Guam’s Ken Barcinas only has one goal, to represent Guam in the 2020 Olympics in Japan. On his journey to meet olympic qualifying times, Barcinas accomplished another feat, which was becoming an All-American Masters in Swimming after placing 1st in two events in 2018 of 534 swimmer.

Barcinas received his letter in the mail from US Masters Swimming (25-29 age bracket) to acknowledge his accomplishments.

“Leading up to this I was bummed that I couldn’t represent and compete in the 2018 Pan Pacific Championships over the summer and also qualify for Summer Nationals out here in the mainland, but I just stayed positive and do what I do best, swim fast,” said Barcinas via social media messaging.

Barcinas took to social media sharing his letter from US Masters reminding the dream chasers to keep chasing and never give up!

Ken Barcinas shares a photo on his Instagram account (@guamgori) to ring in 2019.
