Undersized and understated, Jordan Wilimovsky, Northwestern’s world champion, goes for Olympic gold

When he jumped in the water at the 2015 World Championships in Kazan, Russia, Jordan Wilimovsky’s goal was to finish in the top 10. The Olympics were just over a year away, and Wilimovsky knew that if he snagged a top-10 result, he would secure his spot on the United States’ team in Rio de Janeiro.

Nearly two hours later, the rising Northwestern senior was a world champion. He blew away the competition to win the 10 kilometer open water swim by around 12 seconds, the largest margin in the history of the event. Three months after his 21st birthday, the unassuming Wilimovsky had not only secured his Olympic berth, he established himself as the best open water swimmer in the world.

Jordan Wilimovsky, Haley Anderson Lead USA Swimming Open Water National Team

USA Swimming has announced the 12 members of the 2016-2017 Open Water National Team.

Olympic qualifiers Haley Anderson, Sean Ryan, and Jordan Wilimovsky lead the team.

Andrew Gemmell, the 10K national champion is also on the men’s team, as is National Champion Ashley Twichell on the women’s.

The other three men are Alex Meyer, Brendan Casey, and David Heron.

Lynne Cox, Famed Open Water Swimmer, Authors Opinion Piece In NY Times Regarding Rio Waters

With fewer than 100 days left until the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro there is still growing concern regarding the open water races to be held in Guanabara Bay and off of nearby Copacabana Beach.

Lynne Cox, famed open-water swimmer, became the most recent individual to wave a red flag at the conditions today by authoring an opinion piece for the New York Times titled  “Olympians Shouldn’t Swim Through Sewage.”  Cox draws in research and reports from virologist Dr. Fernando Rosado Spilki and expert in risk management for waterborne viruses Kristina Mena, whose findings paint a dim picture for those hoping to participate in the open water competition.
