Swim: Record Breaking Brotman leads Viking’s bright future

For La Jolla High School swimmer Arielle Brotman, records are made to be broken. 2022 was a banner year for the Viking sophomore as she took down records with ease… and hard work.

Arielle, a swimmer since early childhood at local YMCAs, said she trains every day to improve her speed and technique. That includes nearly three hours of swimming and land-based exercises five afternoons a week and three mornings a week of extra swim practice.

“When I first started swimming, I just liked being in the water and hanging out with my friends. As I got faster, it got more and more exciting,” she said. “I would do a race and be faster than the year before.”
