Freshman Nick Rees (Nassau,Bahamas) earned a terrific honor April 1 at the U.S.S. Senior National Meet in Federal Way, Wash. The butterflyer nabbed a spot on his home country’s Olympic team and earned a ticket to the summer games in Sydney, Australia. Rees will represent the Bahamas in the 100-meter butterfly event during the 2000 Summer Olympics.
Rees’ time of 56.34 beat the qualifying time by .25 of a second. During his freshman career, Rees was a standout flyer for the Buckeyes.
