As athletes prepare for the new Olympic year, and both the rescheduled U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Swimming and Olympic Games in Tokyo, USA Swimming today announced its 2020-2021 National Team roster. The 115-athlete USA Swimming National Team roster includes 59 men and 56 women.
Following the global disruption to the 2019-2020 season, USA Swimming made the decision to keep every returning athlete from the most recent U.S. National Team roster and add two qualifying athletes: Molly Hannis (Santa Rosa, Calif./Tennessee Aquatics) and Sam Stewart (Hattiesburg, Mass./YMCA Hub Fins). Hannis joins the team following her result in the 100-meter breaststroke at the 2020 TYR Pro Swim Series at Des Moines, while Stewart’s 200m I.M. performance at the 2020 Speedo Sectionals qualified him for the 2020-2021 team.
“I am incredibly proud of the poise and commitment our National Team athletes and coaches have shown as we deal with this worldwide pandemic,”
