Good luck to Palmetto Bay’s own Michael Saco, a local student who currently a student athlete at Louisiana State University. It is worth the time to review this entire Miami Herald article about completing for the chance to represent the United States in the Olympics this Summer in Great Britain.
Success in swimming is nothing new for young Saco. He won a state championship and set a state record during his senior season at Palmetto High. Sports run in the family. His mother, Dacyl Saco, competed as a member of the Venezuelan Olympic swim team at the 1976 Montreal Olympics.
The U.S. Olympic swimming trials begin Monday, and as the Herald reports, several South Florida swimmers will compete for a spot on the world’s most esteemed swim team.
Good luck Michael Saco!
