CHARLOTTE, North Carolina, May 17. SWIMMAC's Nick Thoman, one of the top backstrokers in the world who had an amazing winter, sustained an injury that has kept him out of the water since earlier in 2014.

Thoman, who had originally planned on swimming here in Charlotte, had to scratch the meet as he's still rehabbing. He's definitely bummed about not swimming in front of a hometown crowd, but he's excited about swimming at the meet next year.
