COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State senior Elliott Keefer is a rising star in the swimming world and this week he is profiled on in an article titled: “Elliott Keefer: Bright Future in the Water.”

Keefer has had a terrific year of swimming. Last summer, he posted a Top 3 finish at the ConocoPhillips USA Swimming National Championships in Irvine, Calif. The effort led to his making the 2010 Pan Pacific Championship Team and the U.S. National Team.
