Zock ’21 & Kim ’21 Compete at Olympic Qualifiers
Josh Zock ’21 and Tyler Kim ’21, former members of the Army Men's Swimming and Diving Team, competed in the first wave of the U.S. Olympic qualifier last weekend at the CHI Health Center.
“Tyler and Josh stepped up on the biggest stage of their competitive swimming careers and swam well and competed as they always do – with everything they've got,” Army head coach Brandt Nigro said. “I'm proud of the work and resiliency it took for them to make it to Omaha. They represented themselves, their families, our program, West Point, and the US Army in such a positive manner.”
Zock competed in the 50m freestyle, finishing with a time of 23.52. Kim placed 23rd in the 200m backstroke with a time of 2:02.44.
“They will certainly remember this meet and the experience for the rest of their lives,” Nigro added. “As a program working to elevate it's competitiveness across the board – Tyler and Josh have certainly opened the door for the up and coming folks who look up to them. I'm already excited for 2024 and can't wait to get back to Olympic Trials with many more cadet-athletes.”
