On the red carpet, we asked all of your favorite swimmers about what they were wearing. We also asked how long it took each of them to get ready before the event. It appeared that whether you were a sprinter or distance swimmer had little to no bearing on whether you were ready to walk out the door in 10 minutes or 2 hours.

After an introduction by host John O’Hurley, the evening got underway with the presentation of the 2018 Pan Pacs team. The staff and athletes walked in a number of unique ways, ranging from the men’s coaching staff dabbing to a few semi-nervous waves to bows…and some flossing.
