USA Swimming has named 6 captains for their 2015 Duel in the Pool team ahead of Friday evening’s start to competition in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The men will be led by Conor DwyerMatt Grevers, and Eugene Godsoe, while the women are headed by Cammile AdamsJessica Hardy, and Caitlin Leverenz. Out of the 6 swimmers, with Godsoe being the exception, have Olympic experience, and all but Godsoe and Adams have Olympic medals.

The United States will try and keep their perfect 6-meet winning streak alive at the Duel in the Pool series, including the last three over European competition. 2013, though, was the most competitive (and really, only competitive) meet since the series started in 2003, with a tie having to be settled at meet’s end by a mixed-medley relay that American teen Simone Manuel anchored to victory.
