- Teams: London Roar, DC Trident, Aqua Centurions, Iron
In the lone relay on day two of the ISL’s second match in 2020, the DC Trident picked up its first win in club history.
The Trident won the mixed 400 freestyle relay in a time of 3:18.82, managing to hold off the London Roar (3:19.08) and Aqua Centurions (3:19.22) down the stretch. This marked DC’s first-ever ISL relay win in its fourth match.
The win ended up being a major factor in the final standings, as the Trident placed third over the Aqua Centurions by six points, the exact same margin they outscored them in the relay (18 points to DC for the win, 12 to Aqua for third).
Below, we’ll take a look into the splits of the mixed event and look at who the difference makers were.
Men’s Lead-off Splits
|Zach Apple (DCT)||45.98|
|Marcelo Chierighini (AQC)||46.69|
|Clement Mignon (IRO)||47.14|
|Gabriel Santos (AQC)||47.17|
|Maxim Lobanovszkij (IRO)||47.32|
|Marius Kusch (LON)||47.81|
|Velimir Stjepanovic (DCT)||48.23|
|Scott McLay (LON)||48.43|
Zach Apple was on fire all meet, and he came through once again as he hit 45.98 on the lead-off for DC to give them a lead of over seven-tenths of a second. Apple ended up clocking 45 on four different occasions for the meet – twice on relay splits on day one, and twice from a flat start on day two.
Marcelo Chierighini didn’t swim the 100 free individually (which Apple won), but did put up a strong 46.69 lead-off here for the Centurions.
Men’s Flying Splits
|Alessandro Miressi (AQC)||45.77|
|Szebasztian Szabo (AQC)||46.44|
|Robert Howard (DCT)||47.01|
|Vini Lanza (LON)||47.17|
|Mikhail Vekovishchev (LON)||47.53|
|Thom de Boer (IRO)||47.75|
|Matheus Santana (DCT)||47.83|
|Nicholas Santos (IRO)||47.89|
Like Apple, Alessandro Miressi had been throwing down some scorching swims throughout the match, and did so once again with a 45.77 second leg. The Italian actually had the exact same split on day one, when he anchored the Centurions home to victory in the men’s 400 free relay.
Szebasztian Szabo‘s 46.44 was crucial in putting the Centurions ‘B’ squad into fourth, beating both Iron teams.
Women’s Flying Splits
|Anna Hopkin (LON)||52.05|
|Marie Wattel (LON)||52.05|
|Margo Geer (DCT)||52.70|
|Ky-lee Perry (DCT)||53.13|
|Valentine Dumont (AQC)||53.36|
|Larissa Oliveira (AQC)||53.40|
|Siobhan-Marie O’Connor (LON)||53.62|
|Madison Kennedy (DCT)||53.82|
