David Popovici just said in an interview he’ll also compete in the Sette Colli Trophy at the end of June.

Until then, he’s competing in the Romanian Cup and he just had today the 100 fly final that he won with 52.45.

Tomorrow he’ll have the 100free and on Sunday the 200free.

Does anyone have any thoughts on the “International Age Group Championships” that Ryan Lochte is promoting for December? I can’t imagine very many age groupers will fly internationally for an age group meet the week before Christmas but the concept is interesting.

In other news, Lochte also said on a podcast this week that Dressel is in “the best head space of his life” so do with that information what you will.

it is similar to the isl’s new venture that I’ve heard about in the last month. both websites have .global in the domain and are international age group meets. I don’t have official confirmation about this, though.

most of the world already has an annual junior meet in junior world/euros/pan pacs anyway, so I can’t imagine many NGBs funding two junior teams each year. china is always producing fast juniors, but they haven’t won a junior worlds medal since 2015, and have had limited success at jpp since 2012. I don’t see them being a factor here. íf russia is allowed, I could see them going given the emphasis they place on junior meets.

Speaking of which, when will the SwimSwam staff commence the previews of the U.S. Nationals? That’s seventeen individual events per gender for a total of thirty-four individual events to review.

I can see your point, but think of how much time that takes. I, personally, rather read/see what people are doing at meets than read what we might think can/could happen.

The vast majority, if not all, of the domestic meets and international meets (Mare Nostrum, for instance) have concluded. One should be able to formulate an assessment of USA Swimming prior to the 2023 Phillips 66 National Championships. Besides, it’s the banter that follows which provides the amusement.

I thought Italy conducted its domestic trials at the Italian Spring Championships.

Italy did and revealed WC roster after National concluded. Sette Colli trophy is an annual three days meeting in Rome which takes place every year in June. It’s an international meeting.

The schedule is too close to the US Nationals for the Americans to attend.

They rarely do, but some of the European big guns usually make an appearance.

Can’t help but think he should follow the Magnussen school of thought and swim in some meets with international competitors leading up to big competitions eg mare nostrum

It seems like he took only 100fly,100free, 200free, we’ll see what he chooses to do. On the school side he just had the final high school exam (the special session dedicated to international competitors in several fields), but in Romania the teachers are on strike from the beginning of this week and things are really stressful there.
