This past weekend Caspar Corbeau traveled to Victoria, British Columbia to swim in the 2018 Speedo Western Championships. The primary focus of this meet was for Caspar to qualify for the World Youth Olympics to represent the Netherlands. He did this and then some!
Not only did he qualify with the following times: 2:14.07, 1:01.86, and 28.14 in the 200, 100, and 50 breaststroke events, but his times in several events currently rank him in the TOP 100 in the WORLD!!!
200 Breaststroke - 2:14.07 - 75th
100 Breaststroke - 1:01.86 - 85th
50 Breaststroke - 28.14 - 61st
Next up for Caspar are the European Junior Championships which will be held in Helsinki, Finland this July.
Caspar is the second THSC swimmer to qualify and swim in the World Youth Olympics in the past 4 years. He follows Patrick Mulcare (now swimming for the University of Southern California) who swam in the 2014 Games held in Nanjing, China. Caspar will travel to Buenos Aires this October!
Now that is some AWESOME SWIMMING! Great Work, Caspar, and Congratulations.
