Swimming World has gathered their selections for the Phillips 66 Nationals and will be revealing our picks for each event as we get closer to the meet. Read below who Swimming World’s team of Andy RossDan D’AddonaDavid RiederDiana PimerJames Sica and Taylor Brien is picking in each event from Wednesday night of the meet.

Last week, we asked our fans on our Instagram stories who they thought would win one event from each day. On day 1, we picked the men’s 100 free as the select event.

The swimmer’s best time of the 2018 season is attached.
