World class swimming is happening this week in Indianapolis!  The 2013 World Championship Swimming Trials are being held Tuesday through Saturday at the IUPUI Natatorium.  Featuring a number of Olympians and U.S. National Team members, including gold medalists Missy Franklin (Centennial, Colo.) and Ryan Lochte (Daytona Beach, Fla.), the five-day meet is the sole qualifier for the pool competition at next month’s FINA World Championships in Barcelona, Spain.

Manta Ray's Zoe Thatcher, 16 (Mason, Ohio), will be one of the few swimmers under the age of 18 in the competition. She will be swimming the 800 meter free on Tuesday.  Although not fully rested, she is excited to be swimming against the best in the world!
