OMAHA, NEBRASKA (June 29, 2012) Two Houston area and Gulf LSC swimmers have punched their tickets to the XXX Olympic Games in London.

Cammile Adams of Cypress, Texas and Breeja Larson of Mesa, Arizona, both of whom swim for Texas A and M University, have made the United States Olympic Swimming Team and will compete in London.

Breeja won the women’s 100-meter breaststroke in the time of 1:05.92, just touching out current world record holder Rebecca Soni by .07.

Her time ranks her second in the world this year and the 12th fastest of all time.

Breeja is the first Aggie swimmer to qualify for the U.S. Olympic team in an individual event.

Not to be outdone, Cammile Adams also earned her rings by winning the 200-meter butterfly.

Her time of 2:06.52 ranks sixth in the world for 2012 and makes her the second Aggie ever to make the U.S. Olympic swimming team in an individual event.

In addition, Erika Dittmer of Spring, Texas along with Rita Medrano and Lili Ibanez will be representing Mexico in London.

They were named to the squad at the Mexican Olympic Trials in early June.

All five young ladies are coached by Steve Bultman.
