ASU has gotten a verbal from Arizona Gold’s Ben Olszewski. The distance freestyler notched an Olympic Trials standard in the 400 free this past summer.
Olszewski’s Top Times
- 200 free – 1:39.67/1:54.01
- 500/400 free – 4:21.48/3:58.45
- 1650/1500 free – 15:22.04/15:50.06
Representing Horizon, Olszewski won the 500 free and added a 3rd place finish in the 200 IM at last year’s Arizona Div. I HS Champs.
Olszewski has the makings to score in multiple events at the Pac-12 Champs, as he would’ve C finaled in the 200 free, B finaled in the 500 free, and placed 11th overall in the 1650 free. ASU has one sole returning scorer in the mile, and just two returning scorers in the 500, and Olszewski would’ve been their fastest 500 freestyler last season.
None of ASU’s current freshmen are particularly strong in distance, and Olszewski’s arrival on campus will be well-timed as the Sun Devils look to add distance threats to their arsenal.
“I chose ASU because of the world class coaching staff… I loved Bowman’s and the whole athletic staff’s vision for Sun Devil athletics.”
In addition to Olszewski, the ASU men’s class of 2020 includes 4-time Olympic Trials qualifier Zachary Poti, distance freestyler Sidney Kao, King Aquatic Club breaststroker James Scott, Norwegian freestyler Nils Lervik, and versatile talents Joe Molinari and Cameron Craig.
