Pro Duel Meet 1, hosted by the University of Michigan and Club Wolverine, is adding a little big of Latin flavor into the mix with the addition of three South American swimmers to the lineup.
The biggest name is Felipe Lima, who is a part of the increasingly-powerful Brazilian breaststroke group. He is the former South American record holder in both the 50 (LCM and SCM) and 100 (SCM) breaststrokes and is ranked 16th in the World in the 100 breaststroke in 1:00.46.
Frederico Veloso Castro is another Brazilian and a butterflier whose biggest career accomplishment was a silver-medal from the Beijing stop of last year’s World Cup. And the third member of the contingent is Daniele Tirabasi of Venezuela, who is a 2008 Olympian and the Venezuelan Record holder in the 200 free.
