Vanderpool-Wallace’s stellar performance in Charlotte marks the beginning of what is sure to be a summer of fast swimming. “The PanAm games are going to be incredibly fast,” said Vanderpool-Wallace, looking to July where she’ll compete in the PanAm games in Toronto. With her sights set on a competitive field in Toronto, Vanderpool-Wallace is still deciding if she will compete for her native Bahamas at the World Championships in Kazan, Russia.

“Arianna is a standout athlete, in and out of the water. She is primed for well-deserved success over the course of the next year and we are proud to have her on Team FINIS.” –John Mix, FINIS, Inc. CEO
