Dislocated Shoulder, Not Snow, Keeping Nick Thoman Out at Orlando Grand Prix.

SwimSwam’s Mel Stewart, who is on deck today at the Orlando Grand Prix, has confirmed that Nick Thoman is out of the meet while dealing with a dislocated shoulder.

While some of his SwimMAC teammates have had trouble making their first-day events because of travel issues out of Charlotte, Thoman’s absence is more troubling. He was only scheduled to swim three events at the meet, the 100 fly, the 100 back, and the 200 back.

According to SwimMAC head coach David Marsh, Thoman dislocated his shoulder on Tuesday afternoon. He’s under the care of SwimMAC Team Elite Dr. Jason Batley, and is already back in the water kicking.

Thoman took off most of the summer, though he still made an appearance at the U.S. Open to seal up his spot on the National Team. Early this year, he’s looked very sharp, not showing much wear from injury or the time off, including a 44.0 in the 100 yard back at Winter Nationals and a 54.0 in the 100 meter back at the Austin Grand Prix.
