It's a night Keri Hehn has become familiar with, the night before trying to qualify for the US Olympic team. The Fargo North grad and former gopher swimmer will compete in the 100 meter breastroke tomorrow night in Omaha, and later swim in the 200 breastroke.
This is her 4th time at the Olympic trials. She nearly made the Olympic team 4 years ago, finishing 4th in the 200 breaststroke. Now, at 31-years old she is forgetting about the pressure, and is just going to race.
Keri Hehn: “I was reading an article that once you get there you need to put goals aside and you just need to race. Which I thought was a really smart quote that I read cause I think when you get there all of a sudden you change your goals and change your expectations. I just want to put together good races and swim to my potential.”
Keri's brother Ronnie had the 139th fastest time tonight in the 100 meter breaststroke, but will not advance to the semifinals.
