COLUMBUS, Ohio – On the final day of competition at the 2022 Phillips 66 International Team Trials in Greensboro, N.C., Buckeyes Hunter Armstrong and Charlie Clark added to their incredibly successful week with school records in the 50 freestyle (22.00) and 800 freestyle (7:50.07), respectively. The duo will represent the United States at the 2022 FINA World Championships in Budapest this summer.

Clark finished off the meet with a second-place result in the 800 freestyle. His 7:50.07 finish lowers his previous school record by over eight seconds. The Sandusky, Ohio native earned two second-place results this week, including a school-record 1500 freestyle swim.

Armstrong knocked down a ten-year-old Ohio State record in the 50 freestyle by .11 seconds. He finished just one hundredth of a second behind the record in his prelim outing before racing to his fourth-place tying 22.00 in the A final.

Also racing on Saturday was Amy Fulmer in the 50 freestyle. She clocked a personal-best 25.60 in her prelim swim, just five hundredths of a second off the final cut.

Ohio State will have plenty of updates to make to the record board this summer as Armstrong and Clark combined to take down all but one freestyle school record at the trials. Fulmer added another in the 100 backstroke for the women for a total of eight long course records broken this week.
