NEW COMMIT: The University of Florida has landed their first verbal commitment for their class of 2025 from distance swimmer Oskar Lindholm of Højbjerg, Denmark.

Lindholm swims year-round with Aarhus Swim and has represented Denmark internationally. He recently earned two best times at the Danish Team Championships in December and competed in the 1500m free at the LEN European SCM Championships last year. Last spring, he finished third in the 800m free at the Danish Open behind national record-holder Anton Ipsen and national junior record-holder Alexander Norgaard.
