January 2021 TYR Pro Swim Series Event To Change To Two Locations
Following the December 29, 2020, extension of the Regional Stay-at-Home Order for the Southern California Region, USA Swimming, in consultation with the city of Irvine and host club Novaquatics, has made the decision to cancel the Irvine location for the upcoming TYR Pro Swim Series event from January 14-17, 2021. The event will move forward with two competition locations, including the primary site in San Antonio, which is an invite-only field, along with the eastern site in Richmond, Va.
San Antonio and Richmond will feature approximately 100 female and 100 male athletes, respectively. All local, state, and federal health guidelines will be strictly adhered to at each competition site and entry limits will reflect these local restrictions.
Historically, the TYR Pro Swim Series has consisted of a series of 3.5-day long course events, each attracting between 400-600 of the world’s top swimmers including, USA Swimming National Team members, Junior National Team members and top-50 world ranked swimmers.
The January 2021 TYR Pro Swim Series event will air live on NBCSN, Olympic Channel and be live-streamed on usaswimming.org.
USA Swimming continues to look for the best and safest possible ways to host national level events in preparation for the U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Swimming and the Olympic Games in 2021. Future 2021 event dates will be announced in the new year. For more information about the series, visit https://www.usaswimming.org/event/2021/01/14/default-calendar/january-tyr-pro-swim-series.
