Chelsea Chenault


Chenault has been known in swimming circles for nearly a quarter of her life, by virtue of her appearance at the 2008 Olympic Trials as only a 13-year-old. At the 2012 Trials, Chenault made the final of the 200-free. But she finished eighth in the event, leaving the Olympics to wait for at least another four years. Chenault has continued to produce among the top times in the nation for her age group, meaning she has a good shot of joining swimmers like Missy Franklin in Rio in 2016.
