IC West Swimmer finishes 4th at the Olympic Trials

Posted: Updated:

Iowa City West's 16 year old Ruby Martin finished 4th in the 200 meter Butterfly Finals --just missing an Olympic berth by 2 places. Martin's 4th place finish in the race was even a great surprise to her.  She said her goal going into the Olympic Trials was just to make the semifinal round.

""That was the ultimate goal to make a semifinal and then to make a final---Nope--and then when I went into that race --I said I am going to make a little mini goal not to get eighth--to give me something to think about and then I get fourth and I teared up in front of the camera. I am in shock."

Martin who will be a junior in high school next fall, has yet to swim an event for her high school team.
