Eight Bulldogs to Compete at U.S. Olympic Trials
Eight members of the Yale women’s swimming and diving team will be competing at the 2016 United States Olympic Trials in Omaha, Neb., starting this weekend. Three women will be new to the team for the 2016-2017 collegiate season: Kendall Brent and Ashley Pales are incoming freshmen and Destiny Nelson is a transfer student who will join the team this fall as a sophomore. The remaining five women are current members of the team. At the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials, the Bulldogs were represented by six competitors, so this year’s tally of eight is an improvement that is representative of the Bulldogs’ growing momentum. The U.S. Olympic Trials is one of the most competitive swimming events in the world, short of the Olympics themselves, and this opportunity is once-in-a-lifetime for the Bulldogs who will be competing. They will have the chance to race with the best in the nation at the highest level of competition, an experience which will also prove valuable as they head into the collegiate season in a few months.
