AUSTIN, TexasArianna Vanderpool-Wallace accomplished in the pool what no Bahamian swimmer has ever done.The Bahamian “Golden Princess” captured Auburns’ first NCAA 100-yard freestyle title with a time of 47.07 seconds. This came two days after she won Auburn’s first 50 freestyle championship.

Wellington Miller, President of the Bahamas Olympic Committee said he was most impressed with Arianna’s progress over the past year as she prepares for the biggest challenge in London 2012. We in the BOC congratulate Ariana on her histotic performances, we are very proud of her.

“It feels awesome,” said Vanderpool-Wallace. “I’ve been working hard on my sprint events, the 50 and 100, so to come up with the national championship in both is pretty great. I knew I was going to have to do whatever I could to get my hand on the wall first. It was eight great girls in that race, so it was tough.”
