Swimmer of the Month: Kelly Gillig

Kelly Gillig is a remarkable swimmer as her strokes are beautiful to watch and her speed is astonishing! Kelly has a very hard work ethic and enjoys pushing the limits at every practice. Kelly is very competitive and likes to keep up with swimmers half her age during workouts! Kelly has been swimming with Greenville Splash on a regular basis for many years. She has earned many state records and top ten times in USMS. She recently added 2 more state records in the 100 Fly and 400 IM. Her work ethic is an inspiration to other swimmers. Kelly has a husband and three children and her oldest daughter, Annie is a swimmer for Ohio State. In her spare time she loves to spend time with her family, dog and grand-dog!
