Jessica Victorious Twice at US Olympic Trials
Monday, June 25, 2012 to Monday, July 02, 2012
Jessica completed competition at the 2012 US Olympic Trials in Omaha, NE, ending with two individual wins (50m & 100m freestyles) and earning a relay birth (400m freestyle relay) for the London Olympic Games.
She started the meet with a disappointing third place finish in the 100m breaststroke, with a time of 1:06.53, but quickly bounced back in the 100m freestyle. She swam a lifetime best time of 53.96 to win the individual event, qualifying her to swim it individually and on the 400m freestyle relay. She then completed a sweep of the sprint freestyle events by winning the 50m freestyle on the final night of competition, in a time of 24.50.
Jessica has gone through one of the most difficult journeys in history to qualify for “the Team,” and she appreciates the support from each and every one of you immensely as her dreams are coming true this summer.
