AHS Senior, Simone Manuel, Competes on World Stage
December 21, 2013
The USA Team is taking on an entire roster of European swimmers in a meet named “Duel in the Pool” in Scotland. This meet occurs every year and is sponsored by Mutual of Omaha. Our very our AHS Senior, Simone Manuel, is competing in the 50 & 100 meter freestyles. Below is a description I read this morning as quoted from SwimSwam.com on Simone :
The name on the U.S. roster with a lot of intrigue is Simone Manuel. Only 17 years old and still a high school senior, Manuel is a fresh face on the international scene and a rising swimmer with tremendous and visible talent. Her 50 free from Worlds (where she took 7th) this past summer sits 12th in the world for 2013, and though the top 3 European threats still outrank her, if you’re guessing which swimmer is most likely to pop of a huge time drop, you could do a lot worse than to bet on the 17-year-old who’s still adjusting to international competition and meters swimming.
