U.S. National Team Tracker: Emma Weyant Now Holds Top US Women’s 400 IM Time

2019 U.S. NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

The race is still on for spots on the 2019-2020 U.S. National Team, and swimmers at the U.S. Nationals are trying to break the American top 6 in their respective events to qualify for the squad. To make the team, swimmers have to be in the top 6 of their individual events with times determined by the FINA world rankings from January 1st, 2019 to August 25th, 2019. Tonight, swimmers at Nationals competed in the men’s and women’s 400 IM and 100 fly.

SELECTION CRITERA:

Here’s a look at how the 2019-2020 U.S. National Team will be selected. You can see the full criteria here.

  • Top 6 athletes in each individual Olympic event
    • as determined by FINA.org’s World Rankings from January 1, 2019 through August 25, 2019
    • Rankings will be pulled from the FINA site on September 3 (giving swimmers a chance to make sure their time is included in the database)
  • Prelims, semifinals and finals (A, B, C and D) from all USA Swimming or FINA sanctioned meets are eligible
  • Relay leadoffs, time trials, swim-offs and intermediate splits are not eligible

DAY 3 UPDATES:

In the morning session, the men’s 100 fly top 3 blew away the field and posted great top 6 times. Maxime Rooney posted a sub-51 swim to rank #2 behind Caeleb Dressel, and filling in the remainder of the new spots are #3 Jack Conger and #4 Jack Saunderson.

Men’s 400 IM champ Bobby Finke now moves up to #3 behind Worlds runner-up Jay Litherland. Newly-minted world junior record holder Carson Foster is now #3 while older brother Jake Foster just snuck in for #6.

On the women’s side, Auburn alum Aly Tetzloff and 15-16 NAG holder Torri Huske are now #5 and #6 in a very tight women’s 100 fly top 6. Meanwhile, 17-year-old 400 IM champ Emma Weyant is now the fastest American woman this year in the event.
