USA Swimming Reduces TYR Pro Series to Two Sites Due to SoCal COVID Restrictions

USA Swimming has announced that the upcoming TYR Pro Series event, scheduled for Jan. 14-17, has been reduced from a three-site competition to a two-site meet. While the meet will still take place with fields in San Antonio and Richmond, USA Swimming was forced to cancel the Irvine location due to the extension of the Southern California Regional Stay-at-Home Order in place to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

There will be no replacement site for the Irvine locale, but the San Antonio and Richmond sites will be unaffected. The San Antonio meet will feature an invitation-only field that will allow some of the top names in USA Swimming to open their 2021 seasons against strong competition. Both San Antonio and Richmond will host approximately 100 female and male athletes, respectively. All protocols pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic will be followed.

With the turn of the calendar to 2021 and Olympic year, many of the top swimmers in the United States will be using the first Pro Series of the year to start their path toward the Olympic Trials in fine form. For the elite athletes competing later this month, it will be their first competition since the conclusion of the International Swimming League season in Budapest late last year.
