ODA Athlete Swims at 2022 FINA World Championships

Ryan Kohn - Observer
Felipe Baffico Balharry '23 competed against elite swimmers in the 100-, 200-meter butterfly events in Budapest, Hungary.
ODA's Felipe Baffico Balharry '23 shared the pool with 2020 U.S. Olympians Kieran Smith and Nic Fink during the 2022 FINA World Championships held in Budapest's Duna Arena. He set a new personal record in the 200 meter butterfly, finishing in 2:01.99.

He next heads to the 2022 USA Futures Swimming Championships July 27-30 in Greensboro, North Carolina. After that event, he will continue training for the FINA World Junior Championships in August. Baffico Balharry said he would like to make the finals in the 200 meter butterfly at World Juniors, which will likely require a sub-2:00 time.
