There’s no denying that the highlight of Match 5 was the men’s 100 breast, which featured a new world record. Energy Standard’s Ilya Shymanovich blasted a 55.28, which shaved .04 off his previous world record from Playoff Match 3.

In this race, Shymanovich jackpotted 30 points from all the other competitors except his teammate Felipe Lima, who collected 7 points.

Although he didn’t re-break his 50 breast world record that he achieved during the regular season, Shymanovich was able to jackpot 30 points in that event as well. His breaststroke performances during Match 5 earned him the title of Match MVP.

Shymanovich’s World Record – 100 Breast, 55.28

In Match 5, LA Current’s Ryan Murphy set a new American and ISL record in the 50 back (22.53). That time now ranks Murphy as #3 among all-time performances, behind only Florent Manaudou‘s world record of 22.22 from 2014 and  Kliment Kolesnikov‘s 22.47 from the SC European Championships one month ago.

Ilya’s stoke is crazy. That thing is so far from conventional but so obviously effective. If I was a coach I would be taking noteeeeesssss.

I’m not sure it’s “undeniable” that the 100 breast was the highlight. Tori herself said on the podcast that no one cares when Ilya breaks a world record lol.

I would say the highlight was Haughey’s 200. I hope she breaks the WR, but I also hope she saves that for world champs because Energy really don’t need the extra points lol.

Rylov went way past 15m in R2 of the skins. True grit from Murph.

I didn’t notice it at the time but he totally did! It looked like even his feet were past 15m before his arms broke the surface.
