Shaine Casas came to play at the San Antonio Pro Swim, dropping some monster swims. He ripped a 51.1 100m fly and a 53.5 100m back, but his back was a little off, and he did say he barely hit the wall on the turn.
His best swim was that 1:56.7 200 IM–but he’s not swimming at the International Team Trials (aka U.S. World Championship Trials) in Greensboro, N.C. April 26-30. On that topic, what is Shaine racing? Based on this interview it sounds like 100 and 200 back and 100 fly are locked in. 50 back is a probably. 50 fly is a maybe. 100 free is on the table, but he’s not 100% sure yet.
Shaine Casas World Trials Predictions!
I am only predicting he makes Team USA. Shaine is a HUGE talent. He simply needs to get on-deck representing the Red, White and Blue. He just needs the experience. In what event does he have the best shot? You tell me, because if he makes Team USA this year, 2023 and 2024 will be whole different conversation.
