The four defending champions of the Raia Rapida, a quad-country, 16-man showdown between Brazil, Australia, France, and the USA, have returned for a second crack at big prize money and a lot of glory.
The Americans have confirmed that they will take the same four swimmers that came home with the prize last year: backstroker Adam Mania, breaststroker Mike Alexandrov, butterflier Eugene Godsoe, and sprinter Josh Schneider.
Aside from Mania, that’s three American National Team members, including World Championship medalist Godsoe.
The meet, which runs on September 29th, is a made for TV event in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. Last year, it attracted a spectacular lineup from all four countries, and hopes are that this will happen again.
