BBST Sprinter Korbin Vera Commits to NYU (2021)

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.

Bellingham Bay Swim Team’s Korbin Vera has committed to NYU for fall 2021. He’s a senior at Bellingham High School in Washington state.

I am so incredibly excited to be attending NYU Tandon for engineering. I am thrilled to continue my swimming career at my dream school in my dream city!


  • 50 free – 21.01
  • 100 free – 47.23
  • 200 free – 1:46.40
  • 100 back – 52.47

Vera is primarily a sprinter. The last high school state meet he competed in was the 2019 Washington 2A Championships, where he went 21.65 in the 50 free to finish runner-up.

NYU is a Division III powerhouse. At the 2020 UAA Championships, where they placed third as a team, Vera would’ve been .02 off of making the 50 free A-final. Vera would’ve been #4 on the NYU roster in the 50 free last season, and that event is where he’ll have an immediate impact on their program.
