MIAMI, FL, July 05, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Gulliver Swim Club's Jana Mangimelli recently competed at the 2013 Phillips 66 National Swimming Championships and U.S. World Championship Trials in Indianapolis. She placed fifth in the 200 individual medley with a time of 2:12.75. The time represents a personal best for Mangimelli by nearly a full second and places her 25th in the FINA world rankings.
Mangimelli's time was .64 seconds away from the 2nd place time of Olympic Gold Medalist Elizabeth Beisel from the University of Florida. Earlier in the competition, Mangimelli swam a personal best time of 2:31.14 in the 200 breaststroke and finished 14th in the event.
Mangimelli has been swimming for Gulliver since December 2012. In March, she was crowned the Speedo Sectional Champion in two individual events: the 200 individual medley and the 200 breaststroke. Mangimelli's 5th place finish at the World Championship Trials makes her eligible for a spot on the U.S. National Team. On September 2nd, USA Swimming will announce the National Team roster, which will include the top six swimmers from the combined results of this past week's 2013 Phillips 66 National Swimming Championships/U.S. World Championship Trials and the 2013 U.S. Open.
