Team USA 2016 Olympians Haley Anderson and Jordan Wilimovsky highlight the field of the 2017 USA Swimming Open Water National Championships, set for Friday through Sunday at Castaic Lake, California.

More than 200 entries are expected across three days of competition, which will determine a number of Team USA international rosters for this summer.

The action begins Friday with men’s and women’s 10-kilometer events beginning at 11 a.m. PT, followed by Saturday’s first-ever Open Water Junior National Championships 5-kilometer event beginning at 8 a.m. and Sunday’s 5K senior-level national championship at 8 a.m. A live webcast of each race will be available online at usaswimming.org.

In addition to Anderson and Wilimovsky, fellow USA Swimming National Team members slated to compete this weekend include Brendan Casey, Eva Fabian, 2012 Olympian Andrew Gemmell, David Heron, Taylor Pike and Ashley Twichell.

This weekend’s races will serve as qualifiers for the 2017-18 National Team and National Junior Team, as well as a number of international events, including the 2017 FINA World Championships, 2017 World University Games and a junior FINA World Cup trip. Six men and six women will qualify for the National Team and National Junior Team. Complete selection procedures are available at usaswimming.org.
