Grieshop, Taylor, Hoffer Headline 2016 U.S. Jr. Pan Pacs Roster

USA Swimming has announced its roster for the 2016 Junior Pan Pacific Championships, headlined by 2015 Junior World Champ and junior world record-holder Sean Grieshop.

The roster features seven medalists from last summer’s Junior World Championships, per USA Swimming: Grieshop, Michael Taylor, Ryan Hoffer, Austin Katz, Daniel Krueger, Cassidy Bayer and Reece Whitley.

Grieshop won the Junior World title in the 400 IM last summer, and set the junior world record at U.S. Olympic Trials a few weeks ago.

Taylor was a double silver medalist in Singapore last summer, taking second in the 100 and 200 back, and he broke the junior world record in the 200 back at U.S. Olympic Trials.

The other Singapore medalists: Hoffer and Krueger won silver as part of the 4×100 free relay, Bayer took bronze as part of the mixed 4×100 medley relay, Katz took bronze in the 200 back and Whitley earned silver in the 100 breast and another silver for his leg of the 4×100 medley relay.

Notably absent from the team is the U.S.’s other junior world record-holder, Michael Andrew, who won gold at Junior Worlds in the 50 back and broke the junior world 100 breast record at U.S. Trials.

You can find the full roster here.

The event will take place in Maui, Hawaii from August 24-27 of this year. USA Swimming based its selection criteria on the U.S. Olympic Trials. You can read the full selection criteria here.

Why no Michael Andrew?

Quinn – Michael will be swimming the World Cups instead.

weirdo

He is a pro and one can make a lot of money on that circuit. I thought USA swimming was only paying for Olympians to go to World Cups this fall. I guess they made an exception for Michael and his entourage.

Alec

He may get comped for travel by sponsors. The US isn’t necessarily bearing that cost.

And isn’t he now on the national team in the 100 breast with a top 6 finish at Trials?

weirdo

yes, he is on the National team for sure, but USA Swimming put out a statement saying only Olympians can get their way paid for by them. but maybe he did get an organizers comp or sponsors.

Mark shark

One can assume Michael will make the National team but that won’t be determined until the end of the summer
His time will need to remain in the top 6
National team designation runs Sept-Aug

Shibly

do u please inform us of the schedule of swimming world cup?

Tea rex

The world cup is a gold mine for versatile swimmers. I hope Andrew takes the time to train for some 200s, but probably won’t since the 50s and 100 IM are offered at every stop.

Shibly

will world cup in a short-course format?

Teddy

MA taking some time off? That ruined Caeleb Dressel’s career…

Dre

How did it ruin his career ?! Cause last I checked he went a 18.2 and a 40.4 and just MADE THE UNITED STATES OLYMPIC TEAM . Please don’t be ignorant of the facts you sound so uneducated .

AKMI20

He was being sarcastic. Back when Caeleb Dressel took his break everyone on swimswam was freaking out about how it would ruin his career

Teddy

Thank you.

Shibly

MA will be the next big thing in US swimming….1oom breast and 200m medley will be his forte by 2017 world aquatics championship hopefully….

samuel huntington

it was sarcasm……
