Last month the International Swiming League (ISL) revealed its inaugural schedule, complete with teams participating in each stop and where those stops will take place. Season 1 concludes with a head-to-head League Championship battle in December in Las Vegas, Nevada.
With such an international diverse roster on each ISL squad, however, there’s bound to be some conflict with domestic racing and/or training camp schedules, as is the case with British athletes.
British Swimming is holding a mandatory National Altitude Training Camp in Flagstaff, Arizona from October 5th-26th and those dates indeed overlap with both Group A’s and Group B’s meets taking place in that same month.
James Guy, a member of London Roar, confirmed to SwimSwam that he will indeed be missing one ISL meet, which is most likely the Lewisville-Dallas, Texas competition.
British athletes potentially affected by the camp are spread around the ISL as follows:
Team Iron – Ross Murdoch
Cali Condores – Mark Szaranek
