Frankel Earns Second Olympics


 BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana swimming and diving senior Tomer Frankel will compete in his second Olympics at the 2024 Paris Games as the Israel Swimming Association announced its initial roster of 11 swimmers over the weekend.

Frankel is slated to swim the 100-meter freestyle, 100-meter butterfly, 4×100-meter freestyle relay and 4×200-meter freestyle relay.

Frankel previously competed at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, placing 21st in the 100-meter butterfly and 10th in the 4×200-meter freestyle relay. He also represented Israel at the 2022 and 2023 World Championships.

Frankel is Indiana’s program record holder in both the 100-meter butterfly (50.60 – also a national record) and 100-yard butterfly (43.85), becoming the first Hoosier to break 44 seconds on his way to a second-straight medal at the 2024 NCAA Championships.

Frankel is the fourth Hoosier to punch his ticket to Paris, joining swimming teammates Mariah Denigan (United States, open water), Rafael Miroslaw (Germany) and Kai van Westering (Netherlands).
