2017 U.S. NATIONALS/WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS TRIALS

 

Team USA will take 24 men and 21 women to Budapest next month for the 2017 World Championships.

While we’re still waiting for the official announcement from USA Swimming (we don’t know for sure if anyone may have declined events), this is what the team should look like.

Remember that the 2nd slot for the stroke 50s goes to the winner of that stroke’s 100, but in cases where that’s same person (most of them), our understanding is that the 2nd slot will go the person on the team with the highest world ranking in the stroke 50.  The 2nd slot in the women’s 1500 goes to the winner of the 800, while the 2nd slot in the men’s 800 goes to whoever has the highest ranking in the 400 or the 1500.
