Sunday morning’s prelims session of the Pro Swim Series in Richmond will feature some of the closest races of the weekend.
In a relatively short session, the women’s 200 IM will feature a battle between top talents Emily Escobedo and Grace Sheble. Escobedo has been having a very strong weekend, posting a best time of 1:07.11 in the 100 breaststroke on Friday, along with a time of 2:23.46.in the 200 breaststroke on Saturday. The 25 year-old is the oldest entrant in the entire field, but still holds the second seed with her time of 2:14.84. Sheble has also been having a good weekend, claiming a 1st place finish in the 200 butterfly.
Like San Antonio, the men’s side will be highlighted by the 100 freestyle, where some of the top swimmers in the US will throw down. Leading the pack Michael Chadwick holds the only seed under :49 seconds.
Following his best time in the 50 freestyle, 18-year-old David Curtiss will also be a contender for the 100 freestyle crown. Currently, his best time stands at 51.49, which leaves him seeded 13th. However, it seems likely that Curtiss will lower that over the course of the day.
30-year-old Austin Surhoff will also be looking to follow up a best time in the 100 freestyle following his best time in the 50 freestyle.
