2019 Pro Swim Series- Des Moines: Day 2 Race Videos

2019 PRO SWIM SERIES – DES MOINES

Day 2 of the Des Moines PSS featured finals from the 100 free, 100 breast, 50 back, 200 fly, and 400 free. Retaining Knoxville titles in their respective events were Annie Lazor (100 breast), Michael Andrew (50 back), and Hali Flickinger (200 fly).

Making a statement from the B-final of the 100 free was Caeleb Dressel, who despite missing out on $1,500 prize money swam a 48.71 for the 2nd-fastest time in the world this year. Also making a surprise from the B-finals was Kathleen Baker, who swam a 1:08.50. She later won the 50 back with the #1 time in the world just minutes after her breast race.

Chinese teens Bingjie Li and Jianjiahe Wang took the 400 free by storm to post the #2 and #3 times in the world behind Katie Ledecky. Shortly after, Zane Grothe held off Knoxville champion Anton Ipsen for the win.

Caeleb Dressel’s Bandana
1 year ago

Maybe off topic, but USA Swimming uploaded this video about Caeleb Dressel a few days ago https://youtu.be/Hw1p-NUMXjY
In the video, he talks about how he’s motivated after his performance last summer, and it’s also revealed by Troy that he had an injury in the fall and was not able to turn for about 6 weeks.
