Psych sheets for the 2019 TYR Pro Swim Series in Bloomington have been released. This meet will be the fourth of five spots on this year’s TYR Pro Swim Series as meets have already been completed in Knoxville, Des Moines and Richmond and will be May 16-19. Nathan Adrian is notably making his first appearance in a competition after being diagnosed with testicular cancer January 24.

Adrian’s PET scans came back clean April 22 and said he will be under “close surveillance” and will be having lots of doctor appointments and scans over the next several years. Adrian was diagnosed with testicular cancer on January 25 and underwent surgery to remove some of his lymph nodes on January 29. Adrian quickly made a return to the weight room on February 4 and has been in good spirits throughout this whole process.
