Seward’s Jacoby swims against world's best in Indiana

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - Indiana's Counsilman Classic attracted some of the best swimmers in the world, and that included Seward’s Tsunami Swim Club’s Lydia Jacoby.

The 15-year-old Jacoby swam a personal best 1:10.11 in the 100m breast stroke, taking fifth overall. In her heat was Olympic gold medalist Lilly King who finished with a time of 1:07.33. King currently holds the world record in the 100m breast stroke with a time of 1:04.13.

Last December, Jacoby qualified for the 2020 Olympic trials in Omaha, Nebraska.
