Our lord and savior will make the Tokyo team in the 100 back


Yes but Schooling will beat his time in practice afterwards

Swimswam Darlings

51.7 will be a steep time to beat

Swimswam Darlings

But Dean will be dragsuited to ensure a fair race and Luca will beat Schooling in the Olympics


Let’s see his 100 back tapered at nationals first, really think the 100 &/or 200 free is his ticket to Paris, and honestly I want Grevers to get the 2 spot after his rough 2016 and how he’s come back as strong as ever(he’s our last link to 2008 along with Schmitt!)

Unlikely that Luca will beat Schooling at the Olympics, but that’s only because I think Luca will make it in the 200 fly, but not the 100 fly and Schooling won’t race the 200 fly.

Yes, she will

Carlos Torres

I still wish Annie Lazor was there, but it’ll still be fun to watch a race between King and Efimova


It is confirmed by head coach


There’s a mixed 4 X 200?

Old Man Chalmers

Beach water polo sounds phenomenal


Quicksand water polo is the real deal though. 😉

About Jared Anderson

Jared Anderson
