Last week, the hosts of the Mare Nostrum series stop in Monaco announced an elite list of participants that included World Champions, Olympic Champions, and World Record holders, but only 1 American: Madisyn Cox.
It turns out that she won’t be the only U.S. swimmer in attendance at the meet. She will be one of 11 swimmers from the US delegation in attendance at the series, though she’s one of two who are only swimming the Monaco and Canet stops.
