I’m 15 can I make Olympic swimming in the future?

My swim experience up til now has been 3-4 years of swim lessons when I was really little then I joined a swim team when I was 10 and 11 then I quit for a while now I’m a high-school freshmen and I’m currently on a competitive swim team

    Unlikely. I've known people who swam competitively year round from age 7 until age 18 and didn't even get college scholarships. To have a realistic chance at the Olympics, by age 15 you should be nationally ranked in your primary events, and be swimming for a nationally-known swimming club, there's also a good chance that you'll also be home-schooled so that you can train more.
