Sean Grieshop was a member of the USA 18 and under World Cup Team that participated in the Tokyo and Singapore World Cup stops. This was a huge honor for Sean as only 6 US men made that trip along with 10 US women. These swimmers competed in these high caliber meets against Olympians from around the World with lots of prize money on the line ( for the pro’s ).  Sean performed incredibly well with the following placings and note these meets are conducted in SCM:
4th in Singapore in the 400 im with a 4:07.75
5th in Singapore in the 1500 free with a 14:56.24
