SwimRVA will host the 2019 TYR Pro Swim Series, after the Richmond region successfully won a bid to be one of the event’s six host cities.
On April 10-13, 400-600 of the world’s top swimmers including USA Swimming National Team members, Junior National Team members and top 50 world ranked swimmers will compete in the meet, held at SwimRVA’s Chesterfield County facility. The TYR Pro Swim Series have proved to be an excellent training ground for Olympians and Olympic hopefuls. Olympian Katie Ledecky broke a world record in the 1500m freestyle at one of the meets in Indianapolis this year. Previous TYR Pro Swim Series events have featured athletes such as Nathan Adrian and Ryan Murphy.
