Summarizing the Announced Participants for the 2013 Duel in the Pool Through October 12th

It’s still about three weeks before USA Swimming and the European All-Stars’ deadlines to officially announce their full rosters of 20 men and 20 women for the 2013 Duel in the Pool in Glasgow, Scotland, but many swimmers have already confirmed their participation in this year’s meet.

With so many names coming in so sporadically, below we’ve collected all of the names who have confirmed their participation to us, either through press releases, public announcements, or personal notes. As more names come out, we will attempt to keep a running list at the bottom of each article so that we may all see how the teams stack up against one another.

Keep up to date on all of the news for this year’s Duel in the Pool, which will be held on December 20th and 21st, on our official Duel in the Pool channel.

Why would there be waiting on US athletes being invited or making a commit…is there a funding or subsidy issue or game theory over funds for the athletes? It just seems very odd there would be a gestation period of months for a roster to dribble in piece by piece. Is this an event national team members would really say no to?


Lotte Friis also trains at NBAC.
