Is this the first time there are NO high schoolers (male or female)?

Ledecky is the youngest on the women’s side; anyone know who youngest male is?

Why are some names in the list in bold faced red, some in light red and some in black?

Think it’s based on who has a biography on SwimSwam (bold red = has bio; red = no bio but has been tagged in articles on SwimSwam; black = no bio/no previous tags or mentions).

So, Megan Romano didn’t make the team?

***Quick Poll***

After Day 7, the roster is almost all filled up. My guess is there will be only a maximum of two new names from tomorrow (one in m1500 and another in w50, maybe Madison Kennedy and either McBroom or Wilimovsky?).

The question: Looking at the list so far, who is most the successful men’s coach in Omaha?

Upvote if you think Dave Durden gets it done
Downvote if Eddie Reese got it.

Feel like the first half of the meet was big on Texas guys, second half was all Cal. Though it was mainly Texas freestylers making the team, Cal was well represented everywhere. (And with a good number of post-grads.)

Durden.

If there was a 200FR Olympics, Eddie would definitely go. All kidding aside, he will likely be asked to go.

Besides the coaches that have already been named, here are my predictions:

1. Durden (a no-brainer)
2. Bauerle
3. Meehan (another Cal guy — lol)
4. McKeever (with all the Cal ladies hard to no ask her)
5. Others: Troy, Reese, Gemmel (becuase Katie is the new Phelps)

Thoughts?

It may be four years early for this coach, but I’d have to say my old friend Ray Looze deserves to go to Rio.

Nice, I like that one. Yes, what he has done has been pretty amazing.

Your personally going to GUARANTEE Olympic spots for Pieroni and Smith?? I’m not so sure

Reply to  Sloppy

Sloppy: Based on what USA Swimming told us earlier this year in regards to relay alternates (see here: https://swimswam.com/team-usa-not-anticipating-changes-in-olympic-relay-swimmer-selection/) and based on the official selection criteria listed on the USA Swimming website, both Pieroni and Smith should be on the team. With just one men’s event and one women’s event left, neither gender will be up against the 26-person cap.
