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.
Elijah Chen, a current high school senior from San Francisco, California, has committed to swim for Division III Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. Chen will graduate from Lowell High School in spring 2020 and join the Thunder’s class of 2024.
Chen is a current swimmer for the Fog City Hammerheads and is a Far Western and California CIF State Championship qualifier.
“I’m excited to begin the next chapter of my life at Wheaton College (IL). Looking forward to being challenged athletically, academically and in my faith! The Lord has blessed me with this awesome opportunity.”
At the 2020 CCIW Swimming and Diving Championships, Chen would have had multiple finals performances with his current best times. He would have placed 5th in the 200 freestyle, and this performance would have ranked him as Wheaton’s 2nd fastest 200 freestyler behind Thunder senior Micah Kimel (1:43.38).
He also would have placed 12th in the 100 freestyle (49.14) and 15th in the 50 freestyle (22.58).
Best SCY Times:
- 50 freestyle – 22.58
- 100 freestyle – 49.14
- 200 freestyle – 1:48.59
At the CCIW Championships, the Thunder placed 2nd as a team.
