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.

Rosters updated as of 9/24/2019. We will continue to update this post throughout the season.

Nathan Adrian is the best

The number of ISL dropouts rivaling the number of NCAA commits who transfer….

Top two toss up between Energy Standard and Cali Condors then LA Current and London Roar IMHO

Would swim swam be able to produce a “free agent” list in some kind of performance ranking to include those not signed for whatever reason, not committed yet, withdrawn, etc? Would be cool to see top 8 or so world rankings by event and who, starting with Simone, is next in line to still possibly be included as well as who is not and any known rational why (ie. Japanese swimmers focused on Tokyo, etc).

Wasn’t Ross Murdoch on the Team Iron team? Has he been dropped or something because it appears he has been replaced on this list by Arno Kamminga. If he is still on the squad that would mean they have 17 men signed???

Is Shayna Jack still eligible and swimming?

She’s suspended but not banned from ISL yet pending the outcome of her case. Seems really unlikely she’ll be swimming in ISL this season and probably never.
