Update: After initial release, USA Swimming made one update to the National Team roster. The new roster is listed below. See here for more details.

USA Swimming has released their 2014-2015 U.S. National Team roster.

This team is selected from the top 6 athletes, in all Olympic events, from the 2014 U.S. National Championships and 2014 Pan Pac Championships results combined. Times from prelims and finals (A, B, or C) were all considered, but relay lead-offs, time trials, and swim-offs were not.

Among the highlights include Michael Phelps’ return after a hiatus from the 2013-2014 team. Phelps officially made the team in four events: the 100 free, the 100 back, the 100 fly, and the 200 IM.

Stay tuned to SwimSwam.com for several scheduled follow-up articles breaking down the 2014-2015 U.S. National Team.

Thanks!

Yeah, I was wondering that myself. Need more of an explanation here. If you are #6 in the 50 free what does that get you?

Athlete benefits depend on amateur status and world rankings:
