COLUMBIA CITY â Haley Richter can âflyâ in the pool. Literally.
Richter will be competing in the Olympic trials Monday in Omaha, Nebraska in the 100-meter butterfly.
She qualified by meeting the qualifying time (101.99) by just a fraction of a second, 1:01.5.
Though Richter said she doesnât expect to place in the top two to make it to the Olympics, sheâs excited about the experience.
âItâs going to be so fun. Iâm so excited,â Richter said.
Richter said sheâs seeded around 80th place. Her time, 101.5, wouldâve been good for the world record in 1974. The record in â74 was 101.88.
