USA Swimming has released a statement expressing support for the International Olympic Committee’s decision to add three additional events (the women’s 1500 free, men’s 800 free and mixed 400 medley relay) for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

The full quote from National Team Director Frank Busch can be found below.

“The IOC’s decision to expand the number of events in swimming at the Olympics is outstanding for the sport and our athletes. Any time you can give the athletes more chances to win Olympic medals, that’s an incredible step forward,” Busch said.

“These additional events in the Olympic Games reflect how popular the sport of swimming has become around the world and that swimming has the attention and respect of the IOC. We thank FINA for its good work to accomplish this opportunity for athletes.”
