London’s Kyle Chalmers is only entered to swim freestyle in the mixed 4×100 medley relay while Cali front-runner Caeleb Dressel is not entered on day two of match six, where the Roar built a narrow 13.5-point lead over the Condors.
Yesterday, Chalmers led off the winning men’s 4×100 free relay in a 45.69 before anchoring the runner-up men’s medley relay in 45.24. Today, Chalmers will accompany backstroker Guilherme Guido, breaststroker Alia Atkinson, and flyer Emma McKeon in the mixed medley relay.
Entered in the 100 free today for the Roar will be 400 free champ Duncan Scott and teammate Katsumi Nakamura, who split 46.00 anchoring London’s “B” medley relay. Scott will take on the 200 free with teammate Zac Incerti, who placed seventh in the 400 free yet secured 6 checkpoint bonus points. At the same time, the versatile Scott is entered in both the 100 IM and 400 IM. That will be 800 meters of racing for Scott.
Meanwhile, Condor Caeleb Dressel is absent on day two’s start lists. Yesterday, Dressel earned 12 points in the 100 fly, placed second in his first 200 IM SCM at 1:51.14, but anchored the men’s 4×100 free relay in an out-of-character 47.26. Later on in the medley relay, Dressel put up an in-character 49.24 fly leg to contribute to the winning time of 3:21.29.
Filling in for Dressel in the 100 free will be Justin Ress and Kacper Majchrzak while breaststroker Nic Fink will take on the 100 IM alongside Marcin Cieslak. In the 50 fly, Cieslak will hit the water again alongside Angel Martinez.
In Cali’s top mixed medley relay, backstroker Coleman Stewart will swim the fly leg along with backstroker Olivia Smoliga, breaststroker Nic Fink, and flyer Natalie Hinds. In the men’s 50 free skins, sprinters Stewart and Ress will go against the likes of Tokyo’s Vlad Morozov and Aqua’s Szebasztian Szabo and Alessandro Miressi. London’s Nakamura and Dylan Carter will also take on the men’s skins event.
Also out for the Condors is Molly Hannis. Yesterday, Hannis placed fifth in the 200 breast and third in the 50 breast. She also split a near-identical 100 breast leg as Lilly King in the medley relays, hitting 1:03.68 to King’s 1:03.67. Today, King will be joined by Leonie Kullman in the 100 breast and swim breaststroke in the mixed medley relay.
For the women’s 50 fly skins, London and Cali will go guns a-blazing with Roar members McKeon and Marie Wattel and Condors Beata Nelson and Kelsi Dahlia. Backstroker Nelson will also swim the 50 fly/100 IM double. In for the 100 back today alongside Smoliga will be Sherridon Dressel.
Known sprinter Erika Brown, who placed second in yesterday’s 50 free, will take on the 100/200 free double today for the Condors in lieu of the 50 free skins. During match four, Brown placed third in the 200 back.
