Hometown: Christchurch, New Zealand

Education: University of Wisconsin-Madison

Event: Swimming

When: 400: Aug. 6, 11 a.m. (Preliminaries), 8 p.m. (Finals). 1,500: Aug. 12, 11:40 a.m. (Prelims), Aug. 13, 8:10 p.m. (Finals).

Because Hutchins was busy with NCAA championships, he missed his home country’s qualifying meet, but New Zealand allowed him to use the Canadian Olympic Trials as a chance to qualify. He did just that. Hutchins will swim the 400-meter freestyle and the 1,500 free. The Big Ten Swimmer of the Year finished second in the 500- and 1,650-yard freestyle earlier this year.
