Olympic Gold Medalist, NEGU AllStar and Jessie Rees Foundation National Spokesperson, Kaitlin Sandeno Hogan is competing in the TYR Pro Swim Series! She is leading as All Star captain of her team for the Series.
How does it work?! Before each meet, the captains will set their lineups with one swimmer assigned to each of six categories—free, back, breast, fly, IM and flex (any two races). Points will be awarded to any A-finalist (10 for first place down to one for eighth place), and the team with the most points at the end of the circuit will win $10,000 for the charity of their choosing!
Kaitlin Sandeno Hogan’s says, “I think the excitement level is going to be different because now these meets, more than experience and getting in there to race, you’re racing for a cause,” Sandeno said. “I hope everybody’s excited for the charity that they’re racing for.”
Sandeno explained that USA Swimming will aim to get at least one of the four captains to each stop on the circuit, and each captain will try to attend two meets. “It’s exciting. It’s next level,” Sandeno said. “I think it’s what USA Swimming needs right now.”
We are honored that Kaitlin would pick the Jessie Rees Foundation as the charity for her team!
