English swimmers to head to Indianapolis for U.S. Pro Swim Series

Swimming News

A group of 32 English athletes has been chosen as part of a 41-strong British Swimming squad who will travel to Indianapolis for the next round of the U.S Pro Swim Series.

The squad will have a chance to compete against athletes from the top swimming nation in the world. This will provide an opportunity to hone their racing skills ahead of the British Swimming Championships in Sheffield this April.

The British Swimming Championships will be the springboard for selection to this year’s international events, including the 2017 FINA World Championships in Budapest.

This event is also a way to bring the podium and podium potential squads together to learn from each other. Athletes, coaches, management and support staff will all work closely together to enhance the transition of athletes from junior to senior level.

British Swimming Head of Elite Development Tim Jones said: “Over the past three years we’ve tried to work closer together as a combined podium and podium potential world class programme.

“This event is a good example of where athletes and the wider team can learn from each other at all levels. It’s not just a case of juniors learning from seniors. There is a real benefit to be had for all as we implement athlete behaviours across all levels within programme.

“The event will offer finals across four levels and therefore gives a broader section of athletes and coaches that opportunity to practice the processes they need to define between heat and final swims.”

The Pro Swim Series will take place at Indiana University from 2 to 4 March.
