Eligul is a strong sprint freestyler and butterflier. In the 50 and 100 free, her best times in LCM convert to 23.17 and 49.89, respectively. Meanwhile, her fly times convert to 23.87 and 54.66, respectively. That 50 fly is eye-catching, and her overall sprint prowess will add depth to the Crimson Tide. She is right on the cusp of SEC C-final speed in the 50 free, 100 free, and 100 fly (with her converted times).
Alabama has attracted Eligul along with two other high-impact international commits for the class of 2021. German freestyler Leonie Kullman and Hungarian do-everything sprinter Flora Molnar are huge gets for head coach Dennis Pursley. Both swam in Rio last summer– Kullman swam on the 4×200 free relay, while Molnar finished 25th in the 50 free.
Eligul joins a large incoming class for the ‘Bama women. In addition to Molnar and Pullman, she’s future teammates with the following commits:
