Emily Seebohm Confident in Energy Standard’s Trajectory Heading into ISL Finale

2020 INTERNATIONAL SWIMMING LEAGUE – SEMIFINAL #1

Reported by Ben Dornan.

WOMEN’S 100 BACK

London’s Toussaint remains on-fire, keeping the 100m back field at bay here after her 50m World Record-setting performance yesterday. 55.90 is what Toussaint put on the board for her fastest result of the season. This ranks Toussaint as the ISL season 2’s 3rd fastest swimmer, snagging 10 points for Roar in the process.

ENS’ Seebohm saw Aussie teammate Kaylee McKeown take down her own national records in the LCM 100 and 200 backstrokes over the past couple of days, but she was laser-focused here, nearly catching Toussaint at the end. Finishing as runner-up for the 4th time in her ISl career, Seebohm snagged 7 points for ENS.

Tokyo did manage to take home 11 points, courtesy of Rio Shirai and Simona Kubova who placed 3rd and 4th.

btw… on Shayna Jack’s Instagram, CAS has found that she did not knowingly or intentionally ingest Ligandrol. She can compete again in July 2021.
fantastic news. There was no doubt in people’s minds who know her but she was certainly greatly rubbished by some commentators on this site. People seem to forget that she did not swim at Worlds 2019 unlike Yang.

Yeah whatever.
That’s your opinion. I also think Brenton Rickard is innocent. Say what you want.

We will never know the truth in these cases. No caught athlete will say “yeah I juiced a little, fked up the timing, masking etc, that’s why I tested positive” People seem to judge most of these cases based on the athlete’s country and how desperate the apology letter is. Both of these thing has mostly nothing to do with the case. Everyone can write a nice tearful social media post about how shocked they are. They must do this. In MY opinion, most of these “accidental ingestion” cases are nowhere near accidental. We just won’t know. Getting a ban reduced seems to be the standard nowadays. Most caught athletes will come up with some cover story. They have to… Read more »

The Australian swim community is fairly small. We have seen them personally host swim clinics, in competition in person, signing autographs, doing many many interviews etc etc. Yes I could be an incorrect judge of character of course. But I bet in these cases I, and many others were correct all along.

I’m sure Sun Yang has signed much more autographs for kids and has done much more interviews than any Aussie swimmer. That doesn’t mean anything. Nobody will act like a dr*g che*t in public eyes.

Has there ever been an athlete who ‘knowingly’ ingest anything?
I find it interesting that almost in every case the athlete is found more or less innocent, even in Sun Yang’s 2014 case. He was given only three months of ban because he ‘was not doing it intentionally’.
