Prior to last night, Olasewere was tied for the 14th fastest swimmer in the event in the age group ever. Her swim Saturday night won the ‘C’ final.

Olasewere still has time to move up in the rankings as her 16th birthday occurred this week during the meet. This means she has through the end of the summer as well as the beginning of the long course season next year to move up.

Earlier in the week in Indianapolis, Olasewere swam a personal best of a 55.74 in the ‘D’ final of the 100 free. Her previous best was a 56.11.

Both she and her twin Ayaan, are a joy to coach. Great coordination between the HS and club programs.

That 24.1 from Curzan is scary fast, even though it remains somewhat suspect since she really never came close to that before or after.

Annam is a wonderful young lady with a very bright future ahead of her. She also has a twin sister, Ayaan, who is a very strong swimmer, too! Best wishes to both gals and congrats to the whole Olasawere family. 🙂
