Halle Morris My First Olympic Trials

Halle Morris My First Olympic Trials

By Cassidy Lavigne, Swimming World College Intern

Halle Morris, 17, has qualified to swim the 100 and 200 breaststroke at next month’s Olympic Trials. Morris is just finishing her junior year at Terra Linda High School and final preparations for her first Olympic Trials. A dedicated swimmer at North Bay Aquatics in Marin County, California, Morris recently won first place in her short course 100 breaststroke at the North Coast Section Meet and again at the California CIF State Championship meet. I sat down with Morris and asked about her thoughts going into her first Olympic Trials.

HM: This is my first time qualifying so I’m super pumped. I qualified in my 100 breast the summer after my freshman year and then this last March I qualified for my 200 breast. So it’s been a long wait of excitement. When I first qualified I didn’t know I got the cut because they hadn’t released the time standards yet. So when I got it I was like, “Oh hey that’s a best time!” and then I found out it was the Olympic trials cut, so it’s exciting!

There’s not really much pressure on me, I’m just gonna go out there and have some fun and try my best. My goal is to make semi-finals in at least one of my races, I think that’d be awesome, and of course to get best times. I want to present myself to colleges and hopefully be recruited.
