Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics 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.

Arianna Ottavianelli of Bettendorf High School and the Iowa Flyers Swim Club in Iowa City, Iowa has announced her verbal intention to swim for Florida State in the fall of 2020. Primarily a breaststroker, Ottavianelli will get to train with the group that produced ACC 100 yard breaststroke bronze medalist Ida Hulkko, however with the news that Hulkko will be redshirting this season, there is still speculation on whether or not she will be back to train with Ottavianelli at all.

At the 2019 Iowa Swimming Long Course Championships over the summer, Ottavianelli took 4th place in the 100 LCM butterfly (1:05.36), 7th in the 200 LCM IM (2:30.98), and 8th place in the 100 LCM breast (1:18.90). She also was the Iowa High School State Championship meet runner up in the 200 yard IM (2:03.16) and took 4th place in the 100-yard breaststroke (1:04.20) as well.

Best Times in Yards:

  • 100 breast – 1:03.69
  • 200 breast – 2:24.07
  • 200 IM – 2:03.16

Ottavianelli joins Hungarian sprint freestyler and breaststroker Zsofia Kurdi and distance freestyle main Carson Kaufmann as members of the class of 2024 for the Seminoles.
