USA Swimming Releases Psych Sheets For International Team Trials


The wait is over as the psych sheets for the U.S. International Team Trials were released on Thursday afternoon.

The competition will serve as the qualifying meet for the 2022 World Championships and Junior Pan Pacific Championships. Racing kicks off on Tuesday, April 26 and concludes on Saturday, April 30 in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Some of the entries from the top U.S. athletes come as expected, with Caeleb Dressel entering the men’s 50, 100 and 200 freestyle to go along with the 50 and 100 butterfly, while Katie Ledecky takes on the women’s 200, 400, 800 and 1500 freestyle.

Michael Andrew and Claire Curzan have entered seven events apiece, with Andrew in fact on the entry list for the 200 IM despite stating it would not be his focus at the competition.

Andrew is currently on the psych sheet in the men’s 50 free, 50 back, 50 breast, 100 breast, 50 fly, 100 fly and 200 IM, while Curzan is in the women’s 50 free, 100 free, 50 back, 100 back, 200 back, 50 fly and 100 fly.

In the 400 IM, Chase Kalisz is notably entered despite rumors that he’s shifting his focus away from the event this year, while Alex Walsh won’t race the women’s event despite winning the NCAA title in the short course pool last month. Walsh will race the 200 IM, 200 free and 100 breast in Greensboro.

Melanie Margalis is also not entered in the 400 IM.

Walsh’s UVA teammate Kate Douglass has entered six events: 50 free, 100 free, 200 breast, 50 fly, 100 fly and 200 IM. Douglass is the current NCAA champion in three of those events (50 free, 200 breast, 100 fly) and the reigning Olympic bronze medalist in another (200 IM).

Some noteworthy names not entered include Simone ManuelAllison SchmittJacob PebleyMichael ChadwickKevin CordesKathleen BakerJack Conger and Katie McLaughlin.

How can we watch from New Zealand with a VPN – is it the YouTube Olympic Channel or something else??

It’s different to the free Olympic Channel on YouTube. USA Swimming should put it up on their website for us outside the US.

To sum this all up: this meet is going to have many new faces representing team USA at worlds.

They’ve used Regan Smith’s seed time in the 100 back from the heat of the Olympic MMR. I didn’t think lead off legs from mixed relays could be used for anything. Interesting.

It’s up to the national federation if they accept those times for entry into non-international meets. They even accept yards times …

The rule you’re thinking of is the one affecting records tracked by FINA like world records and continental records.

Pretty off topic, but according to UVAs insta, UVA is still training SC. Are most college swimmers still doing that?

UVA trains long course a few days a week all year long.

Bella Sims 200/400/800/1500 FR, 100 FL, and 200 IM?? That’s one tough schedule. Same with Katie Grimes! 200/400/800/1500 FR, 200 BL, 200/400 IM

Surprised not to see Ivey in the 200 free

Agreed. The way she flies and dies in short course would definitely have to be adjusted for LC, but there’s some wide open relay spots that she would have a good shot at.
