Michael Andrew swam three lifetime bests at the 2020 Pro Swim Series in Des Moines a couple weekends ago and his new vlog gave us behind the scenes.
This weekend really blew my socks off for a beginning of March, in-season meet. We saw many top times in the world & so many historic, top-10 all-time swims.
Backstrokers Ryan Murphy and Regan Smith lead the 2020 Pro Swim Series as the Des Moines stop produced 16 of the top 20 swims of the season in FINA points.
Regan Smith earned the most prize money of any athlete for a second-consecutive Pro Swim Series stop, and she now leads the entire series in earnings at $13K.
