TYR Pro Series Set to Resume in Westmont With Star-Studded Field (Psych Sheets)

Although the COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of recent action in the USA Swimming TYR Pro Series, action is expected to resume this week in Westmont, Illinois. The location was selected as an alternative option for competition after series stops in Knoxville and Des Moines were canceled. According to the pre-meet psych sheets, which could see changes, Olympic champions Caeleb Dressel and Katie Ledecky are entered in the meet.

Some of the biggest names in the sport are listed on the psych sheets, headlined by Dressel and Ledecky, the Olympic stars who are training together at the University of Florida under coach Anthony Nesty. Ledecky is entered in her typical distance-freestyle events while Dressel is slated to contest the three events in which he won Olympic titles last summer in Tokyo – 50 freestyle, 100 freestyle, 100 butterfly. Dressel is also entered in the 200 freestyle.

If the psych sheets hold, the past two Olympic champions in the women’s 100 breaststroke will meet when Lydia Jacoby and Lilly King step onto the blocks. Additionally, backstroke standout and Team USA veteran Ryan Murphy is set to race his prime events, the 100 backstroke and 200 backstroke. Meanwhile, Michael Andrew is staring at a full schedule, with the likes of Claire Curzan, Kelsi Dahlia and Shaine Casas also entered in the meet. Curzan recently set an American record in the 100-yard butterfly.

The Westmont stop of the TYR Pro Series is scheduled for March 2-5.
