Wow, didn’t notice that FINA Champions Series #1 and #2 are happening in Jan (first day is less than a month away). Has FINA announced who are invited and who are committed?

also wondering how many US pro swimmers, assuming getting invite, will go to the FINA events; and how many will choose to stay in US and raced at Pro Swim Series at Knoxville, TN that same week.


probably must are going to stay.. except for Andrew…
