Analyzing Day 1 of the 2021 ISL Play-In Match (VIDEO BREAKDOWN)

In the SwimSwam Podcast dive deeper into the sport you love with insider conversations about swimming. Hosted by Coleman HodgesGarrett McCaffrey, and Gold Medal Mel Stewart, SwimSwam welcomes both the biggest names in swimming that you already know, and rising stars that you need to get to know, as we break down the past, present, and future of aquatic sports.

Braden and Barry both give professional insight and numbers into why this is and the other teams’ chances of making the play-offs moving into day 2.
