Congratulations to Max Fabian and Drew Ledwith who both qualified for the USA Swimming National Open Water Select Camp to be held June 5-9, 2012 in Fort Myers, FL. USA Swimming seeks to identify the best distance swimmers, offering them a unique motivational and educational experience. The National Open Water Camp is viewed as an integral step for athletes to move from the pool to Open Water, then to the international scene.
Eight male and 8 female athletes are selected off of the top 2011 times in the Swims database in the 1500 meter freestyle. An additional 4 male and 4 female athletes are then selected off of the results of the 2011 5K National Open Water Championships. Athletes who have been to camp in the past or are part of the National Open Water Team are not eligible.
Congratulations Max and Drew for a job well done!
