@Retta, Romanian Nationals are taking place next week in Otopeni.
David Popovici is entered in 6 events (50-100-400 free, 50-100 fly and 100 back).
Is the 4/17 the Aussie Trials meet? I thought they moved it closer to the WC?
It is not the Trials. Just a nationals meet.
Trials are in June. This is a National Champ Meet.
Does anyone know how to view the Aussie Aged Championships?
Swimming Australia seem to be keeping it a secret.
Still a secret so far
Did you notice that SA is stupidly sticking to the old age groups for girls (14-17) when selecting the team for this year’s junior worlds?
Means Australia won’t be able to take the likes of Jamie Perkins, Isabella Boyd, Iona Anderson, Abbey Connor (if she doesn’t make the worlds team) and more to junior worlds putting them at a disadvantage again like at junior pan pacs.
Some of the bigger Aussie meets have been on Amazon Prime, could this meet be on Prime as well?
Was on Prime last year.
not necessarily. amazon prime’s contract was only for 2 years, and at this point has not been renewed
Hopefully a strong turnout of high profile college athletes, including individual medalists from the 2022 World Aquatics Championships, show up at the next TYR Pro Swim Series event:
Now the focus shifts to long course with thirteen weeks to prepare for the 2023 USA Swimming International Team Trials or whatever USA Swimming labels the event.
