- LCM (50m), Prelims/Finals
- Psych Sheets
It’s time for another live stream two-step at the 2019 U.S. Open Swimming Championships in Atlanta. As has become the standard operating procedure for these meets, portions of the event will be live-streamed free on usaswimming.org, while other parts will be webcast on nbcsports.com (starting with Friday’s “A” finals, which will be the only session that will air live on television).
For those hoping to keep up with the entirety of the meet, note that the sessions don’t begin at the same time every day. Specifically, Saturday morning’s prelims session begins at 8:00AM – 2 hours earlier than the other days. This move will help jam in the B flight of the meet before the afternoon heats of the men’s and women’s 1500 freestyles begin at 1:10 P.M.
The meet will be flighted, which helps keep the sessions relatively short for the “top tier” swimmers. The 6 fastest-seeded heats of each event will go off in session 1, followed by the remainder of the athletes in each race thereafter. Athletes from the B flight are able to qualify for finals.
