Meanwhile, heat sheets are NOW available! Check them out below!
Hosszu, as always, will engage in an incredibly busy schedule as she continues to earn her moniker the Iron Lady. She’s entered in the 50 back, 100 back, 200 back, 200 free, 400 free, 50 fly, 100 fly, 200 fly, 100 IM and 200 IM for a total of 10 events again. Right now, with the lead she already has in the World Cup, all she needs to do is continue salting away event podium points to win the big money awarded at the end of each cluster.
Additionally, the sprint freestyle events are going to be fun to watch with swimming’s rock star Anthony Ervin in attendance. He’s set to battle some strong FINA World Cup circuit veterans like Roland Schoeman, George Bovell, Bobby Hurley and Kenneth To in the 50 and 100 freestyle events.
Those are just a few of the many storylines that will play out over the next two days of competition.
