2012 London Olympic Gold Medalist, Nathan Adrian will be headlining a record-sized field of Pros at the 2014 OKC Pro-Am hosted in Edmond, Oklahoma on Dec 18th thru Dec. 21st. Adrian will be swimming the Pro maximum of 4 events: the 50, 100, 200 free and the 100 fly. Nathan is the fastest American ever in the 50yd (:18.6) and 100yd freestyles (:41.0).
Nathan almost broke his own records last year at the Fastest Man in Texas Shootout, winning $10,001 in just :18.7 seconds, and he was just off his own personal best in the 100yd free and Master Nationals in April. Pro-liason, Josh Davis commented, “To have Nathan in the OK 50 free Shootout format on Sat. Dec 20th will be very exciting. It takes 4 swims total to win the $5000, one in prelims and 3 races in finals. Whenever Nathan races short course he wows the crowd, just like he did in long course when he won gold in the 100 free in 2012. I saw it in Texas and at Masters Nationals in Santa Clara. He puts on a show. Having Nathan race in Edmond, OK, along with all the other Rio 2016 hopefuls will be awesome!”
The presence of Adrian and the rest of the pros is not just a chance for them to win big money, but also a chance for the club swimmers who sign up for the Edmond Pro-Am to race some of the best swimmers in the world.
