This is super impressive.

In a video posted online by UB Communications, head coach Andy Bashor explains how quite a few members from the UB swim team will prepare to face the nation’s best. Seven swimmers and one diver from this year’s squad have qualified for the U.S. Olympic trials. According to Bashor, this is the first year they’ve even had one player qualify.

The U.S. Olympic team trials for swimming will be held June 25 to July 2 in Omaha, Neb. For more information on the trials, you can visit the USA Swimming website.

Take a look at the video below to see how these impressive UB athletes are training to land a spot on Team USA.
