High Winds Expected Again In Mesa On Friday


After heavy winds played a large factor on day 1 of the TYR Pro Series in Mesa, they are expected to continue on Friday.

With winds high all day, peaking at over 24 miles per hour during finals, it was clearly a factor for the swimmers. Friday shouldn’t be as bad as Thursday, but it will still be windy. Winds are projected to be around 12-14 miles per hour during prelims, getting up to over 19 during finals.

However, the wind is expected to subside over the weekend, projected to be around 8 miles per hour for both sessions on Saturday, and just 3-5 miles per hour on Sunday. However, Sunday is expected to be the hottest (with a high of 91 Fahrenheit).

Check out a full recap of tonight’s finals session here.

Is there a certain wind speed where times no longer count like in track?


Only doesn’t count when ezups start flying into the pool


One day in my garden I saw a wind aided butterfly

Sjöström should taper for this meet one year just to break her 50 Fly WR again


She’s been 24.4… Surely 23.9 with a current is doable, right?

40 Flat

24.4 was already with a current.

If the wind speed gets over 30mph it’s because of the DeSorbo Effect.
