Russia has announced its official Olympic swimming roster for this summer’s Tokyo Games following the conclusion of their Olympic Trials in Kazan on Friday, adding five relay only swimmers to bring the team total to 30.
Grinev was an absolute no-brainer, having won three medals at the 2019 World Championships, including an individual bronze in the men’s 100 freestyle. Grinev is the third-fastest swimmer in the world this season in that event (47.85), but ran into the top two in Kazan, with Kliment Kolesnikov and Andrei Minakov locking him out of an individual spot.
Shchegolev and Krasnykh finished third and fourth in the men’s 200 free, both producing elite times of 1:45.82 and 1:45.88, respectively. Having won back-to-back World Championship silver medals in the event, the Russian men will be a huge factor for gold in the 800 free relay this summer.
For the women, Klevanovich placed third in the 100 freestyle, while Ustinova can contribute on both free relays as well.
