Euro Jrs Gold Medalist Aleksas Savickas Verbally Commits to Florida for 2022-23

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.

Lithuanian breaststroker Aleksas Savickas has verbally committed to the University of Florida’s class of 2026.

“I’m incredibly excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at the University Of Florida. I want to say a big thank you to my family, girlfriend, friends, coaches, teammates and the Federation for believing in me and helping me achieve my goals! Also big thanks to UF coaches for making the recruitment process an absolute breeze! GO GATORS! 🐊🐊🐊”

Savikas swims for Panevėžio Žemyna-Sporto Gimnazija and on the Lithuanian National Team and specializes in breaststroke. He competed at European Junior Championships this summer in Rome, where he won the 200 breast (2:13.35) and was runner-up in the 100 breast (1:01.29). He also competed in the 50 breast, placing 15th in the semi-finals (28.88).

Best LCM times (converted to SCY):

  • 50 breast – 28.63 (24.89)
  • 100 breast – 1:01.29 (53.41)
  • 200 breast – 2:13.35 (1:56.53)

Savikas’ best times would have scored in the B final of the 200 breast and the C final of the 100 breast at 2021 SEC Championships. He would have been the second-fastest 100 breaststroker and the fourth-fastest 200 breaststroker on the Gators’ roster last year. He will overlap with Kevin Vargas (54.93/1:54.22), Amro Al-Wir (53.54/1:55.01), and Mateusz Dubas (54.39/1:55.31).

If you have a commitment to report, please send an email with a photo (landscape, or horizontal, looks best) and a quote to [email protected].

1:01.29 is more like a 52-mid.
