South Jersey swimmer Kelsi Worrell is heading to Rio. The 21-year-old won the 100-meter butterfly at the U.S. swimming trials Monday night with the second-fastest time in the world this year at 56.48 seconds.

With the win, Worrell earned a spot on the U.S. Olympic team for the first time in her career.

"I'm just so excited to be here," Worrell said. "It is my first time, and I didn't know what to expect."

Worrell was born in Voorhees Township, New Jersey and grew up in Westampton Township, NJ. She attended Rancocas Valley Regional High School in Mount Holly before swimming at the University of Louisville.

Prior to her Olympic trial win, Worrell won the 100- and 200-yard butterfly in the 2015 NCAA Championships. She also won first place in the 100-yard freestyle and 100-yard butterfly in the 2015 Atlantic Coast Conference Championships and the 100- and 200-yard butterfly in the 2014 AT&T Winter Nationals.

Months after President Obama's historic trip to Cuba, 15-time NBA all-star Shaquille O'Neal will visit the island nation.

The State Department announced Friday that O'Neal will be part of a U.S. Department of State Sports Envoy to promote sports to the Cuban youth for four days starting this weekend.

The retired NBA star will be joined by Dallas Mavericks Assistant Coach Kaleb Canales to lead basketball camps for youth and demonstrate how sports can serve as a means of developing academic, leadership, and teamwork skills, according to a State Department news release. He is expected to visit historically significant cultural sites in Havana and further promote positive ties between the United States and Cuban people.

O'Neal played in the NBA for 19 seasons and retired following the 2011 season. He played for the Miami Heat from 2004 to 2008, winning his fourth championship, after many years with the LA Lakers and Orlando Magic.
