Vittorio Cappabianca Qualifies for Zone Select Camp



USA Swimming sponsors four Zone Select Camps in an effort to identify the emerging young athletes in each Zone and offer them a unique motivational and educational experience. The Zone Select Camps are viewed as an integral step for athletes to move from the local and Zone level onto to the national scene.

2019 Athlete Selection:
28 male and 28 female athletes are selected in each of the four Zones.

Initially, 14 athletes of each gender are selected based on 2018 Long Course Meters (LCM) IMX point scores according to the following:
Seven girls age 12 and seven boys age 13
Seven girls age 13 and seven boys age 14
Then, the fastest swimmer in each Zone in each Long Course Meters (LCM) Olympic event (including the 800 and 1500 for both genders) is invited for a total of 14 additional male and 14 additional female athletes. 

Vittorio qualified for the camp by having the 11th highest IMX score in the Central Zone earning him an automatic bid by scoring 4,575 power points for the 2018 long course season.
