For the first time in 16 years, the United States is sending a full team of nine artistic swimming athletes to the Olympic Games, having qualified for both the duet and team competitions at the 2024 Paris Olympics.

On Saturday, USA Artistic Swimming announced which nine athletes (of the 12 senior national team members) were selected to head to Paris. Those named to the team were:

  • Anita Alvarez (Buffalo, New York)
  • Daniella Ramirez (Miami, Florida)
  • Megumi Field (Cerritos, California)
  • Jaime Czarkowski (Calgary, Alberta)
  • Jacklyn Luu (Milpitas, California)
  • Audrey Kwon (Seattle, Washington)
  • Keana Hunter (Seattle, Washington)
  • Ruby Remati (Andover, Massachusetts) 
  • Calista Liu (Fullerton, California) **Alternate

Alvarez, 27, is the senior member of the young group who's average age is less than 21. Alvarez is also the only member of the team with prior Olympic experience, having competed in the duet competition at both the Rio and Tokyo Olympics.

"Our confidence is level. Which I feel is a great place to be," Alvarez said in a statement of the team's Paris outlook. "Although every time we get the opportunity to compete, we gain a new sense of confidence in ourselves and what we plan to show in Paris, it also always teaches us simultaneously that there’s still tons of room to grow.” 

Field and Czarkowski will represent the U.S. in both the duet and team competitions.

One of the national team members left off the Olympic rosters was Bill May. May, an icon of the sport and a pioneer for men in artistic swimming, had hoped to fulfill a lifelong dream of competing at the Olympics after a 2022 rule change permitted nations to include up to two men in the team competition.

May had been the sport's best and only chance of achieving male representation at the Paris Olympics. With the 45-year-old missing out, artistic swimming will remain female-only at this summer's Games.
