WATCH: Amanda Kendall Clips Yufei Zhang in 50 Fly Shootouts

2018 PRO SWIM SERIES – AUSTIN

The 2018 TYR Pro Swim Series in Austin brought something new to the table. Swimmers competed in “shootout” style rounds of the stroke 50s. The first round (quarterfinal) included the top 8 swimmers from prelims. The top 4 then advanced to round 2 (semifinal). The top 2 from the semifinal round advanced to the final showdown (round 3).

SwimSwam has put together the videos from the Shootout finals. Below are the videos of the women’s 50 fly. It all came down to Amanda Kendall vs. Yufei Zhang, with Kendall setting a lifetime best 26.07 to win the event. Videos of the other stroke shootouts for the men and women will get their own separate posts. SwimSwam will also be posting the videos of A finals in all other events.
