A three-time All-American while at Stadium High School, Chuck Richards was a six-time state swimming champion, winning the 400 freestyle and 200 individual medley as a sophomore, the 100 freestyle and 100 butterfly as a junior, and the 100 freestyle and 200 individual medley as a senior. During his senior year, he held seven of the eight individual state records.
 
After high school, Chuck attended the Indiana University, where he was a two-time Collegiate All-American.  He went on to win the Junior Modern Pentathlon Championship in 1967 and become the Modern Pentathlon record holder in the 300-meter swim in 1969.  He also was the National Modern Pentathlon Champion in 1970, 1971, and 1972.  As a member of the 1972 Olympic Team in Munich, Chuck won the Pentathlon 300-meter swim with an Olympic and World Record time.
 
Richards was inducted into the Tacoma-Pierce County Sports Hall of Fame in 2005 and established and funds the Bruce Suttles Scholarship, an award for a Stadium High School college-bound swimmer.
