Two Former Mizzou Swimmers Head to Tokyo for 2020 Olympic Games

COLUMBIA, Mo. – Former Tigers Mikel Schreuders and Fabian Schwingenschloegl will travel to Tokyo for the 2020 Olympic Games. Shreuders will be representing Aruba while Schwingenschloegl will be swimming for the German National Team.

Schreuders currently holds Mizzou’s 200 freestyle record and was a part of the top 200 and 400 free relays. In the Tokyo Olympics, he will be competing in the 100m and 200m free for Aruba. He holds the Aruban records in the 50m, 100m, 200m, and 400m freestyle events. Schreuders competed at the 2016 Rio Olympics in the 200m free where he placed 45th overall. 

Schwingenschloegl will be competing in the 100m breast, 4x100m medley, and the 4x100m mixed medley. Earlier this year, he set the German record in the 100m breaststroke, which allowed him to qualify for the Olympic games. The time of 58.95 stands as the 11th-fastest time in the world this year in the 100m breaststroke. He earned a bronze medal with the German 4x100m medley team while at the European Aquatics Championships and will look to build upon that performance. The 2020 games will be his Olympic debut.

The 2020 Tokyo Olympics will be broadcast through NBC networks.
