International Swimming League Roster Refresh

The International Swimming League (ISL) recently published its technical information, breaking down event schedules, scoring, lineups and more for the new competitive concept’s inaugural season. With that in mind, let’s take stock of each of the eight teams’ rosters as we know them to stand today, taking into account updates since most of the non-American-based teams’ lineups were revealed back in April and the American-based teams were made known in June.

For instance, World Championships multi-gold medalist and newly-minted 100m fly World Record holder Caeleb Dressel was originally absent from all ISL rosters but has since joined the Cali Condors.

On the flip side, both Italy’s Ilaria Cusinato and France’s Laura Grangeon were originally members of ISL teams, but the swimmers have since voluntarily removed themselves from the inaugural ISL season.

Cusinato relinquished her spot on the Aqua Centurions roster in order to better adjust to her new training regimen under Shane Tusup.

As for Grangeon, the once-New York Breaker has now opted out of the league to focus on open water training leading up to the Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo next year.

Two swimmers, Gabriel Santos and Shayna Jack, were suspended after registering positive doping control tests. Santos is now permanently ineligible, while Jack’s status is pending the conclusion of anti-doping proceedings in Australia.

American Simone Manuel remains the biggest name that has still yet to announce a team affiliation for the first season of the ISL.

London Roar had to sign each of Peaty’s biceps to separate deals.

Cody has a clause that allows him to live vlog his swims, giving fans an update on the race each time he breathes via a go pro on the end of a selfie stick attached to his cap.

Dean, as an omniscient and all powerful being, has actually signed for all 8 teams and will swim every single match whilst simultaneously retaining amateur status and focusing exclusively on his pre-Olympic training in Texas.


Logical for Simine to go to LA Current or Cali Condors. Both teams are good already, would be interesting so see which one she picks if between the two.


You’d think ISL would maintain an official list of the teams and their members on the website. The website is pretty crap tbh. Are the teams frozen when the season starts or are they still allowed to add swimmers mid season?

We’ve asked several times about a “signing window,” and while we’ve received no official response, we also didn’t see anything in the technical handbook that would forbid a mid-season signing.

Is Bentz the only American on a European team?

I believe so.

FYI London Roar’s Finlay Knox officially announced his move to HPCO


I hope they can make it work, but agree the whole thing seems to be a bit of a shambles at the moment.
