USA Swimming recently announced its 2019 18 & Under World 100 list. This complete world ranking consists of the top 100 18&U swimmers in each event across the globe. 299 men and 338 women from the United States qualified for the list. Among them are world record holder Regan Smith and National Team members Carsen Foster, Gretchen Walsh, and Torri Huske.


Our very own Julia Podkoscielny qualified for this prestigious list, reaching a global ranking of 57th in the 400 IM, 74th in the 200 Backstroke, and 96th in the 200 IM. Based off of FINA points among all 18 & U swimmers across the globe, Julia received an overall ranking of 175th.
