2020 ISL Grand Final: Dressel, King, Gastaldello Win MVP Honors (Money Table)

2020 International Swimming League

Thank you to Barry Revzin for the analysis.

For the final time this season, Caeleb Dressel of Cali Condors outscored everyone on the pool deck and walked away with the top MVP bonus. Dressel racked up a whopping 96 points, made all the more impressive by the fact that he did not advance past the first round of the skins race. But where he won, he won big, earning a total of 39 Jackpot points over the two-day meet. Individually, he touched first in the 50 free, 100 free, 50 fly, 100 fly, and 100 IM (with a 30-point Jackpot steal) and he contributed to three Cali relays. That, together with his fifth-place finish in round 1 of the breaststroke skins, gave him a total of 96 points which translated into an MVP bonus of $20,000. Dressel pocketed $55,400 for his work in the ISL Grand Final.

Lilly King of Cali Condors proved once again what a poised and steady competitor she has been, having won her handful of events day in and day out throughout the season. She emerged victorious in the 50, 100, and 200 breast, with a total of 22 Jackpot points, and pulled off her 5th skins win of the season. (She also won all 15 rounds of those skins races.) She also contributed to the winning women’s medley relay. All told, King scored 71 points to snag the second-place bonus of $12,000.

If they had a team only composed by 4 Bolles alumni (Santo rested, Schooling in his prime pre-Olympics, Caeleb and Murphy) they would’ve in my opinion beat Aqua and DC Trident’s Team (men’s side only) in a dual meet.
