Swimming Worlds 2014

We have one more great international sports competition to finish up before we close the books on 2014, and that would be swimming.  

And, this year's FINA World Swimming Championships will kickoff this Wednesday in Qatar, so get ready!  

Because 2014 is an even-numbered year, the format of this competition will be short-course (25 meter), which does have its own set of records and its own genre.  

Here's your USA team:
