I would like to thank my coaches, especially Coach Andrew, Hector, Jeff, and Kristine for helping me get this far in my career. I would also like to thank my family for supporting me throughout the years. Finally, I would like to thank Coach Dan and Coach Neil for offering me this special opportunity to swim at the Farm. Go Card!!!!”

Li does his club swimming with Rose Bowl Aquatics and most recently finished seventh in the 100m breast at Junior Nationals after taking 17th in the 200m breast at Phillips 66 Nationals. He was the runner-up in the 100 breast at Juniors West in December where he also took fourth in the 200 breast.
