Hali Flickinger

CONGRATULATIONS Hali!

After a great preliminary swim in the 200 Butterfly on August 9, 2016, Hali qualified for the Semi-Final as the 2nd seed.  Haley finished 6th that evening in the semi-final which earned her a spot in the 200 Butterfly finals.  On August 10, 2016 Hali finished 7th in her finals swim in the Olympic Games in Rio.  We are very proud of Hali and enjoyed watching one of our own accomplishing a life long goal. 

REPORTED EARLIER - On June 30, 2016 at the US Olympic Team Swimming Trials in Omaha Nebraska, York YMCA Swimming and Georgia Bulldogs alum Hali Flickinger qualified for the 2016 US Olympic Swimming Team! Hali is from Spring Grove, PA.  After swimming with York YMCA, Hali went on to swim for the Georgia Bulldogs winning three National Championships. 

We at York YMCA Swimming are very proud of Hali's great achievement.  We will be your biggest fans as you head to Rio to represent the United States of America at the Olympic Games!  Good Luck Hali!
