2018 USA SWIMMING WESTERN ZONE ALL-STAR TEAM
DENVER, CO, February 16-18, 2018 – Caleb Robinson from Denver, CO will represent the Western U.S. as an All-Star on the sixteen-athlete team competing at the upcoming 2018 Black History Invitational in Washington D.C., February 16-18, 2018. Each year, USA Swimming selects two all-star-teams to compete at an event celebrating Diversity. Athletes are selected to the Western team based on their 2017 performances. “This is the most competitive selection process we have ever had,” said Jeremiah Stanton of Albuquerque, NM, who heads the selection committee for the West, “it is difficult to select just 16 athletes when there are 28 events. Those selected are our most well-rounded and talented swimmers.”
Robinson swims for the Denver Stingrays swim team.
Caleb Robinson is available for comment through their parent(s) at: 720-275-4027.
