13-Year Old Claire Weinstein Becomes Youngest
Qualifier for 2021 Olympic Trials Qualifying in the 400 &
800 Free !
Westchester Aquatic Club Wolverine's, 13-year old Claire Weinstein has become the youngest qualifier for the 2021 US Olympic Swimming Trials.
Claire splashed in 3rd place in the women’s 400 Free on Saturday, and 5th place in 200 on Friday & 800 free on Thursday in Richmond, Virginia – one of two sites for the split-location TYR Pro Swim Series meet this weekend. The Westchester Aquatic Club trainee swam 100% best times that dipped well under the Olympic Trials cut in the 400 & 800 Free. Claire missed her 200 Free trials cut by 3/10s of a second, however, her tome is the 3rd fastest 13 year old time in USA Swimming history and sets a new Metro Record.
Congratulations to Claire and her family !
