3x Michigan HS Champion Gracie Olsen Verbals to Indiana for 2022

Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

OLY Swimming’s Gracie Olsen has verbally committed to Indiana University for fall 2022. She’s a junior at Fenton High School in Fenton, Mich.

To me, the most important aspect of a team is the culture and how well everyone works together. IU feels like home to me. As soon as I stepped on campus I knew that this is where I want to spend my four years! The coaches and swimmers are so easy to talk to and I have had so much fun getting to know them and what the program has to offer. I am so grateful for the opportunity to continue my academic and athletic career at IU and cannot wait to be a part of the Hoosier family!!❤️🤍
