two kids rollicking along the beach. "I love surfing, body surfing, and boogie boarding," she says.

Summer will be reporting on the Olympic Games in London this month, but she'll be back on the sand as soon as possible. "Water is my element," she says. "When I'm at the beach, it's as if my whole body is taking a deep, cleansing breath and smiling."
