MANILA, Philippines – Matapos ang ilang buwang pamamahinga dahil sa COVID-19 pandemic, muling sasabak sa Olympic qualifying tournament sina PH swimmers Jaimie Deiparine at Remedy Rule sa TYR Pro Swim Series na gaganapin sa March 3 hanggang 7 sa North East ISD Blossom Athletic Complex sa San Antonio, Texas.

“Hopefully this swimming event will be the first Olympic qualifying tournament for Remedy and Jaimie  this year,” ani Philippine swimming federation chief Lani Velasco.

“Since the competition is an Olympic qualifying event, swimming meet organizers are pretty strict about allowing foreigners to participate. So we practically pleaded with them to enable our swimmers to compete in San Antonio.”

Target ni Deiparine, nagwagi ng gold at silver medals sa 2019 Southeast Asian Games sa New Clark City Aquatic Stadium sa Capas, Tarlac, ang Olympic slot sa men’s 100-meter breaststroke event.

Gumawa ang dating California Polytechnic State varsity swimming ace ng SEA Games at national record na 1 minute at .01.46 seconds upang makuha ang kanyang unang gold medal sa regional sportsfest na kapos ng kaunti sa Olympic qualifying standard na 59.93 seconds.

Sinisilip din ni Rule, dating miyembro ng University of Texas Longhorns women’s swimming squad, ang Olympic slot sa paglangoy nito sa 100 and 200 meter women’s butterfly races. Rico Navarro
