MAKO Swimmer Anthony Grimm Selected to Participate at 2019 USA Swimming National Select Camp
Forty-eight top male athletes invited to train at Olympic Training Center
High School Junior Anthony Grimm was chosen as one of 48 boys from across the country to participate in USA Swimming’s National Select Camp slated for October 24-27 at the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
During the three-day camp, Anthony will experience the day-to-day routine of a U.S. National Team athlete and utilize the state-of-the-art training facilities. The campers will learn from top professionals about post-race recovery, psychological training skills, nutrition and stroke technique. In addition, campers will hear from headlining speaker and confidence coach, James Leath. He teaches the mental strength skills and leadership development tools through interactive lectures and team building activities.
“As the National Governing Body for the sport of swimming in this country, it is very exciting for us to be able to host some of the best young talent in the pool today,” USA Swimming’s Senior Director of Education, Programs and Services Mariejo Truex said. “The National Select Camp provides swimmers on the cusp of reaching international-level competition with an invaluable opportunity, tools and experience to help continue the upward trajectory of their swimming careers.”
Anthony is one of 48 top USA Swimming male athletes selected for the camp. Swimmers are selected from the SWIMS database of top times during the 2019 qualifying period, where the three fastest athletes in each event - ranging from age 14 to 16 - are invited to the camp. In addition, the six highest-scoring IMX athletes ages 15-16 are also invited.
