Russia Puts 30 on Olympic Roster 9 Left in Limbo

The Russian Swimming Federation named 30 swimmers to the nation’s roster for the 2016 Olympic Games. These swimmers were selected based on their performances at last week’s Russian Nationals.

The women’s team is lead by Daria Ustinova, who posted the world’s 3rd best 200 backstroke at Nationals. Svetlana Chimrova set the Russian 100 fly record at the meet as well.

Those two women are joined by Sofia Andreeva, Viktoriya Andreeva, Daria Chikunova, Anastasiya Fesikova, Natalya Lovtsova, Daria Mullakaeva, Rozaliya Nasretdinova, Arina Openysheva, and Veronika Popova for a total of 11 women.

The men will be taking 19 swimmers. Sprinter Vladimir Morozov highlights the men’s roster after his performances at Nationals. Evgeny Koptelov will bring some backstroke speed to Brazil. Though not an Olympic event, Grigoriy Tarasevich swam the world’s second best 50 backstroke, and later the fifth best 100, last week. He is joined by National record setter Kirill Prigoda.
