Sugar Land's Simone Manuel looks to swim her way to Rio Olympics
More races are set for Friday night, and hopefully more celebrations for a local swimmer from Sugar Land who's looking to go to Rio.
Simone Manuel will be racing in the finals of the 100 meter freestyle.
If she takes one of the two tops spots, she will be heading to Rio to represent Team USA.
This is her second shot at qualifying, after just missing out on a chance on Wednesday.
One local swimmer who we know is already going to the games is Cy Woods graduate Cammile Adams.
Adams won Thursday night's 200 meter butterfly to secure her second trip to the Olympics.
With the races taking place day after day, there's one important part that always has to be on point and working perfectly -- timing.
We spoke to one of the Omega Timing board members who talked about why everything has to be working like clockwork.
"You see, for us, it's the most important thing to give the right results to everyone who is participating here. And here there are 1,750 swimmers and each one has the right to get the right result. All around the world we are time keeping. But such a high level the Americans it's unbelievable," Peter Herzeler, an Omega Timing board member, said.
Manuel's race will happen Friday night and will air on KPRC Channel 2 News.
All the races get started a little before 7 p.m.
