It would be cool if more Americans did the Mare Nostrum swim series.
Maybe the distance is a detractor.

100m World champion Fred Kerley in athletics flew 18 hours to Australia to race a 400, distance isn’t an excuse in this modern world

He would’ve received an appearance fee and he was in Australia for several weeks not just for a single race.

MA should get some credit for embracing this. Not sure about the Mexico trip but in general if you offer some cash and have some 50s he will be there

He’s not swimming the 200 IM here, so no I don’t think we’ll be seeing a 47-second final lap.

Unless you’re suggesting he splits 23/47 for a blistering fast 1:10 100 free.
