Yes currently most of the swimmers on the team are Australian, but they will add more swimmers to the team. Every team will have 12 women and 12 men.

I would have thought this has something to do with Rob Woodhouse, who is peaty’s agent and also represents a lot of the Aussie swimmers.

What about Ben Proud and Kliment? I thought they would represent Energy Standard since they train there too!

Does everyone get the same appearance fee or is that negotiated by their agents?

Yeah most likely they will be on the team. Not all swimmers have been announced yet. They have announced 7 out of 24 swimmers.

Just an idea for a team in the US. The whole Indiana pro group. There already a team they might just need two or three more pros to make it more well rounded team.
