Headlining the women’s start list is Japan’s Ai Ueda, who has been dominant on the Pan American Cup circuit this season, recording a win in Salinas and a runner-up finish in Mazatlan. A strong American contingent of Mary Beth Ellis, Jenna Shoemaker, Amanda Felder, Margaret Shapio and Hayley Peirsol will have the advantage of being able to work together to pull off the upset.
