Izzy Ivey Going LCM Bests for First Time Since 2016 After Move to Florida


Izzy Ivey is already seeing her move to Florida from Cal pay dividends, as she finished her meet in Ft Lauderdale with a best time in the 200m IM. That was her first PB in the event since 2016. She also swam the 100 free (55.30) and 200 free (2:00.39), races in which her PBs are also from 2016 (54.95, 1:58.94). Ivey says the training has been a hard transition as the yardage at Florida is much higher than she is used to. However, she did say she was finishing her races better than she has in a while, indicating that the training is working.

Interesting. I remember she dropped a lot of time in scy shortly after starting at cal mid-season (PBs in all/ most of her events at PAC 12s, more big drops in the prelims of NCAAs, then again in the finals.) Ivey swam excellent in scy at cal, but her lcm times have stalled for a while. Hopefully she’ll continue to see improvements!

I always thought she would be a force on relays internationally. I hope she gets to that level!
