Watch Katie Ledecky, Michael Andrew, And Torri Huske Qualify For Tokyo 2020

2021 U.S. OLYMPIC SWIMMING TRIALS

On the second night of racing at the 2021 US Olympic Trials, 3 swimmers officially added their name to the country’s Olympic roster. In the women’s 400 freestyle Katie Ledecky delivered a commanding victory of 4:01.27 while Michael Andrew took the men’s 100 breast in a 58.73 and Torri Huske clinched women’s 100 butterfly gold with a 55.66 American record.

Those 3 swims were all under the required FINA A and mean that we will be seeing those 3 swimmers in Tokyo this summer. Check out their Olympic-qualifying race videos below, courtesy of NBC Sports:

Good thing MA is 6’6″. He needed it at the finish.

Man, Georgia has had a couple of heartbreakers. Margalis unexpectedly going Alain Bernard in the last 15 meters of the 400 IM, and Nic Fink semi-finaling a time that would’ve made the team if he duplicated it.

Thanks to the guy showing the races but it would be nice if he could comment without his face on the picture. 😆
