Jérémy Stravius is a French swimmer, swimming freestyle, backstroke, and butterfly.
His main and rather the only source of income is a professional career as a swimmer which brings him great profits.
At the 2009 European Short Course Swimming Championships in Istanbul, where he participated in the winning 4 50 m freestyle relay and placed eighth in the 50 m breaststroke, Stravius made his international debut.
The next year, in 2010, Stravius won his first medal at an international competition when he won silver in the 100-meter backstroke at the European Short Course Swimming Championships in Hungary.
He also competed in the victorious 4 100 m medley relay squad and the 4 200 m freestyle relay team in this competition.
At the 2011 FINA World Championships in Shanghai, 100 m backstroke gold medalist Stravius won his first international gold. He gave it to Camille Lacourt, a fellow countryman.
At this competition, he also won silver medals in the 4 x 100 and 4 x 200 m freestyle relays.
At the French Olympic Trials, Stravius finished third in the 100-meter backstroke, just missing out on the chance to compete in an individual event at the Olympics.
He only competed in the heats, however he was a member of the French relay teams that won the 4 x 100 m freestyle gold medal and the 4 x 200 m freestyle silver medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics.
In the winning 4 100 m medley relay on July 28, 2013, at the FINA World Championships in Barcelona, Stravius swam the butterfly leg. In the men's 4 100 m freestyle final, Stravius swam as the anchor for France.
Being seeded outside the middle lanes in the final despite being the defending Olympic champions led Stravius to remark, "On n'était pas favoris, c'est un hold up."
After 200 meters in which France had fallen behind the top three nations, Fabien Gilot burst through with a third leg time of 46.90 seconds to put his country back in the game.
After passing the Australians at the start of his leg and falling behind the Russians and Americans at the halfway point of his anchor leg, Stravius executed a precise flipturn and, after performing several powerful dolphin kicks underwater, emerged in front by a hand, ultimately winning the gold medal for France by 0.26s.
He also took home silver in the 50 and 100 meter backstroke events. He competed in the 4 x 200 m freestyle relay and the 200 m individual medley at this meet.
Stravius won two silver medals at the 2014 European Aquatics Championships in Berlin, one in the 50-meter backstroke and the other in the 100-meter backstroke. In the 4 100 m freestyle relay, he also took home a gold medal.
Stravius presently owns the French National Records for the 100-meter butterfly and the 200-meter individual medley (short course).
Jérémy Stravius' net worth is currently estimated at $0.7 million.
