While some athletes get signed to million-dollar endorsement contracts, others apparently would rather be voice acting!

Such is the case for Japanese Olympian Satomi Suzuki.

Hear more about Suzuki's dream in today's VOX Daily.

An Actor's Life For Me

Satomi SuzukiJapanese swimmer Satomi Suzuki dreams of becoming a voice actress.

After winning her silver medal for the 200 meter breaststroke, the 21-year-old Suzuki spoke with reporters and shared her goals and vision for the future. According to Anime News Network, her future aspirations lie in voice acting.

Anime News Network went on to validate this statement by referencing a report made by The Sports Hochi newspaper in May citing that Suzuki was talking on the phone with her childhood swimming coach, and instead of telling her coach that she was going to win a medal, she said, "I'm going to become a voice actress."

Microphone Bound?

One talented lady, Suzuki wowed the world at the 2012 London Olympic Games by winning three medals for Japan in swimming including a silver medal in the Women's 200-meter Breaststroke event, a bronze medal in the Women's 100-meter Breaststroke event, and a bronze medal with three other women in the Women's 4x100-meter Medley Relay event.

Suzuki has shown she can rise to excellence on the world stage as a swimmer. I wonder if her dreams of becoming a voice actress will come true and land her behind a microphone.

Time To Put Your Thinking Cap On
