Recap of the Trials

ByJeff Dugdale

 

With six swimmers on the 2016 Olympic Team roster, SwimMAC Carolina and head coach David Marsh have become a force to be reckoned with, in and out of the pool. Cammile Adams, Anthony Ervin, Katie Meili, Kathleen Baker and Jimmy Feigen impressed the roaring Omaha crowds last week with their captivating performances in the water, earning them each a spot on Team USA.
SwimMAC comprises 13% of the 2016 Olympic Team roster, creating a spotlight for success for the North Carolina-based club. Marsh has also coached the likes of previous Olympic stars such as Cullen Jones  and Micah Lawrence.


Cammile Adams has become the United States’ top 200m butterflyer since she won this event at Trials in meet-record time in 2012. Since then, she has gone on to finish fifth in the 200m fly at the Olympic Games in London, first at the 2014 Pan Pacific Championships and second at the 2015 FINA World Championships. Her time at Trials in the 200m fly made her the seventh-fastest swimmer in the world this year in that event.


Kathleen Baker’s progression to the Olympic games started with an eighth place finish at the 2015 FINA World Championships in the 100m back, and was ninth in the 100m back at the 2014 Pan Pacific Championships. In addition, she was a silver medalist in the 200m free relay and was sixth in the 100m back at the 2014 FINA Short Course World Championships. She qualifies for her first Olympic Team with a second place finish in the 100m backstroke with a time of 59.29.
Katie Meili won gold in the 100m breaststroke and 400m medley relay at the 2014 Pan American Games, as well as a gold swimming in the prelims of the 400m free relay. Meili punched her ticket to the 2016 Olympic Games in the 100m breaststroke, finishing second and swimming the fourth fastest time in the world this year.


Having joined SwimMAC within the last year, Anthony Ervin made a name for himself at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, where he tied Gary Hall Jr. for gold in the 50m freestyle and won silver as a member of the 400m free relay team. After a long hiatus from the sport, Ervin returned to Trials in 2012, where he finished second in the 50m free and earned his spot on the roster in London. He was fifth in that event at the 2012 Games. Since then, he’s won silver in the 400m free relay at the 2013 FINA World Championships and silver in the 50m free at the 2014 Pan Pacific Championships. He will be competing in his third Olympic Games in the 50m freestyle and 400m freestyle relay after placing fourth in the 100m freestyle and second in the 50m freestyle at 2016 Olympic Trials.


Jimmy Feigen, a member of the 2012 Olympic Team, won silver swimming in the prelims of the 400m free relay. In 2013, he won silver in the 100m free and the 400m free relay at the 2013 FINA World Championships. He will be representing team USA in the 400m freestyle relay this summer after finishing in the top 6 in the 100m freestyle at Olympic Trials.
