Cal All-American Andrew Seliskar is absent from the entries for the upcoming 2017 U.S. Nationals, which serve as the World Championships Trials.
One of the big backstroke contenders, age group star Michael Taylor, the former Junior World Record holder in the 200 back, is missing from the psych sheets.
According to the entries, U.S. Olympian Conor Dwyer will not attempt to earn a spot in the 400 free.
According to the entries, NC State sprint champ Ryan Held will be taking on the 50 and 100 fly, as well as the sprint freestyles.
As expected, U.S. Olympic champ Matt Grevers will be swimming the 50 and 100 back, but he’s added 3 more events to his lineup as well.
Despite skipping out on the 200 IM and scratching out of the 400 IM final at last summer’s Olympic Trials, Josh Prenot has opted to enter both IMs in Indy.
Jones showcased his butterfly speed earlier this month, when he swam a big personal best in the 100 fly at the Triangle Classic Meet.
The entry list for the 100 free reveals there will be no Anthony Ervin in the 100 free, but Ryan Murphy and Jack Conger will take a shot at the event.
Andrew’s full event schedule is as follows: 50 free, 100 free, 100 back, 50 breast, 100 breast, 200 breast, 50 fly, 100 fly, and 200 IM.
After coming up just 2 hundredths shy of Dara Torres’ American Record (24.07), Manuel will look to cement her status as the record holder in both sprints this summer.
U.S. Olympic swimmers Caroline Burckle and Kim Vandenberg participated in a video with a group of female athletes in which they recreated some of the Victoria’s Secret Angels’ modeling photos.
In total, the Stanford Cardinal had the highest number of first team selections with 24 men and women combined.
Teammates Ryan Murphy and Jacob Pebley are the frontrunners in the 200 back, but Texas’ John Shebat could come out of nowhere after his explosive NCAA season.
If Licon can carry his explosive NCAA momentum into the long course season, we could see him on top of the podium at Nationals this time around.
The men’s 100 breast field is as stacked as ever, and it looks like it’ll be just as tight a squeeze to make the team this summer as it was at last summer’s Olympic Trials.
