Rio Olympian Melanie Margalis, who went 4:11.06 for the 2nd-fastest time in the 400 free this morning, has scratched out of that final.
Among the big name scratches for day 1 prelims is Great Britain’s Adam Peaty, who scratched out of the 200 breast, where he was the 5th seed.
Adam Peaty and a strong British team will descend upon Indianapolis this weekend for the second stop on the 2017 Arena Pro Swim Series. Peaty, the world record holder in the 100 breaststroke, could lower the U.S. Open Record in the 100 breast.
Even though 100m breaststroke world record holder Adam Peaty is competing in Indianapolis, he’s listed as swimming one event you wouldn’t expect.
The international contingent on the men;s side will be headlined by Great Britain’s Adam Peaty, who smashed the 100 breast World Record to win gold in Rio last summer.
5-time Olympic gold medalist Nathan Adrian will make his return to competition at the Pro Swim Series meet in Indianapolis next…
One stop in, Melanie Margalis and Daiya Seto have grabbed early leads in the 2017 Arena Pro Swim Series point standings. Margalis has earned 19 points and $1900 while Seto has taken home 20 and $2000.
