SwimSwam Pulse is a recurring feature tracking and analyzing the results of our periodic A3 Performance Polls. You can cast your vote in our newest poll on the SwimSwam homepage, about halfway down the page on the right side, or you can find the poll embedded at the bottom of this post.
Our most recent poll asked SwimSwam readers to pick the most fun event to watch:
Question: Which event is most fun to watch?
- 200 free – 29.3%
- 400 IM – 25.7%
- 50 free – 19.5%
- 100 fly – 14.9%
- 100 breast – 6.0%
- 100 back – 4.8
More than a quarter of voters selected the 200 free as the most fun event to watch, beating a field of five other events by more than 30 votes.
The 200 free topped the 400 IM in a poll where longer, more strategic events took precedent over shorter, sprintier races. The 50 free did earn almost 20% of the votes, but the 100s of fly, back and breast only gained a combined 25.7% of the total votes.
