Olympic and World Champs Medalists Highlight US Summer Nationals Psych Sheets

2022 US Summer Nationals

USA Swimming has released psych sheets for next week’s Summer Nationals, and a dozen members of the US Worlds team are set to wrap up a long few months of racing with appearances in Irvine.

Since Worlds is already in the rearview mirror, and no selection criteria has yet been announced for the US team for the 2023 World Championships, this event will serve as more of a “fun” end of the season meet for some swimmers, and an additional chance to throw down some fast times for others.

Olympic and Worlds gold medalist Katie Ledecky is set to compete in Irvine, and while she’s entered in some of her usual events, like the 200 free, she’s already entered in the 100 free and the 400 IM, events she doesn’t race quite as much.

Her Gator training partners Bobby Finke and Kieran Smith are also World Champs teammates who are entered in some different events for them. Finke is entered in his bread-and-butter 800 free and 1500 free, but also in the 400 free, which he didn’t swim at Trials, and the 400 IM, which he swam but finished 3rd. Kieran Smith is stretching his range a bit more with entries in the 800 free and both IMs, along with his normal 100/200/400 free.

Shaine Casas, who only swam the 200 back at Worlds (and earned a medal), is entered in the 100 free, 100 fly, and the 200 IM. Casas threw down some fast times recently at a sectional meet, but didn’t swim the 200 IM there, and fans could be in store for a big swim from him in that event.

Claire Curzan had a pretty full schedule at Worlds, but she’s entered in mix of events which she swam at Worlds (100 back/fly) and events she didn’t (200 back/50 free).

Full List of US World Champs Swimmers Entered

  • Mallory Comerford – 100 free

  • Kieran Smith – 100 free, 200 free, 400 free, 800 free, 200 IM, 400 IM

What does the $ sign next to certain swimmers mean? Guess I had never noticed that one before….

It usually means there’s some sort of issue with the swimmers’ entry in the meet or the time itself and a coach needs to go to the Times desk to clear it up before the meet starts.

If someone may be having health issues that they’re trying to deal with, do you really think it’s appropriate for swimswam to harrass him because you’re curious?

Stop treating this as if we’re all in highschool, this is professional sport and I absolutely am allowed to want to know why the biggest swimmer in the sport just left the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

We’re in the era of Popovici now. Get with the program. Dressel has already been relegated to a 1-event swimmer (50 free).

HIPAA was created for a reason. If you knew the reason, what then? Would people stop this or would they use that reason to downplay or belittle what he’s going through? It’s interesting how insistent people can be until something serious happens to them or a loved one.

As an FYI – HIPAA does not apply to news organizations (and I include SwimSwam as a news organization) or individuals such as relatives, friends, employees that do not provide medical care or oversee medical insurance. HIPAA applies to covered entities which health care providers, medical insurances including employers’ health plan, HMO, and government medical insurance (Medicare, Medicaid). That said, we can ask anyone for their health status but they do not need to answer. That include LeBron James and Mayfield. Watch a college or professional football game and watch them go into a tent. Interestingly, tennis players have treatment right on the court.

Tennis players’ reason for withdrawing/retiring is also listed on the draw for everyone to see.

If swimming’s superstars lack professional clarity to the fans, the sport won’t ever grow to a greater outreach. As much as I love the sport, the professional standard is much lower in this sport relative to others.
Sadly, many naive pro swimmers complain about the lack of money in the sport.
