Hannah Cox qualifies for Olympic trials

HARTFORD—Upper Valley Aquatic Club’s own Hannah Cox has qualified in the women’s 200 free-style with the time of 2:01.80 posted at the USA Swimming Junior Nationals this August in Irvine, Calif. This means that she will be going to Olympic trials in 2016.

“As her coach we are thrilled to get this one under her belt,” said Dorsi Raynolds, UVAC head swim coach. “I’m more motivated than ever to push her to train hard over the course of the next two years to qualify in at least three or four more events. She has a gift and she is pursuing her potential with a fierce work ethic and mental dedication second to none!”

Hannah Cox learned to swim at the Woodstock Rec Pool when she was 2 years old and has taken to the water ever since. She became a Vermont State Champion at age 8 and has continued to excel.
