The Toronto Titans Thursday revealed their final roster for the 2020 International Swimming League season, the first for the expansion side. It involves three changes from the early September league-wide unveiling of rosters. The big changes include the absence of Anastasia Fesikova and Kayla Sanchez, both bowing out due to injuries.

Sanchez, an Ontario native who swam for Energy Standard last year, was one of the first signings by the expansion side. The 19-year-old sprinter, who has a shoulder injury, offers lots of versatility and had the potential to be a leader for the Titans. Fesikova won the silver medal in the women’s 200 backstroke in the 2012 London Olympics and would’ve been a valuable backstroke and relay piece.

The Titans were able to add one league veteran in South African Tayla Lovemore, who swam for the New York Breakers last year. British swimmer Candice Hall and Brazilian Olympian Jhennifer Alves de Conceicao step into the roster.

The only change on the men’s side is the absence of Italian Alberto Razzetti over federation issues. In his place are University of Toronto grad Eli Wall and Russian veteran Daniil Pasynkov.
