Cal Commit Bjorn Seeliger Swims Lifetime Bests in "Stockholm Closed" Meet
SWIMSWAM
March 28, 2020— A group of swimmers who train out of the Swedish capital of Stockholm got together on Thursday and Friday to race at the “Swedish Closed” meet, so-named because it was the opposite of the “Swedish Open” originally scheduled for next weekend. The opportunity was possible because of the uniquely-lax Swedish laws in place to deal with the current global coronavirus outbreak. While earlier this week, the Swedish government had limited gatherings to no more than 500 people, on Friday that number was reduced to 50. The meet was held in 4 timed final sessions (no prelims or finals). Athlete ...
