At the tail end of a summer filled with big international meets, the World Junior Championships are just around the corner. The championships will be in Singapore and take place from Aug 25th to the 30th. The team is currently scheduled to reassemble on August 20th to travel to Singapore for the Championships.
Cassidy Bayer, much like her male counter parts on the Jr National team, is a valuable asset in the up and coming crop of fresh talent in US swimming. Having role models like Katie Mclaughlin, who at age 18 placed 6th at the 2015 World Championships, Cassidy, at only 15, has a very bright future in the stroke of her predecessor.
She will be swimming both butterfly’s at World Jr Champs. With seed times of 2:08.0 and 59.0, she will not only be a force, but she’s going to be hungry for more as well. At US Nationals, her goal was to be sub-59 and sub-2:08, both of which she was right on the cusp of.
Look to Bayer to make a statement in the coming week.
