Foster, Urlando, Curzan Head USA Swimming’s Official 2019 World Juniors Roster

USA Swimming has released its roster for the 2019 World Junior Championships, highlighted by four-individual-event entrants Carson Foster, Luca Urlando and Claire Curzan.

The rosters are almost identical to what we projected at the end of U.S. Nationals last week, with only one changeDestin Lasco appears to have declined his spot on the boys roster, leaving openings in the 100 free, 4×100 free relay and 200 IM. Next up in the individual 100 free is Jake Magahey, who would’ve swum the event as part of the 4×100 free relay, but will now swim it individually as well. Jack Armstrong is now on the roster as the final relay swimmer. And Sean Faikish jumped onto the roster as the next 200 IMer up.

The official roster also features the entrants in the 50s of fly, back and breast, which weren’t swum at the qualifying meet.

You can view the full roster here.

A few juniors will have extraordinarily busy lineups. Foster, Urlando and Curzan each have four individual entries. Urlando will likely add three relays to that: the boys 4×200 free, the boys medley and the mixed medley relay. Foster should swim the 4×200 free relay, and Curzan the girls medley relay and perhaps the mixed medley.

The 2019 FINA World Junior Swimming Championships will run from August 20th to 25th in Budapest, Hungary.

Here are the full rosters. We’ve included the top qualifiers in each 100 as the likely medley relay participants, though that’s not official yet. We haven’t included either of the mixed relays, as they’re harder to predict:

World Juniors are selected based on Year of Birth. Only boys born 2001-04 are eligible and Jake was born in 2000.

Day 2 of the meet has the 1 fly, 2 IM, and 2 free. Can’t do it all. Him and Carson both have doubles that day.

Overheard him saying at Nationals that he wanted to focus on Trials and not have a major meet until then
