EL DORADO, Ark. (KTVE/KARD) 6/11/21- Izzy Gati is eager to have a chance to participate in the meet of her dreams.

The El Dorado native is pushing for a spot on this year’s Olympics Swim Team.

Gati is currently in Omaha, Nebraska preparing to compete in the Olympic Trials. A senior at the University of Kentucky, this isn’t Gati’s first time trying out for the team.
