Swimming Australia is pleased to announce the team that will compete at the TYR Pro Championships in Irvine, California USA from 26 to 29 July 2023.
The team, made up of experienced Australian representatives and athletes in contention to challenge for a position at next year’s Paris Olympics, will spend a week together in Laguna Hills, California for a Staging Camp prior to shifting their attention to the Championships.
The team will be led by WAIS Head Coach Ben Higson (WA) and Ben will be supported by coaches David Proud (Qld), Janelle Pallister (Qld) and Craig Stewart (SA).
Also supporting the team will be team manager Linley Frame, physiotherapist Tom Barton, massage therapist Michael Thiel-Paul and Biomechanist Nicholas Smith.
General Manger Performance Pathways and Team Lead for the tour, Gary Barclay said: “Providing international racing opportunities for this group of athletes is a key to ensure continued upward pressure for places in the Paris Olympic team.”
“The quality of US swimmers competing at these Championships is very high and this will enable our Australian swimmers to gain further experience travelling and competing one year out from the main game.”
Congratulations to the following team members on their selection to the Australia A team to compete at the TYR Pro Championships.
