Congratulations to Metro Athletes Abigail King from Westchester Aquatic Club, Sofia Giordano and Lily Gormsen (pictured above) from Long Island Aquatic Club on qualifying for the 2022 USA Swimming National Select Camp, and to Coach Carle Fiero from Westchester Aquatic Club who was selected as an assistant coach at the camp. Also to William Siegel from Long Island Aquatic Club, who qualified for the Boys National Select Camp.

"This camp is designed for the top USA Swimming member athletes in the nation to have a once-in-a-lifetime camp experience. Swimmers are selected from the SWIMS database of top times. During the camp, these swimmers will learn about post race recovery, drug and supplement rules, psychological training skills, nutrition, race strategy and more. The 2022 National Select Camp will be held on October 6-9 (Girls) and October 13-16 (Boys) at the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO. 48 male and 48 female athletes shall be selected to participate in each camp. 42 athletes from each competition category shall be selected following the September 1, 2021 through August 31, 2022 qualifying period based on long course meter performances in the USA Swimming SWIMS database. The fastest three eligible athletes in each Olympic event will be invited. Doubles will be resolved by placing the athlete in his/her highest HY-tek power point event. Additionally, 6 female athletes age 14-15 and the 6 male athletes age 15-16 with the highest individual IMX Power Point scores, who were not previously selected for an individual event, will be invited. Male and female camps will be held separately." (https://www.usaswimming.org/swimmers-parents/swimmers/swim-camps/national-select-camps)
