The psych sheets are available for the Mesa Grand Priz meet in Tucson. You can find them here.
The 100-meter freestyle reads like a who’s who of swimming’s best.
Olympic champion Nathan Adrian of Bremerton, who is ranked No. 3 in the world, is seeded first in the 100-meter freestyle in 47.52 seconds. Jimmy Feigen is second in 47.82 and France’s Yannick Agnel is third (47.84). Anthony Ervin (47.89), Ryan Lochte (48.58), Conor Dwyer (48.94), South Africa’s Roland Schoeman (49.00) and Michael Phelps (49.05) round out the top eight.
That’s A LOT of international medals right there.
Ervins is ranked first in the 50 free in 21.42, followed by Nathan in 21.47, Schoeman (21.67), Josh Schneider (21.78), Feigen (21.88), Matt Grevers (22.09), Karl Krug (22.15), Alex Coville (22.19) and Shayne Fleming (22.35). Nathan is ranked No. 6 in the world in the event.
The 100 free is Thursday and the 50 free is Friday.
Swim fans are dying to get to this event and it’s quickly become a star-studded affair. Within 48 hours of the announcement that Phelps would be swimming, the event was sold out.
FUN PICTURE OF THE DAY: I really like this picture. It was shot from the World Championships in China in 2011. Would still like to find out what they’re laughing about. Wouldn’t you?
