008 COMMONWEALTH GAMES REDUX: THE BEST OF THE GOLD COAST
by David Rieder
Australia’s Mitch Larkin rebounded from a disappointing World Championships to win four individual gold medals
at the Commonwealth Games and lead a group of six swimmers who won multiple events.

012 SWIMMING IN THE WIND: MORE THAN JUST RIPPLES IN MESA
by David Rieder
Conditions were less than ideal at the TYR Pro Swim Series in Mesa, Ariz., as strong, harsh winds at the outdoor meet affected the swimmers’ performances.

013 50-METER SHOOTOUTS ARE A BIG HIT AT TYR PRO SWIM SERIES MESA
by David Rieder
Shootout 50s, a new concept for this year’s TYR Pro Swim Series with a quarterfinals-semifinals-finals format—and

014 WHY ALLISON SCHMITT CAME BACK TO SWIMMING
by David Rieder
Three-time Olympian Allison Schmitt has suffered from post Olympic depression in the past, and has helped others deal with their own mental health issues. At the TYR Pro Swim Series in Mesa, Ariz., the eight-time Olympic medalist (four gold, two silver, two bronze) swam at her first swim meet in nearly two years—and thoroughly enjoyed her return to the sport.

016 TIME FOR MICHAEL ANDREW TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP
by David Rieder
Michael Andrew, now 19, became a professional swimmer nearly five years ago…at the age of 14. He’s accomplished
much since then—especially at the world junior level—but he has never qualified for a senior U.S. national team, an Olympics, World Championships or Pan Pacific Championships. With swimmers being selected this summer for Pan Pacs and the 2019 Worlds, Andrew is ready to prove he belongs.
