SWIMSWAM
Jan. 21, 2021 — The Energy Standard Training group, usually based in Turkey, has been unable to resume training there since before they dispersed for the Christmas break due to the coronavirus pandemic. Current travel restrictions, as a result of rising Covid-19, have meant that the group never returned in the new year to their base in the Gloria Sports Arena. With the pandemic worsening in many countries across the world, head coach James Gibson said: “It’s not the best time to run an international program.” He added: “All of the group are training at home to get some consistency in their work towa ...

SWIMMING WORLD NEWS
July 17, 2020 — 17-year-old Anastasiya Shkurdai of Belarus blasted a 56.95 in the 100 butterfly at the Belarusian Cup in her home town of Brest. Shkurdai, who was the silver medalist at last summer’s World Junior Championships behind American Torri Huske in the 100 butterfly, broke her own national record of 57.39 set last year at the European Juniors. She had been as fast as a 58.2 earlier this year in March, and is not far off of the current world junior record of 56.46 set by Canada’s Penny Oleksiak on her way to Olympic silver in 2016. The time puts Shkurdai third in the world rankings for 2020 ...

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 ...

Open Water Olympic Qualifiers from 2019 Worlds Will Remain Qualified for Tokyo
SWIMSWAM
March 28, 2020 — The International Olympic Committee has confirmed that athletes already qualified “by name” for the 2020 Olympics will remain qualified for the postponed Games, NBC Sports’ Nick Zaccardi reported Saturday . The IOC had said Thursday that athletes who had already qualified would get to keep their spots — but many of those spots are controlled by national Olympic committees, rather than the international organization, so that news was somewhat unclear. What this ruling definitely applies to now is open water swimmers who qualified out of the 10K race at the 2019 FINA World Championship ...

March 15, 2020 — In addition to Kyle Chalmers ripping a 51.37 lifetime best in the 100m fly to become Australia’s 3rd fastest performer all-time, there were several other head-turning swims that wrapped up the 2020 New South Wales State Open Championships. For starters, 25-year-old Olympian Emma McKeon turned some heads with her stellar gold medal-worthy time of 1:55.38 tonight in Sydney. After playing it cool in the morning heats with a casual 1:59.65, the Griffith University swimmer unleashed splits of 55.63/59.75 to beat the field by over a second en r ...

SWIMSWAM
March 14, 2020 — Swimming is still going on strong down under, as day 2 of the 2020 New South Wales State Open Championships took place today at Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Center (SOPAC). Day 1 brought super quick times across the board, including Kyle Chalmers ‘s double of a 1:57 200 fly and 48.2 100m free, but Emma McKeon was delightful as well, producing a 100m free time of 53.00 and 50 fly effort of 25.87. McKeon was back at it big time today, hitting a monster time of 56.36 to take the women’s 100m butterfly in a new All Comers Record.
