KELSI WORRELL – “It was truly a 2015 to remember for Kelsi Worrell, as she claimed NCAA, Pan American Games and Phillips 66 National Championships titles in the 100 butterfly. Worrell won an NCAA title and set an American record in the 100y fly for the University of Louisville in March, becoming the first woman to break the 50-second mark. Worrell did not disappoint in her international debut at Pan Ams in Toronto, where she set a Games record and notched the third-fastest time in the world in 2015 with a 57.24 effort in the 100m fly prelims. She went on to win gold in the event and added two relay medals. Worrell followed with a victory in the 100m fly at the Phillips 66 National Championships.”
