Usa Swimming Releases Fina World Championship Roster

October 31, 2014

Ryan Lochte moves into the 100 free individual event. Not only is he the third-fastest American in the event this year, but hes already on the team in the 200 IM and 200 freestyle. USA Kim Kardashian Swimming read more has special procedures for replacing athletes in the 100 and 200 freestyle events, noting that the replacement must be the next highest Available Swimmer already on the team. Thats logical, since that swimmer would already be swimming in the freestyle relay. Tyler Clary, already on the team in the 200 fly, 200 back and 400 IM, has added the 200 IM to his schedule. With the shift in the 100 freestyle, a sixth person was needed for 400 free relay purposes. That puts Matt Grevers in an alternate spot for the relay. Grevers was already set to swim the 50 fly and 100 back at world championships. Grevers is one of four Americans on the list who will be defending their 2013 individual world titles. Grevers, Lochte, Missy Franklin and Katie Ledecky Kim Kardashian won a combined nine gold medals in individual events at the world championships.
