Youth Olympic Games
RINGQUIST to swim for USA at 2010 Youth Olympic Games in Singapore
Hillsboro HEAT Swimmer Austin Ringquist has been selected by USA Swimming to participate in the 2010 Youth Olympic Games taking place in Singapore from August 14th – 26th.
Austin’s time and world ranking in the 200m BK from summer ’09 made him eligible for this honor. This will be the inaugural year of the Youth Olympics. There will be an estimated 3600 athletes aged 14 to 18 representing 205 National Olympic Committees competing in 26 sports. In swimming, each country is limited to a maximum of 4 men and 4 women to represent them in the pool. Austin’s selection as one of only 4 young men to represent the USA is, and will be, a very great experience and honor. Please join me in wishing Austin the best of luck representing USA and the HEAT come August. Go USA!
