Schnell's qualification for the Tokyo games adds to Arizona Women's Swimming and Diving's illustrious Olympics history as Wildcats have competed in the pool in the Olympics 66 times.

The decorated diver posted a banner 2020-21 for the Wildcats by earning All-American honors in the platform and the 1-meter dives after being named the Pac-12 Diver of the Year. Schnell is now a three-time All-American in the 1-meter dive and a two-time All-American in the platform dive.

The 2021 Tokyo Olympic games are scheduled to begin on July 23 in Japan with NBC broadcasting the games in its entirety on its family of networks.
