Sunset Mesa distance swimmer Jordan Wilimovsky won the men’s 1500-meter freestyle race at the U.S. Swimming Championships in Irvine two weeks ago.
Wilimovsky’s time (14:48.89) was the fifth-fastest in the world this year and three seconds off his personal best. The 24-year-old Team Santa Monica distance swimmer also won the men’s 10K at the 2018 USA Open Water Nationals in May at Town Lake in Tempe, Arizona.
Wilimovsky did his community proud at the 2016 Olympics in Brazil, taking fourth place in the 1,500 freestyle and fifth in the 10K Open Water swim.
