Shaine Casas, Claire Curzan, Charlie Swanson and Kylee Alons have all dropped out of an ‘A’ final on Day 3 of the U.S. Trials in Greensboro.
In this post, we’ll be looking over some of the great swims from day 2 of the 2022 U.S. International Team Trials that may have been overlooked.
Caeleb Dressel is the favorite in the men’s 100 fly, though he has been beaten twice this year in the race: once by Michael Andrew and once by Shaine Casas.
