Crocs alum qualifies for the Olympics!
Castle Pines resident Abby Kochevar achieved her first Olympic Trial time in the 100-meter backstroke clocking in at 1:03.13. Kochevar began swimming at age nine and was breaking records with her summer swim team the Castle Crocs before moving on to swim for local club swim teams.
“My best event is the 100 backstroke, but my favorite is the 50-meter freestyle,” said Kochevar. Right now Kochevar is training hard and hopes to add another Olympic Trial time in the 50-meter freestyle event at 2015 Phillips 66 National Championships to be held in August.
