This weekend will feature ‘Group A’ in a rematch of last weekend’s meet. The teams are below with some of their key roster moves for Naples. Links will go to full announced rosters, if available:
- Energy Standard: skins race winners Sarah Sjostrom and Florent Manaudou will return, along with standout Chad le Clos. Energy Standard will return its entire winning roster from the Indy meet, but will add Fantine Lesaffre.
- Cali Condors: the roster with the most turnover so far. The big news is that Cali will get star sprinter Caeleb Dressel, the best hope of breaking up Energy Standard’s stranglehold on the triple-point skins races. On the other hand, the roster will lose major scorers Hali Flickinger, Townley Haas and Kelsey Wog from Indy.
- DC Trident: DC will also see significant turnover from the Indy meet. Distance star Katie Ledecky and Olympic icon Natalie Coughlin are out, though Kevin Cordes will join the team on the men’s side.
- Aqua Centurions: we have no official roster for the Aqua Centurions at this point.
Here’s a look at this weekend’s event schedule. Each session is broken into three blocks, each of which ends in a relay event, which is then followed by a break, though the exact length of the breaks has not been specified.
|WOMEN’S EVENT #||DAY 1||MEN’S EVENT #|
4×100 Free Relay
|4×100 Medley Relay||12|
|4×100 Free Relay||19|
|WOMEN’S EVENT #||DAY 2||MEN’S EVENT #|
4×100 Medley Relay
|33||4×100 Mixed Free Relay||33|
|36||50 Free Skins||37|
|38||4×50 Mixed Medley (if tiebreak needed)||38|
SCORING & POINTS BREAKDOWN
Scoring for each event will be as follows:
|INDIVIDUAL EVENT||RELAY EVENT||SKINS RACE|
Relays count for double, and skins races effectively triple if you make it to the third round; if eliminated in the second round, an athlete earns double points, but if knocked out in the first round, the point totals are the same as a normal race.
PRIZE MONEY FORMAT
Athletes and relays earn money for top-4 finishes under the following system, which we’ve simplified based on the ISL ‘money point’ system:
