Congratulations to three of Pacific Swimming's swimmers who were chosen for the USA Swimming National Select Camp:
Jessica Davis - Crow Canyon Country Club Sharks
Ethan Hu - PEAK Swimming
Armando Vegas - Crow Canyon Country Club Sharks
Ninety-six top male and female age-group swimmers were chosen from across the country to participate in USA Swimming’s National Select Camp. Based on times in the 2018 qualifying period (September 1st, 2017 through August 31st, 2018), the top 3 swimmers, aged 14-16, of each gender in each of the 14 Olympic events earned an invite. Thereafter, the 6 swimmers with the best IMX scores, who weren’t already selected, were included to make 48-per-gender. The camps, which are slated for October 11-14 for the girls and October 25-28 for the boys, will take place at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.
During the four-day camps, the 48 male and 48 female athletes attending their respective camp, will experience the day-to-day routine of a National Team athlete and swim in the United States Olympic Committee’s state-of-the-art training facilities. The campers will learn from top aquatic professionals about post-race recovery, psychological training skills, nutrition and race strategy. In addition, campers will hear from speaker and confidence coach, Christen Shefchunas, author of Naked Confidence: Revealing Your Whole Truth and Finally Moving Forward.
