Granite Bay's Haley Anderson to compete in Olympic qualifiers

Granite Bay's Haley Anderson will compete in the FINA Olympic Marathon Swim Qualifier June 9 in Setubal, Portugal.

Anderson, a junior at USC, qualified for the event by finishing second in the recent USA 10K National Championship in Fort Myers, Fla. Duke graduate Ashley Twichell won the event.

At the FINA qualifier, Anderson will battle to be one of 15 women (only one qualifies per country) to compete in the London Olympics.

In addition to her open water pursuits, Anderson will compete at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials from June 25-July 2 in Omaha, Neb.

Anderson, who swam for Granite Bay High School, won the NCAA and Pac-12 women's 500 free championships earlier this year.

Anderson's sister, Alyssa, a senior at Arizona, also has qualified for the Olympic Trials.
