King, Haas, Smoliga Lead US-Heavy Cali Condors ISL Team Roster

The ISL (International Swim League) is set to kick off in the Fall as the first ever professional swimming league. So far, there are 8 teams all over Europe and the United States. The teams will compete in bracket-style competitions, culminating in a league finals in Las Vegas in December.

7-time Olympic medalist Jason Lezak has been named GM of the Cali Condors. NCAA runner-up Bowen Becker has already announced that he has signed with the team. Early this morning, it was revealed by The Daily Telegraph ($), an Australian media outlet, that Ariarne Titmus would be joining the Condors as well.

Here is the current 25-strong roster of the Cali Condors:

ISL teams can have a maximum roster of 28, so we’ll likely see a handful more swimmers sign to the Condors (and the other teams) in the coming weeks. Cali has a large US roster, with 14 of the 25 athletes being American. Australia currently has 4 on the roster: Jack Cartwright, Ariarne Titmus, Mitch Larkin, and Shayna Jack. Kelsey Wog and Kylie Masse are representing Canada on this team. There are 5 European swimmers currently: Jan Switkowski, Kacper Majchrzak, and Radosław Kawęcki are Polish, while Mark Szaranek is from the UK, and Anton Ipsen is from Denmark.

Here is the 2019 ISL competition schedule:

One thing I’m interested in is how many swimmers from each roster can swim an event.

Ehm

All swimmers can swim as many events as they want, however only two swimmers per team are allowed to swim in each race.

Daboss

This is so EXCITING!!!!! Much like the Pro Football Draft. Too bad ESPN does not televise it.
