  • October 21 – November 5, 2022
    • Leg 1: Oct. 21-23 – Berlin, Germany
    • Leg 2: Oct. 28-30 – Toronto, Canada
    • Leg 3: Nov. 3-5 – Indianapolis, Indiana

An absolutely stacked lineup of swimmers are set to compete in the opening leg of the 2022 FINA World Cup circuit next week in Berlin, with FINA revealing the full list of entrants on Friday.

An initial group of 10 swimmers were confirmed to be competing at all three stops of the series last month, and earlier today USA Swimming announced a lineup of athletes who will contest the circuit including 20 Olympians.

Swimmers Confirmed For All Three Stops

The full list features a ton of notable names, from up-and-coming stars to solidified veterans.

Given the event is in Berlin, it’s no surprise we’ll see several European countries well represented. Some of the European athletes competing that we didn’t know about before include the following:

The list also features a sizeable group of American swimmers, including several junior-aged athletes. Cal fifth-year Reece Whitley is another notable name listed.

USA Swimming announced a 12-swimmer roster that will represent the U.S. junior team at the Indianapolis stop in November, but none of those swimmers appear to be racing in Berlin.

The full list of swimmers for the second stop in Toronto is also available:

Ledecky, Brooks Curry, Liendo, MacNeil and McIntosh are among the biggest participants.

Which means Katie Ledecky is participating in both north american stops to swim the 1500m in Toronto and the 800m in Indy.

Maddy Wilson is obviously not European. Glad to see Meg Harris is taking the opportunity to get some short course experience before WCs.
