Door County YMCA's ​Max McHugh​ ​is no stranger to success in the pool. But the YMCA national champion is not even the fastest swimmer in his own family... ​yet.​​

In a day and age when swimmers are committing to colleges earlier and earlier, McHugh has already given a verbal commitment to the University of Minnesota for the fall of 2018 -- where his older brother ​Conner McHugh​ is currently a rising senior.​ Max will join the team just after Conner's graduation.

The McHugh brothers are both breaststroke specialists. As a matter of fact, in the short course yards pool they have very similar times. Conner is a 52.3/1:53.6 breaststroker, while Max is 52.4/1:55.3 -- exceptional times for a junior in high school.

But right now, Max's focus in the long course pool -- specifically the 2017 YMCA Long Course National Championships in Greensboro, NC, on July 31 to August 4, where he will be looking to defend his titles with another sweep in the 50/100/200m breaststroke events.

McHugh is currently the top seed in the 200m breaststroke (2:18.49), 50m breaststroke (28.06), and the 100m breaststroke (1:03.60). Although McHugh is entered with a 1:03.60 in the 100m, his best time is 1:02.73 -- 0.07 under the current YMCA record. The most impressive, however, is his 50m breaststroke, an event in which he is the top seed by ​over two seconds. To put that into perspective, his 50m time (as it stands) would have been just a matter of tenths away from qualifying for the semifinals at the 2017 FINA World Championships.

​​Max McHugh is just one of multiple swimmers preparing for success at the 2017 YMCA LC National Championships. Check out the full psych sheet below and prepare yourself for five days of extraordinary racing from some of the best 18-and-under swimmers in the country.

On the front page of USA Swimming's website is a ticking clock: a live countdown to the U.S. Olympic Team Trials to be held June 13-20, 2021. That competition will get Team USA ready for the subsequent 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, the Games that were, of course, delayed a year by the coronavirus pandemic that swept the world, and which is still greatly changing life in the United States.

Para-Swimmer Roderick Sewell Is Redefining 'Multi-Sport Athlete'

Roderick Sewell

This year's Ironman world championships, held in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, were grueling by any standard of measure: a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile ride. For any person of any athletic ability at any point in history, a feat of that magnitude would be impressive — but what about a double above-the-knee amputee?

Just about everybody is hoping pools don't close (or stay closed) for the summer due to the continued fallout from COVID-19. We know summer without the water can be a difficult task for many, especially parents with kids, but you know who needs the water most of all? Swimmers, that's who.
