How fast is fast? Swimming nearly 30 seconds for 30 straight laps – and still being more than 30 seconds off your goal time at the upcoming Tokyo Olympic Games.

But Jordan Wilimovsky makes it look (relatively) easy.

Olympic 10K Marathon Swim finalist Jordan Wilimovsky won the 1500m freestyle in a season best of 15:10​.44 at the 2021 TYR Pro Series at Mission Viejo, California. He is training to swim the 800m freestyle, 1500m freestyle, and the 10 km marathon swim in Tokyo – one of the most potentially challenging schedules at the Olympics.

Wilimovsky was joined in Mission Viejo by his female 10 km marathon swimming teammates in Haley Anderson and Ashley Twichell who both raced against Katie Ledecky, but who will both compete at the upcoming USA Olympic Swimming Trials:
