USA announces its 2011 Duel in the Pool roster


USA Swimming is lining up a lot of its very best swimmers, to compete against an European All-Star team at the 2011 Mutual of Omaha Duel in the Pool on December 16-17. For instance Amanda Beard, Natalie Coughlin, Missy Franklin, Jessica Hardy, Dana Vollmer and Kate Ziegler, and Tyler Clary, Mark Gangloff, Brendan Hansen, Ryan Lochte, Eric Shanteau and Garrett Weber-Gale. Faroese interest falls especially on Peter Vanderkaay, since he and Pál Joensen swim pretty much the same events, with Pál beating Vanderkaay in the 800 and 1500 at the 2011 World Championships in Shanghai, and Vanderkaay doing the vice versa in Dubai 2010. See the USA roster here.
