Distinguished Speaker Series: Amanda Beard

When: Thu., Aug. 28, 7 p.m. 2014

She won seven Olympic medals, was named American Swimmer of the Year twice and posed for Playboy. But, considering the beginning of Amanda Beard's 2012 best-selling memoir In the Water They Can't See You Cry, fame and success don't count for much: "Bleeding and broken on a bathroom floor. I felt embarrassed and ashamed. Why was I such a loser?" Self-mutilation, bulimia and depression are just the beginning of what the 32-year-old has dealt with, a story she'll share at 7 tonight at Colorado State University-Pueblo (2200 Bonforte Blvd., Pueblo, csupueblo.edu) in the school's first installment of this year's Distinguished Speakers Series. Admission is free. — Bryce Crawford
