This week’s athlete of the week is Olivia Thomas. She has been swimming on the Tyrone-Bellwood-BG swim team for four years.

“I have had a pretty good four years and I got a lot better at distance events,” said Thomas.

Her usual events include the medley relay, the 100 backstroke, and the 200 freestyle relay. Thomas’s best 100 time is 1:17.

The team as a whole, according to Thomas, is doing very well.

“We have a good chance to win the Mountain League,” said Thomas.
