Conor Dwyer representing Club Trojan for the first time at Austin Arena Pro Swim Series

U.S. Olympic gold medalist Conor Dwyer is competing in Austin under a new banner after representing North Baltimore Aquatic Club for all of 2014.

It’s been long rumored that Dwyer has been training in Los Angeles with USC’s Club Trojan (and Dwyer’s Twitter account had seemed to indicate as much), but the Olympian hadn’t publicly made any announcements about his training home or club representation, nor responded to any requests for verification on the subject.

But Dwyer officially showed up to the Arena Pro Swim Series at Austin swimming for “Unattached-Trojan,” the first time he hasn’t represented North Baltimore since the summer of 2013.

Dwyer swam the 100 free and 400 free this morning, making the A final of both. He’ll be in the hunt for the win in the 400, where he’s seeded second, and is seventh in a loaded 100 free field where it appears many of the veterans (Dwyer included) were saving something for the finals.

Matt McLean offers insight on NBAC. Training has been challenging but perfect for his goals moving toward the 2016 olympic games.
