Susan von der Lippe, nee Susan Gerard Rapp, is an American competition swimmer, Olympic medalist, and Masters world record-holder in multiple events. She attended Stanford University, where she swam for the Stanford Cardinal swimming and diving team in National Collegiate Athletic Association and Pacific-10 Conference competition. Rapp first qualified for the 1980 Olympic games, but was unable to compete due to the United States-led boycott of the Olympic games hosted by the Soviet Union. Four years later at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, she had significant success. She won a silver medal for her second-place performance in the women's 200-meter breaststroke, finishing with a time of 2:31.15. She earned a gold medal by swimming for the winning U.S. team in the preliminary heats of the women's 4x100-meter medley relay. Individually, she also finished seventh in the final of the women's 100-meter breaststroke, recording a time of 1:11.45. Four years later at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea, Rapp competed in the B Final of the women's 200-meter breaststroke, finishing thirteenth overall with a time of 2:32.90.
