  • Toronto Titans – Lanes 7 & 8 

Start Lists

Monday marks another ISL doubleheader day with Matches 9 and 10 being swum concurrently. We will see a lot of the same match-ups as Match 7, where Energy Standard, Team Iron, and the Toronto Titans competed alongside DC Trident. The big difference here are the Tokyo Frog Kings.

One significant change is that Florent Manaudou and Vlad Morozov are not on the roster for Day 1. Typically Manaudou dominates the 50 free for Energy Standard, but today Sergey Shevstov is racing in his place. Morozov has also won the 50 free for the Tokyo Frog Kings before, and today he is replaced by Shinri Shouri.

Another change is that Energy Standard’s Max Litchfield is back, racing in the 200IM and the 400 free today. He was out of match 6 and 7 due to “undisclosed illness.”

One key event to watch for is the 200IM where Kosuke Hagino will face Max Litchfield and Iron’s Leonardo Santos. Tokyo is currently undefeated on both the men’s and women’s side in the 400IM with Hagino and You Ohashi for the women. Both swimmers have had strong races in the 200IM as well and Ohashi will go head-to-head with the Iron Lady, Katinka Hosszu, in the event today. Ohashi has won 2 out of 3 200IM’s so far, losing only to Melanie Margalis (CAC.)
