Last month organizers of the 2020 Luxembourg Euro Meet announced details for the 2020 edition slated for January 24th-26th, with 4 elite attendees’ names announced. Finnish breaststroker Jenna Laukkanen, German backstroker Jenny Mensing, home nation swimmer Laurent Carnol and Lithuanian Giedrius Titenis were all revealed as ready to race next month.

However, the stakes have since been raised, with another round of high-profile swimmers committing to swimming at the Euro Meet.

Sweden’s Olympic champion and World Record holder Sarah Sjostrom is now set to race in Luxembourg, as is Brazilian World Championships silver medalist Bruno Fratus

Fratus will be joined by fellow sprinters Ben Proud of Great Britain and Andrii Govorov of Ukraine, not to mention another Energy Standard weapon in Florent Manaudou of France.

Denmark’s reigning 50m freestyle gold medalist from Rio, Pernille Blume, has been unveiled as another competitor for the Euro Meet.

There is still plenty of time for additional participants to be announced, with the 2019 edition of the meet having carried some heavyweight hitters as Katinka Hosszu, David Verraszto, Mykhailo Romanchuk and Kliment Kolesnikov, so stay tuned on other names who may kick-off their 2020 racing calendar with this competition.

I dont think the word “commit” is what I would use. It sounded like they were all committing to swim for the same college by the title.

“Commit” is nothing. But heavyweight hitter Katinka Hosszu is priceless.
