PRESS RELEASE – Guam Swimming Federation (GSF) today announced Team Guam selection for the 19th FINA World Championships.

“It was an exciting morning having the swimming community come together for this time trial, after years of setbacks due to pool closures and COVID restrictions. Despite these challenges, Guam swimmers have continued to find ways to train and prepare themselves for the highest levels of competition,” said Ed Ching, GSF President. “We will take advantage of this and every opportunity to push our swimmers to compete, elevate the sport and represent Guam.

Benjamin Ko and Mia Lee will make their FINA debut at the World Championships in June. Tamuning resident and a junior at John F. Kennedy High School (JFK), Ko enjoys music and reading novels.  Mia Lee is set to be the youngest female to ever represent Guam at the FINA World Championships.
