FINA SC World Champs begins in 10 days. While some people are still sleeping off their Olympics hangover, we are looking forward to the continued youth movement. A quick look at the American roster and you’ll see how young the team is.
You’ll find it chuck full of youngsters chomping at the bit to make their own name. After the Olympics, we tend to see eye popping times due to a lengthy focus on LCM. Look no further than the 2016 College Challenge…
Ali DeLoof, 100 Back, 50.59
Mallory Comerford, 100 Free, 47.36
Kelsi Worrell, 100 Fly, 50.46
Tom Shields, 100 Fly, 45.00
Lilly King, 100 Breast, 57.30
Michael Andrew, 100 Breast, 51.90
America isn’t the only country bringing in the young guns. You’ll notice every roster this way. This, to me, makes SC World Champs very exciting. The future of swimming will be in Windsor, Ontario.
Thankfully, America focuses our development on short course and touching the wall first. Not to mention the entire coaching staff is made up of elite college coaches. Team USA is in good hands.
