NYC Breaststroker Kimberly Dutta Commits to MIT for Fall 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.

Kimberly Dutta of the 92Y Dolphins in New York City has committed to MIT this fall.

“I am thrilled to announce my commitment to swim and study at MIT this fall! The combination of incredible academics and a dedicated team makes me extremely excited to be one of their top breaststrokers next year. Go Tech!!”


  • 100 breast – 1:04.20
  • 200 breast – 2:19.41
  • 100 fly – 56.51
  • 200 IM – 2:08.75
  • 100 free – 52.97

Coincidentally, Dutta clocked lifetime bests in all of the events above (except for the 200 IM) at the 2019 MIT Invitational in December. At that meet, she finished third in both breaststrokes and fifth in the 100 fly.

MIT’s deep breaststroke group is led by sophomore Edenna Chen, who has lifetime bests of 1:01.2/2:14.7 in the breaststroke events. During the 2019-20 season, MIT’s last full/official season due to the pandemic, Dutta would’ve ranked third on MIT’s roster in both breaststrokes. She would’ve also been their #2 100 butterflier.

Dutta would’ve finished well in the A-finals at the 2020 NEWMAC Championships in both breaststrokes and the 100 fly, her 200 breast time good enough to have granted her a runner-up finish behind Chen.

Dutta joins Jolie Kim in MIT’s incoming class this fall.
