McKinsey & Co recruit Maya DiRado has won two gold medals in this year’s Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. She secured the gold in the 200-meter backstroke and the 4X200 freestyle relay.

She beat out Katinka Hosszu, a Hungarian who herself has garnered three gold medals in this Olympics, in the backstroke.

“To look up and see the ‘1’ next to my name was just so unreal and I can’t believe that I did it,” DiRado told The Chicago Tribune. She has also won a silver medal in the 400 individual medley and a bronze medal in the 200 individual medley. It is her first Olympics, and her last, as she immediately retired following her competition.

DiRado, 23, graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Management Science and Engineering in 2014 and is set to become a business analyst for McKinsey in Atlanta. Though hired after her graduation, she put off her start date so that she could train for the Olympics.
