Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month Trailblazers: Torri Huske

Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month Trailblazers: Torri Huske

Despite being just 19 years old, Torri Huske has already seen some of the highest successes the sport has to offer. 

The American-record holder grew up in Arlington, Va., swimming for Arlington Aquatic Club. It was there where she set eight National Age Group records from 2019-2021, attended USA Swimming's National Diversity Select Camp, and qualifying for the 2019 FINA World Junior Championships in Budapest.

In Budapest, Huske erupted six medals—five gold and one silver—to lead the U.S.' 37-medal performance at the meet. After earning U.S. National Team honors, she continued to build momentum ahead of the postponed 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Swimming by winning two titles in Toyota U.S. Open competitions and six titles at the 2021 TYR 18&Under Spring Cup.

She entered last summer's Olympic Trials as one of the favorites to win the 100-meter butterfly and went on to touch first in an American-record time of 55.66, qualifying her for her first Olympic Team.

Huske swam in three finals at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, winning silver in the 4x100m medley relay and finishing fourth and fifth, respectively, in the 100m butterfly and 4x100m mixed medley relay. 

Now in her freshman year at Stanford, Huske helped the Cardinal to a title in the 4x200-yard freestyle relay while also finishing as runner-up in the 100y butterfly and 200y IM at March's NCAA Championships.

More recently, she qualified for the U.S. roster at the 2022 FINA World Championships, which take place this June in Budapest, Hungary. She is set to swim four individual events, making her one of only four Americans—joining Claire Curzan, Michael Andrew and Caeleb Dressel—who will take the blocks in four individual events in Budapest.
