After Almost 8 Years of Retirement, Brent Hayden Hits Olympic "A" time
March 8, 2020—
36-year old Canadian swimmer Brent Hayden hit his Olympic “A” time on Saturday in the 50 free, swimming a 21.97 to finish 3rd on Saturday at the Pro Swim Series meet in Des Moines. Hayden, the Canadian Record holder in the 50, 100, and 200 freestyles, swam his first race since returning to training in January, where he swam 22.34 in the 50 free. Then in February, in Vancouver, he swam a 22.31. On Saturday, Hayden blew the doors open and slid under the Olympic “A” time of 22.01. The time does not officially select Hayden for the Olympic Team.
