As a 16-year-old, Reeder represented the United States at the 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.[1][3] She swam for the gold medal-winning U.S. team in the preliminary heats of the women's 4×100-meter medley relay,[1][4] but did not receive a medal. Under the 1964 international swimming rules, only those relay swimmers who competed in the event final were eligible to receive medals.
