I can’t wait to see my old teammates on the pool deck — and bring some trophies back home.”

King is happy to represent the Condors.

“I am super excited to be joining the Condors,” King said. “Our first meet is in Indianapolis and it is really cool that I get to do that close to home. The league is really going to change how we view swimming.”
