U.S. Olympian Anthony Ervin will be competing at the U.S. Masters National Championships next month, according to his agent Emily White.
The 32-year-old Ervin will swim Friday, May 2 and Saturday, May 3 at the event, held in Santa Clara, California. The sprint star should have great shots at breaking the Masters age 30-34 national records in the 50 and 100 free – the 50 record stands at 19.65 set by Nick Brunelli back in 2012, while the 100 mark is 44.53 set by Mike Picotte in 2004.
The appearance will kick off a busy spring for Ervin. He’ll be putting on a Mutual of Omaha Swim Clinic in Aptos, California the Sunday after his Masters meet, and making USA Swimming appearances in Mesa, St. Louis, New Jersey and Los Angeles over the next several months. On top of that, Ervin plans to compete at the Mesa and Charlotte Grand Prix events.
