Over 50 pro swimmers will descend on the new $20 million Edmond Schools Aquatic Center for the American Energy Elite Pro-Am in Edmond, OK on Dec 18th through 21st. This is the largest group of Olympic swimmers and hopefuls to ever come to the Oklahoma City area. It looks like many of the meet records are in jeopardy and every winner will be setting a pool record in the 8 month old Edmond swim center. A break down of the line up by events is below. Perennial pro favorites like David Plummer, Michael Andrew, Darian Townsend, Michael Klueh and Josh Schneider will be there, in addition to many new pros who will be coming to the meet for the first time, like Connor Jaeger, Breeja Larson, Maya DiRado and Megan Romano.
Josh Davis, who raced at this meet 6 years in a row in the late 90’s, said, “This is the perfect way to finish the semester of training before the Christmas holiday. You get some fast short course races in, catch up with TEAM USA friends and the prize money is better than ever. It is a great meet and to have the new pool in Edmond, makes it that much better.”
