Wakeland swimmer Conor McKenna has qualified for the first wave of Olympic trials and is scheduled to compete in the 200-meter butterfly on Friday (June 4) in Omaha, Neb.
McKenna will compete in the preliminaries Friday morning at approximately 10 a.m., and the race will be streamed at www.usaswimming.org/watch. If McKenna qualifies for the finals that evening, the race is expected to be televised live by NBC at approximately 7 p.m. It will also be streamed at www.NBCOlympics.com.
McKenna, a rising senior who is the two-time defending 5A state champion in the 100-yard butterfly, helped the Wakeland boys team win a 5A state team championship in February. In addition to winning the state championship in the butterfly, McKenna was third in the 200 freestyle and helped two Wakeland relay teams win medals.
Congratulations to McKenna – and good luck!
