Congratulations Eastern Zone Finalists!
The results are in for the 2021 Eastern Zone Virtual Age Group Championships! The meet represents swimmers across twelve states from Maine to Virginia. The Eastern Zone recognizes swimmers who place in the top 16 in each event.

Congratulations to Bruce Qian for earning a gold medal in the 10 & under 50 fly and a bronze in the 100 fly. Bruce also earned a fifth-place finish in the 100 IM, ninth in the 200 IM and fifteenth in the 100 breaststroke.

Bruce is joined by Denys Mialkovskyi who earned two top-16 finishes in the 13-14 age group. Denys earned 10th in the 200 backstroke, 13th in the 100 backstroke, and was the top 13-year-old finisher in both events. Great work, Denys and Bruce!
