Trio to represent Denison at Olympic Trials

Trio to represent Denison at Olympic Trials

The United States Swimming Olympic Trials begin today and Denison University will be well represented in Omaha, Neb.  Denison swimmers Al Weik and Quinn Bartlett will compete along with recently hired assistant coach, Megan Waters.

The NCAA Division III record-holder in the mile, Weik will swim the 1,500 meters on Sunday, July 1.  He enters the Olympic Trials with the 44th fastest time out of 96 entries at 15:43.05.  A five-time national champion, Weik will return to Denison for his junior year this fall.

In the 200 meter backstroke, Bartlett boasts the 25th fastest time out of 113 swimmers at 2:01.77.  Joining Bartlett in that event with the fastest qualifying time and third-fastest time, respectively are gold medal winners Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps.  Bartlett captured a national championship and set a national record in the 200 backstroke as a sophomore in 2011.  A six-time All-American, he qualified for Olympic Trials at the U.S. National Championship in Palo Alto, Calif., last August.  Bartlett will swim the prelims of the 200 back on Friday, June 29. Bartlett is also slated to swim the 100 backstroke on Tuesday, June 26.

A 2011 graduate of Princeton, Waters is making her second appearance at the Olympic Trials.  She will swim in the 50 freestyle preliminary on Sunday, July 1 and the 100 freestyle preliminary on Friday, June 29.

Preliminary heats will be streamed live on the internet at http://www.usaswimming.org beginning each day at 11 a.m. E.S.T. Finals will air live on NBC at 8 p.m. E.S.T.
