Arlington swimmers Torri Huske and Eli Martin will be participating in the upcoming U.S. Olympic swimming trials, hoping to earn a spot on the U.S. team for the 2024 Summer Games next month in Paris.

The trials are June 15-23 in Indianapolis.

Huske, a Yorktown High School graduate, is hoping to make her second U.S.  Olympic women’s swimming team. In the last summer Olympics she swam on a silver-medal relay for the U.S. and finished fourth individually in the 100 butterfly.

Huske, a student at Stanford University, is the current American record-holder in the 100 and 50-meter butterfly races. At the 2022 Fina World Swimming Championships in Hungary, Huske won six medals, three golds and three bronze.

At Yorktown, Huske won multiple district, region and state individual championship, helping the team to multiple team titles in those competitions.

Martin is graduating from Washington-Liberty High School this week. He will try to qualify for the U.S. men’s Olympic swimming team in 200-meter breaststroke. His qualifying time was 2:14.5.

Martin was a standout swimmer in multiple types of races for W-L for four seasons. This past winter, Martin was a Class 6 boys state champion in the 100 breaststroke, and was second in the state in the individual medley.

Martin set a handful of team records for the W-L boys team. He will swim in college at Virginia Tech, and possibly for the Arlington Forest Tigers of the Northern Virginia Swimming League this summer once the U.S. Trials are completed and depending on if he makes the Olympic team.

Martin holds various records for the Tigers, as well. He also swims year round for the Arlington Aquatic Club.
