Watch the Race Videos from Day 4 of Pro Swim Series-San Antonio

2021 PRO SWIM SERIES – SAN ANTONIO (MARCH)

Below are videos of all the championship and consolation final races from Day Four of the 2021 Pro Swim Series – San Antonio. Videos can be found on USA Swimming’s YouTube channel.

The Pro Swim Series-San Antonio wrapped up Saturday night with a world #1 performance for the season by Katie Ledecky in the 800 free. In addition, we saw world top-10 times from Olivia Smoliga and Regan Smith in the 100 back, Ryan Murphy in the 100 back, Annie Lazor in the 200 breast, Madisyn Cox in the 200 IM, and Michael Andrew in the 200 IM. Simone Manuel put up the 12th-fastest 50 free for the season.

Among the highlights from the videos below is the men’s 100 back A final. You can see at about the 2:40 that Coleman Stewart flipped in 4th place behind Ryan Murphy, Kacper Stokowski, and Zheng Quah. When he came out of his turn at around the 3:20 mark, he had pulled nearly even to Murphy and was now in 2nd place. Murphy ended up winning by .9 but Stewart passed Stokowski and touched 2nd. Murphy and Stewart had a famous skirmish in November during the semi-final of the International Swimming League in Budapest, which they claim to have patched up afterwards.

Another highlight comes courtesy of Katie Ledecky who split her 800 in 4:06/4:07, swimming all alone in open water, to lead the world this season by 7.3 seconds.

it appears that the A-Final video for the 200 IM is actually the B-Final video (with Beata Nelson winning)

USA Swimming combined the 200 IM into one long video. Keep watching and you’ll get to the B final eventually.

It doesn’t bother me anymore that Annie Lazor represents Mission Viejo and is in Indiana. If you want to represent a swimming brand name for your club its ok.

It’s who sponsors them I guess if they don’t have an actual club sponsor. Blake still has Sandpipers and so does Cody. It’s very common

I suggest you watch some YouTube videos of Ryosuke Irie if you want to see some perfect backstroke.
