April 14th, 2014 by Annette Griffus

Bremerton gold medalist Nathan Adrian along with long-distance queen Katie Ledecky and Ryan Lochte are set to headline the next Arena Grand Prix meet in Mesa, Ariz.

There’s also this guy named Michael Phelps that will be swimming. Heard he’s pretty good.

The meet is April 24-26 at the Skyline Aquatic Center. Prelims are at 7 a.m. Pacific time and finals are at 3 p.m.

Also competing will be 2012 Olympic gold medalist Matt Grevers, multiple Olympic champion Natalie Coughlin, Anthony Ervin, Jimmy Feigen, Tyler Clary and more.

As for Phelps, his return to the pool is a welcome sight. His 22 Olympic medals are, of course, the most in history.

It’s no surprise that the meet will be televised. Universal Sports Network will show live coverage on April 25 and 26. A live webcast will be available through USA Swimming for the entire meet.
