Efimova, Peaty, and Charlotte Bonnet Will Race at Canet Mare Nostrum

The next big date circled on the European swimming calendar is the upcoming Mare Nostrum series, which takes athletes to 3 major Mediterranean meets in 9 days as a major benchmarker ahead of the upcoming European Championships.

This year’s series starts in Canet, France, before moving on to Barcelona and then Monaco.

2018 Mare Nostrum Tour Stops:

  • June 9th-10th: Canet en Roussillon, France
  • June 13th-14th: Barcelona, Spain
  • June 16th-17th: Monaco

When the tour kicks off in Canet, the meet will have a new setting thanks to the new Europa complex.

Among the names being touted for participation in the series opener in Canet (official psych sheets still to come):

Organizers also are hyping a roster of swimmers from 29 countries counted among the 400+ participants in Canet: Germany, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Croatia, Denmark, Scotland, Spain, France, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Iceland, Japan, Lithuania, Norway, Kyrgystan, Uzbekistan, USA, Brazil, Paraguay, Russia, Sweden, Ukraine and Zambia.

The Americans will be represented by a USA Swimming-supported junior team:

I think that looks like a press release from the Organizers and not swimswam

The list of Usa juniors you listed is the list that went to Mel Zajac. Not the correct list going to Mare Nostrum. Bobo is correct and article is wrong

I believe the junior team being listed is the Mel Zajac meet team not the Mare Nostrum list.

No mention for Missy Franklin at her first meet back. Can’t wait to see her perform!

Perhaps the biggest news of this tour is the return of Missy Franklin…at least she’s listed to swim in Barcelona.
