Sims talks about crying before all of her races, less-than-ideal open water swims, and not realizing that prelims swimmers got medals too.
15-year old Katie Grimes, who was a US Olympian this summer in the pool, earned a big payday in Las Vegas over the weekend.
This weekend Sandpipers of Nevada will be hosting the Las Vegas Open Water Champions Cup, which will be serving as a US National Team selection race.
Tokyo Olympians Bella Sims and Katie Grimes threw down quick early-season times in Sandpipers’ dual meet with Boulder City Henderson.
Olympians Lydia Jacoby (pictured) and Torri Huske headlined the 2021 selection to the USA Swimming Scholastic All-American Team.
The defending SEC Champions from the University of Kentucky say that they have broken the ice on commitments from the class of 2023.

In spite of not being publicly named to the U.S. Olympic coaching staff, Sandpipers of Nevada coach Ron Aitken has been taken to Tokyo anyway.
During day 5 prelims, Lilly King (200 breast), Michael Andrew (200 IM), and the US women’s 800 free relay (Sims, Madden, McLaughlin, Forde) won their heats.
David Popovici of Romania may be just 16 years of age but he’s a force in the men’s 100m free. Find out when he swims here.
Aitken goes into full detail on what his 3 distance girls have been doing at the Olympic Training Camp (which he got to attend and coach at) in Hawaii
Five swimmers representing the Sandpipers of Nevada qualified for the USA’s Tokyo Olympic Team at Olympic Trials earlier this month.
Making the team after entering the meet seeded 39th, Sims is one of this years youngest Olympians that will represent the United States in Tokyo.
