2020 INTERNATIONAL SWIMMING LEAGUE: MATCH 1

For most of us, because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the view of day 1 of the 2020 ISL season was only available through the view of television.

But swimming photographers Mike Lewis and Mine Kasapoglu bring

the world a different view of the opener that saw the Cali Condors sprint out to a big early lead over the defending champions Energy Standard.

Racing for day 2 will begin on Saturday, but for now, enjoy the images of the first day of the ISL.

Love your headline: CALI CONDORS CRACK OPEN A BIG LEAD.
“Crack” has been in the news a lot this week! Glad to see SwimSwam is on board too!

I’m still laughing at the “Chad Le Le” typo from yesterday.

Does anyone know why they have to wear a mask if they are in the ISL bubble?
(not politically charged or anything just curious)
