The aquatics competition at World Games is one of endurance and toughness. Jenny showed that and more, racing 8 times over 6 days. She had a tough back-to-back on Day 5 that may have prevented a fourth medal. Overall though, Jenny BROUGHT IT all week and earned a lot of hardware that’ll last a lifetime. We are so incredibly proud of her.

Jenny was also featured in the Los Angeles Daily News!
