For most, the approach of summer means the end of stress and the beginning of a careless couple of months before school starts up again in the fall, but for a select few on the FGCU swimming and diving team, summer means the beginning of crunch time to qualify for the summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Seniors Lani Cabrera and Karen Vilorio both have Olympic Qualifying “A” Time standard scores, which means they have the chance of representing their home countries in Rio if the opportunity arises. Currently, both Cabrera (Barbados) and Vilorio (Honduras) are first and second in point holders in the FINA world rankings.

If Cabrera and Vilorio end up representing their home countries this summer, they will become the first FGCU athletes to participate in the Olympics. The Olympic swim trials begin on June 26.
