Pro Swim Series – San Antonio: Summing up the results of the 4th day of the final live

2022 TYR PRO SWIM SERIES SAN ANTONIO

SATURDAY FINAL AGENDA

The last final session of the San Antonio Pro Swim Series will be 1,500 free, 200 IM, 200 back and 100 free.

The men’s 200 IM distance will be twice between the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Michael Andrew and Leon Marshan. Andrew finished 5th in Tokyo in the 200 IM, but is № 3 for the all-time American performer in the event (1: 55.26) after Olympic icons Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte.

The final A not only includes Andrew and Marchand, but Shane Casaswho is a performer № 4 all the time at a distance of 200 yards IM. In addition, Chase Kalisz2017 world champion in the 200 IM, also in the mix.

Toiko Olympians Erica Brown and Claire Curzon tied this morning in 100 freestyle competitions with a score of 54.84. 54.1 Brown from the Westmont Pro series secures her a place in the top 5 in the world, but Curzon seems to be in the world top 5 tonight at another event.

From men, Zack Apple is the first seed in the B-finals after losing in the swim for 8th place this morning. None of the swimmers in the final A have beaten 49 seconds in previous competitions, but several famous athletes can boast personal records of 46.9-47.9, so we hope to see a few athletes reach the 48-second barrier before the international team tests.

Beata Nelson led on the flying leg, receiving 200 IM in 27.8. Margalis sat in 3rd place in the 100-meter distance, but had an excellent breaststroke swim (37.7) to put herself at 0.3 from Nelson. Margalis used her freestyle leg and caught Nelson, which is very reminiscent of how she closed in on the 2016 Olympic Trials to secure a 200 IM seat.

Margalis had just reached her best of the season 2: 12.0, finishing in first place with a time of 2: 12.39. Leah Polonsky was able to overtake Nelson in the last 25 meters, taking 2nd place (2: 12.85) and climbing to 7th place in the world in 2022.

We knew that we were participating in this race, that it would be fast, because in the final A 5 of the 10 best performers for 2022 took part.

Casas came out at 24.59, trailing Andrew by just 0.02. Casas maintained his lead over 100, sharing 54.2 over Andrew’s 55.1. Casas had a solid leg in the breaststroke, still maintaining the lead at 150 meters, but Leon Marchand threw an incredible twine in the breaststroke. This 3rd leg, in addition to his underwater monster, allowed Marshan to pull even with Casas. Casas had to delve into the last 25 as Marshan and Kalisz were now hot on his tail.

Casas was able to secure the victory by destroying his best time and became number 1 in the world in 2022 with a score of 1: 56.70. Marchand finished just behind, setting a new personal record – 1: 56.95, which is the 2nd in the world. Kalisz overtook Andrei in the last leg and finished 3rd and 4th in the world. Andrew finished 4th (1: 59.11), dropping almost a full second from his swim in the previous swim.

MEN’S 100 FREE STYLE

  • World record: Cesar Ciel Filho (ARB, 2009): 46.91
  • American record: Celebrity Dressel (USA, 2019): 46.96
  • US Open record: Ryan Held/Celebrity Dressel (USA, 2019): 47.39
  • Junior World Record: Andrei Minakov (RUS, 2020): 47.57
  • Professional swimming record: Nathan Adrian (USA, 2016): 48.00

8 best finishers:

  1. Keleb Dressel (GSC) – 49.13 / Andrei Barna (CARD) – 49.13
  2. Ryan Held (NYAC) – 49.20
  3. Drew Kibler (TEX) – 49.30
  4. Maxim Rooney (PLS) – 49.38
  5. Carter Swift (UN) – 49.66 / Alexei Tarasenko (TENN) – 49.66
  6. Brett Pinfold (SHAC) – 49.80

Barna was knocked out first in 23.3, but Dressel was close behind him with his 23.5 split on his feet. Dressel used Lane 1 as an advantage when he smoked the whole field and connected Barna with the victory.

Unfortunately, no one reached the 48 mark, but it was nice to see a dense field where more than half of the field ended at 49.3 or less. Ryan Held was able to take his hand on the wall ahead of Kibler and Rooney, who all rolled over in hundredths of a second, but did not have the speed of approach that Held had.
