Hali Flickinger will represent the United States in the 200 butterfly. The former Georgia Bulldog recalled the moment when she made the team, calling it “the best moment of my life.”

Flickinger describes the underdog feeling she has experienced so often in the sport. The 22 year old also talks about how she calms herself down for a race.
