Bob Bowman’s North Baltimore Aquatic Club (NBAC) may be the greatest swim club ever assembled. NBAC elite swimmers include; 3-time Olympic medalist Yannick Agnel, Olympic Gold medalist Conor Dwyer, pool and open water Olympic gold medalist Ous Mellouli, 2012 Olympic gold medalist Matt McLean, 6-time Olympic medalist Allison Schmitt, US Butterfly National Champion Tom Luchsinger, open water and pool elite Becca Mann, Olympic medalist and World Champion Lotte Friis, NCAA Champion and World Medalist Chase Kalisz, US National Champion Gillian Ryan, Junior Worlds gold medalist Cierra Runge, paralympic swim star Jessica Long, and Michael Phelps, the greatest swimmer of all time (if he officially comes back).
Over the next two and half years, as we approach the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, whether or not NBAC is the greatest swim team (club team, not an NGB team) will be determined. Among the US super clubs, SwimMAC is extremely formiddable as is David Salo’s crew at Trojan Aquatic Club.
If you had to predict which club will put the most athletes on Olympic Teams, which would it be?
