Charlotte Hook takes the bronze

Competing in the 2019 FINA World Junior Swimming Championships, in Budapest, Hungary, Charlotte Hook '21 earned a bronze medal in the Women's 200M Butterfly. Hook, who already made waves in July, becoming the all-time third-fastest 15-16 year old woman in U.S. swimming history, missed out on the Junior World Championships silver by .07 seconds, finishing in 2:09.00. Following her performance, Hook is now qualified for the U.S. national team, based on her Women's 200m Butterfly time being in the top six times for all U.S. female swimmers, regardless of age. Hook will compete for a spot on the U.S. Olympic team in June 2020.
