Almost half of voters were most excited for the Tennessee Invite compared to four other major college swimming & diving invitationals.
A little more than half of voters expected the London Roar to win the European ISL derby – not as overwhelming as the poll results from the American derby.
It’s a case study all-too-relevant to swimming: one player’s tendency for unwanted touching leads to a tricky and imperfect analysis of perception and safety.

About 70% of SwimSwam voters said Ryan Lochte would make the 2020 U.S. Olympic team, which would be his fifth straight Olympic berth.
Despite consternation among commenters, 60% of voters said allowing NCAA student-athletes to earn name/image/likeness money would be good for all athletes.
An overwhelming majority of voters say the swimmers on each team’s roster are the deciding factor in which ISL franchise they’ve been rooting for.
With the second ISL meet in Naples wrapped up, I thought we’d return to some of the numbers I showed last week and see how Naples compared to Indianapolis.

Three rounds are behind us, and the 400 IM and 200 fly have made the final by identical 71-29 margins in the semifinals.
After a bunch of blowouts in round 1, we saw things get very tight in round 2, including a brutal 200 free vs 500 free matchup.
