He is the first swimmer from the Greater Pensacola Aquatic Club (GPAC) to qualify to compete in the Olympic Team trials in 15 years.

Logan won his heat in the 200-meter butterfly, clinching his bid for team trials while also setting a new GPAC record.

The Booker T. Washington High School rising senior has been swimming with GPAC for seven years and has already committed to swim for Florida State University. He is coached by Greg Johnson.

The 2024 U.S. Olympic Team Trials in Swimming will be held in June 2024 in Indianapolis, Indiana. For the first time ever, the event will be staged on a football field, as Lucas Oil Stadium is tapped to host the Olympic-qualifying meet in front of hundreds of thousands of families, friends, and fans over a nine-day period.

The Olympic Trials, held every four years, rank as the most prestigious swimming event in the United States. The 2024 Olympic Trials will serve as the sole selection meet for the 2024 U.S. Olympic Swimming Team, which will represent Team USA in the pool competition in Paris, France.

GPAC’s Mission is to develop all levels of swimmers and instill values and life skills that foster success in all aspects of life. For more information on swimming lessons or advanced training, visit GPAC’s website here.
