Most of the ISL teams have dealt with rosters reducing due to illness or other reasons, however the Condors lost their top athlete in Caeleb Dressel. It was reported that Dressel was under the weather upon returning to Eindhoven and would sit out from Playoff Match 6.
However, the Condors prevailed without Dressel, winning Playoff Match 6 with 532.5 points, almost 100 points ahead of Team Iron (446).
One of the most anticipated races for Match 6 was Kesli Dahlia and Ranomi Kromowidjoji in the women’s 50 fly.
Dahlia won the 100 fly (55.61), placed 2nd in the 50 fly (24.88), and swam fly (56.04) on Cali’s victorious 400 medley relay. Kromowidjojo defeated Dahlia in the individual 50 fly and the first two rounds of 50 fly skins, however Dahlia prevailed on the 3rd round of skins, which hauled in 28 total points for the Condors.
