Fort Lauderdale Aquatics now has two of the youngest swimmers qualified for the June 29-July 6 U.S. Olympic Trials in Omaha, Neb.
At the Southern Zone Section Championships that end today at the YMCA Aquatic Center in Orlando, Chelsea Britt, 13, won the 100-meter butterfly in 1 minute, 2.12 seconds, well under the qualifying standard of 1:02.39.
Britt joins teammate Lauren Driscoll, 14, who was also 13 when she qualified, as two of the youngest swimmers in the trials.
“We have some pretty spectacular stuff going on up here,” FLA coach Ian Cross said. “Our youngest phenom girl made the trials cut and won the event. I thought that was pretty darn special. She is pretty psyched.”
