2019 Atlanta Classic & Atlanta Sprint Meet Updates

2019 Atlanta Classic Swim Meet is arguably the most impressive field since the inaugural edition in 2016, as swimmers based out of the southeastern United States will converge upon the Georgia Tech pool.  We encourage everyone entered in the Atlanta Sprint Meet to come early or stay a little longer to watch the 2019 Atlanta Classic.

That includes both pro and collegiate groups from the University of Florida, Tennessee, Florida State, Kentucky, Auburn, and Georgia, among others. Among the names on the entry sheets: Caeleb Dressel, who has 2 Olympic gold medals and is the defending World Champion in 13 events between long course and short course meets. He’s entered in 5 events: the 100 fly, 200 fly, 100 breast, 200 IM, and 100 freestyle.

The women’s field is even deeper than the men’s, with 4 members of the U.S. team for this summer’s World Championships present: Hali FlickingerMelanie Margalis, and Olivia Smoliga,  They top an impressive field of women that include NCAA Record holder Erika Brown, National Age Group Record breaker Kate Douglass and comeback swimmer Natalie Hinds.
