RACE VIDEOS: Selected Races From ISL Lewisville, Including Both Skins Races

2019 INTERNATIONAL SWIMMING LEAGUE: GROUP B, MATCH 1

We’ve got race videos and daily highlights from the International Swimming League’s third match, the Group B kickoff in Lewisville, Texas, including both of the thrilling three-round 50 free ‘skins’ races, which cut the field in half with each successive round.

Women’s Skins Race:

It was a gamble of lineup changes, as London swapped Emma McKeon in for Bronte Campbell late in the meet. Did it pay off for the Roar?

Men’s Skins Race:

A brutally close field, especially in round 1. And there was drama aplenty, with another London Roar lineup change (Cameron McEvoy in for Bruno Fratus) and a race delay throwing a wrench into mid-round rest strategies.

Love watching the skins format, the races are always exciting. The only problem is when you have two swimmers for the same team in the final, there’s a lot less tension.

Really cool to see the pros doing back to backs of the type you see in training. Interesting only Kromo and Mrozov did a mini swim down before the last round.

Yeah I think a lowkey point of interest is how athletes are handling that recovery. I think the reality is that there’s not enough information yet to know which is the best way, but some sit and get a rubdown, some stand behind the blocks and catch their breath, some do a little cool down.
