But this past weekend’s Pro Swim Series in San Antonio and Richmond was a welcomed sight for swim fans due to the fact it was the first legitimate prelims/finals meet in a long-course venue since March 2020, a week before the COVID-19 pandemic took hold of the United States. USA Swimming held the U.S. Open across nine different sites in late November, but the meet was timed finals only ...

Jan. 19, 2021— It took almost the entire race, but Ally McHugh finally managed to pull away from Haley Anderson around the 1250 mark of the women’s mile, ultimately winning by two and a half seconds in 16:12.87. The two went stroke-for-stroke for a good chunk of the event, including flipping within a few one-hundredths of each other several times around the midway mark. McHugh also negative split her swim, turning in 8:06.74 at the 750 before closing in 8:06.13. This is the 23-year-old’s third-fastest swim ever, and quickest since August of 2019.

SWIMSWAM
Jan. 19, 2021— The men’s 1500 freestyle was a mirror image of the women’s event, this time featuring Zane Grothe and Will Gallant . The main difference was that Grothe made his move a little bit earlier than McHugh, pulling away from Gallant around the 1000m mark. Grothe, 28, finished in a time of 15:10.29, stacking up as his fastest swim since July of 2019 while also making him the second-fastest American this season. The time is a marked improvement compared to his 1500 done at this time last year in Richmond (15:19.77). Also like McHugh, Grothe negative split the event, going 7:36.23/7:34.06 for ...

Kieran Smith Breaks Down the Approach That Led to Lifetime Best 200 IM (Video)

Jan. 19, 2021— It was a fitting end to the meet for Kieran Smith , who picks up his third win in as many days with a new personal best time of 1:59.38 in the 200 IM. That showing lowers his previous PB of 1:59.56, set way back at the 2017 World Juniors, and ranks him 13th in the world this season. Known for his freestyle prowess, the 20-year-old distanced himself from the field on back, splitting 29.97, before closing strong with splits of 34.83 and 28.92 on breast and free. The top breast leg in the field went to Will Licon , who moved up from sixth at the 100 to second at the 150 in 33.85, ultima ...

Jan. 18, 2021— Kathleen Baker made her move on the backstroke leg of the women’s 200 IM, giving her over a second buffer on Madisyn Cox that she was able to maintain the rest of the way. Looking at the splits, the two were very close on all the other strokes, but Baker’s 32.49 back leg made all the difference. The 23-year-old Baker finished in a time of 2:10.30, moving past Cox to become the second-fastest swimmer in the world this year, with only Australian Kaylee McKeown (2:08.23) ahead of her. It’s also Baker’s third-fastest performance ever, having been 2:08.32 in the summer of 2018 and 2:08.75 ...

Cox had a solid closing 50 in 30.75, managing to out-touch Smith for the win in a time of 1:59.42 to Smith’s 1:59.49. Cox swam a season-best of 1:58.97 at the U.S. Open in November.

Jan. 18, 2021— 2021 TYR Pro Swim Series: Justin Ress, Catie DeLoof Continue Momentum in 100 Freestyle The strength of the men’s sprint scene during the two-site TYR Pro Swim Series over the weekend was undoubtedly in Richmond. After the top three finishers in the 50 free came from the Virginia stop on Saturday night, the 100 freestyle was even more tilted toward Richmond on Sunday evening, as the fastest-four times came from the East Coast. Backing up his victory in the 100 backstroke from a night earlier, Justin Ress took top honors in the 100 free with a mark of 49.18, which was .34 clear of the ...

Jan. 18, 2021— 2021 TYR Pro Swim Series: Ryan Murphy Completes Backstroke Double; Isabelle Stadden Notches Strong 200 Back The way Ryan Murphy looked in his prime events over the weekend, it is clear the reigning Olympic champion in both backstroke events is ready to pursue repeats in Tokyo . One night after posting an excellent January performance in the 100 backstroke, Murphy claimed victory in the 200 back while racing at the San Antonio stop of the TYR Pro Swim Series. Competing in a field that featured only four swimmers, due to minimal entries and scratches, Murphy pushed himself to a winning ...

Jan. 18, 2021— 2021 TYR Pro Swim Series: Kathleen Baker Dazzles in 200 IM; Kieran Smith Grabs Third Win So much is made of Kathleen Baker’s prowess in the backstroke events, and rightfully so. After all, Baker is a former world-record holder in the 100 backstroke and has an impressive collection of international hardware from the stroke. That status, though, sometimes causes her talent in the individual medley to go overlooked. Closing out her weekend at the TYR Pro Swim Series in San Antonio, Baker put together a superb performance in the 200 individual medley, as she prevailed in 2:10.30. That ti ...
