Back to back weekends of athletes in action are scheduled in Indy this month. On December 5, the B1G Ten Football Championships took place at Lucas Oil Stadium – and this coming weekend, Olympic medalists from across the US and Europe will make their way to the city for the Mutual of Omaha Duel in the Pool event.
The event originated in Indianapolis in 2003 and since then Team USA has held a perfect record of 6-0 against competitors. Olympic gold medalists Missy Franklin, Ryan Lochte, Nathan Adrian, Tyler Clary, and Matt Grevers are among the US competitors led by the 2008 Team USA women’s head coach, Jack Bauerle.
