What a swim! Alex Gadegaard Shah, a Snow Leopard from the Class of 2021, produced a remarkable performance at the Tokyo Olympics on Tuesday with a personal best time of 53.41, breaking his own national record by almost three seconds! Very quick off the blocks, Alex was smooth through the water and turned first at the 50-meter mark, before storming home to win his heat by almost a second! After his race, Alex said: “Thank you, everyone, for tuning in and watching me swim. I am so grateful for all the support I’ve received in the last couple of days, and it has helped me push through in the pool.” Congratulations, Alex, we couldn’t be prouder!
