Note: these rosters are still very much in flux. As swimmers make the World Championship teams in other events, they’ll be bumped from the World University Games Team. If WUGs swimmers make the Junior Worlds team later in the week (or vice versa), they’ll have to enter one or the other, as the dates conflict. There’s no specific word in USA Swimming’s selection procedures as to which meet takes priority, so it’s hard to predict whether the decision will come down to individual swimmers or whether one meet will supplant the other. On top of all that, many swimmers decline invitations to compete at these meets, particularly Junior Worlds swimmers, who may have commitments to school or other activities.
With all that said, consider this a tentative early look at the top qualifiers for the secondary international meets. It’s also certainly possible we overlooked someone with World University Games eligibility, as we don’t have perfect information on who is enrolled in some sort of collegiate academic program (whether in-person or online) and who isn’t. If you think we missed someone, please respectfully let us know in the comment section and we’ll do our best to confirm the information.
There was a little shuffling of the World University Games team tonight. Stanford’s Abrahm Devine was set to swim the 200 back at WUGs, but made Worlds in the 200 IM. That pulled him off the WUGs roster and opened up a spot for Tennessee’s Joey Reilman in the 200 back.
The women have been right up against the roster cap for a few days, with only three swimmers ‘doubling’ up on qualified events. (Ella Eastin made both the 200 IM and 200 fly, Lia Neal the 50 and 100 frees and Miranda Tucker the 100 and 200 breaststrokes). That means four women in the lower qualifying priorities are out – the third-place finishers in the 100 and 200 frees won’t make the team (Katie Drabot and Caroline Baldwin). And the two second-place finishers among all events except the 100 and 200 frees with the lowest world rank won’t make the team. As it happens, that is both of tonight’s 2nd-highest eligible finishers: Emma Barksdale in the 200 IM (world rank: 49th) and Katrina Konopka in the 50 free (world rank: 40th).
Of course, that could change if swimmers decline their positions, particularly those who are also competing in relay events at Worlds. World University Games takes place in late August this year, which typically sets swimmers off to a bit of a slow start for next college season – that’d be the main reason for any swimmer declining a spot at WUGs.
The men were almost in a similar boat. The roster hit its max of 20 last night, but all four of tonight’s qualifiers were doubling up after previously qualifying in other events. Had a new name qualified in the 200 IM or 50 free tonight, the first man left off the team would have been Olympic gold medalist Ryan Held.
YOU CAN FIND FULL SELECTION PROCEDURES FOR EACH MEET HERE.
The full World Championships roster is here.
- Swimmers who make Worlds individually can’t do WUGs. They can still do Junior Worlds.
- Swimmers who make Worlds as relay-only swimmers can still do WUGs individually.
- WUGs are for swimmers enrolled in college as of Spring 2017 or Fall 2017
- Junior Worlds are for girls born in 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003 and boys born in 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002.
- World University Games rosters are smaller: 20 men and 20 women, as opposed to 26 each for Worlds and Junior Worlds. As such, only the top 3 make it in each relay event. The rest of the relay spots (and the non-Olympic events) are filled by swimmers already on the team.

can anywone tell me why on earth do they hold those 2 important meetings at the same time?
michel – the World University Games and World Junior Championships are different events run by unrelated organizations, each with their own goals and schedules to abide by. FINA doesn’t have control over the World University Games (though surely their opinion is asked), and vice versa with WUGS. There are only so many weekends in a summer in which to host events…USA Swimming wasn’t going to host and overlap World Juniors with U.S. Junior Nationals, so this was the logical availability.
So what about MAs performance at Trials?I am starting to think he may not live up to his amazing age group swimming. Should he just swim the 50 free? Is it time to give up on usrpt, or change/modify it? I think the time has come for some serious changes that unfortunately he and his dad may not do. What about a change of club/coach, and if yes then who? I think Dave Salo would be his best bet, he would keep the quality/usrpt but would also develop (if not too late) a training backbone that would give him more consistency on the 100 and 200s. He always goes out consistently fast which is probably ingrained from his usrpt training… Read more »
Just wondering why Hannah Moore doesn’t have her own circle/picture shown “In this Story” since she’s a National Team member?
Doesnt Maxime Rooney get the other 100 fly spot not Harting? I know he swam in the B final but hes still listed for the 200 free and he swam in the B final of that?
He’s listed in the 200 free since 6 people in the A final made the 4×200 team, one of the others was Jay Litherland who qualified for the 400 IM, so as the winner of the B-final he was the next eligible for WUGs. Also in the fly it doesn’t matter if his time beat Hartings, placing (ie being in the A final over B) gives spots on the team.
whats up with the different fonts and colors?
So what’s Josh Prenot doing later this summer? No WUGs, he definitely qualified didn’t he?
Prenot already graduated from Cal so he can’t swim WUGs
If he was doing grad courses he would have been eligible.
you can’t be older than 23 and he redshirted after high school and this was his fifth year so probably too old. there is a meet in Rome that some of the pros or national teamers are doing in August.
Why wouldn’t Austin Katz move up for WUGs in 200 back?
Curious – that’s a situation the selection procedures aren’t totally clear on. Katz is qualified for Junior Worlds, which conflicts date-wise with World University Games. He’s (to my knowledge) the only qualifier eligible for both. In the past, Junior Worlds has been the higher-priority meet, so that’s what we’re projecting for now, though that could certainly change.
Word on the street is Katz is swimming WUGs.
Each team gets two spots per event for Jr Worlds, including non-olympic events, with the two spot being from the next best already secured on the team. Correct? Still would love to know if they get alternate swimmers for relays in prelims because if that is the case Team USA has some killer backups.
That’s an interesting thought. There’s nothing in the selection procedures about adding additional athletes to the roster, but they certainly have the roster space, particularly on the boys Junior Worlds roster, which has 19 of 26 slots filled and a lot of athletes set up for busy event schedules.
