What does going to the Olympics mean for you? Going to the Olympics is a huge reward for a lot of hard work and dedication for all athletes. I am extremely proud to be representing my country at the highest level

How did you feel when you made the team? Winning the 100 free at trials was pure adrenalin. It was my goal and my dream to be the fastest swimmer in the country and to head to an Olympics with that title is a great confidence boost.

What are you looking forward to most about London? The racing for sure! I can't wait to dive in and see how fast I can swim.
