    Concordia grad Brooks bound for Olympic swimming trials

    By Josh Ayen,


    INDIANAPOLIS (WANE) – Fort Wayne native Finn Brooks is set to celebrate his golden birthday during his most important swimming meet of his career.

    The Concordia High School grad is turning 21 on June 21, the same day he competes in the 100-meter butterfly at the U.S. Olympic trials in Indianapolis. Brooks is hoping to have a golden moment in his career when he swims at Lucas Oil Stadium.

    Brooks is one of a trio of northeast Indiana natives with ties to IU that are competing in the trials. Along with Brooks, Carroll High School grads Tristan and Mya DeWitt also qualified for the trials.

    Brooks is coming off his junior season in Bloomington. The Fort Wayne native qualified for the 100-meter butterfly after strong performances last summer at the TYR Pro Championships and Phillips 66 USA National Championships.

    While Brooks is soaking in his first Olympic qualifying experience, the Concordia grad is aiming to reach the 100-meter butterfly finals in Indianapolis. Thanks to help of his teammates in Bloomington, Brooks feels mentally locked in to handle the biggest stage in the young swimmer’s career.

    Brooks is set to compete in the 100-meter butterfly next Friday in Indianapolis. The trials run from Saturday through Sunday, June 23 at Lucas Oil Stadium.
