WORRELL WITHDRAWS FROM 50 METER FREESTYLE -- SUNDAY CARDINAL COUPLE
ALREADY HEADED TO RIO, KELSIWHIRL BACKS OUT OF 50 FREE FINALS
The tweet from UofL Swim&Dive was simple...but to the point:
It's understandable when you think about it. She had qualified eighth out of eight out of one of the semifinal heats. To actually win the finals might have been asking her body to do a little bit more than it was ready for...it's been a busy week for her with winning the 100 meter fly and participating in other heats and semifinals in several events after that.
Sometimes the mind is willing but the body tells you "unh uh...let's sit one out."
Kelsi Worrell is headed to Rio, though. The first UofL American swimmer to ever qualify for the Olympics.
Based on the meteoric rise of the UofL swimming program over the last 12 years under the coaching of Arthur Albiero...we're confident it won't be the Cards last...
CARDINAL COUPLE RADIO HOUR
We were back at it again in "the basement on the Hill" for another show at Crescent Hill Radio/WCHQ 100.9 FM yesterday.
Another fun broadcast as we discussed Louisville women's basketball, Pat Summitt, Kelsi Worrell and Louisville women's swimming and Louisville Volleyball. We sampled audio from Jeff Walz, Tess Clark and Janelle Jenkins.
Don't just take our (and their) word on it. Have a listen to the rebroadcast. Take the WorldWide Quiz. Link below:
