COLUMBUS, Ohio – Hunter Armstrong was recognized Wednesday for his performance and success at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics with a House Resolution from Ohio State Rep. Brett Hillyer and State Senator Jay Hottinger.
“Hunter is an extraordinary talent and even better man and it was a joy to meet with him to hear about the trials and tribulations of an Olympic Athlete from my home district,” Hillyer said.
Armstrong, who competed for Team USA at the Olympic Games this past summer, swam in both the 100 Back and 4×100 Men’s Medley Relay in Tokyo. The junior made it to the semifinals of the 100 Back, but ultimately missed the final heat by just 0.01 seconds. For the second event of his Olympic debut, Armstrong raced on the men’s medley relay team. He helped qualify the United States for the finals, a race which the Americans went on to win in spectacular fashion. He has also been named to the 2021-22 USA National Men’s Team.
Aside from the House Resolution, Armstrong has been all over the state in recognition of his accomplishments at the Olympics as of late. He has spoken at numerous events, including the Pro Football Hall of Fame Luncheon, and was recognized at the Cleveland Browns game at FirstEnergy Stadium on Sept. 19.
