If there has been a silver lining to the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, it’s that a lot of club swim teams, opting to hold meets without spectators in the building, have gotten really good at live-streaming races.
At the Keystone Aquatics meet in Carlisle, Florida, for example, we got a multi-camera look at the weekend’s action, including an on-screen scoreboard picture-in-picture and even a ‘call’ of the meet.
That includes videos of Josh Matheny’s National Age Group Record in the 200 breaststroke, and his all-time 17-18 top 10 time in the 100 breaststroke.
The next day, Matheny swam in the 100 breaststroke, where he took half-a-second off his best time with a 52.02. That ranks him as the 8th-fastest swimmer in age group history – Whitley still holds that record at a 51.16 from 2018 (read more here):
