Much like the 2018 version of this meet we fully expect the team race to come down to the powerhouses in Indiana and Michigan. Two other teams to keep an eye on would be Ohio State and Wisconsin, but they’ll need some serious performances to chip away at the depth and high end potential coming from the Hoosiers and Wolverines. While some of the top end swimmers in the meet might not be fully tapered here that doesn’t mean we won’t see some legit swims coming out of people like King, and McHugh so don’t blink. With all of this being said, I don’t think anyone is going to be able to take down the Wolverines.

Momentum is going to be huge in this meet meaning a big night one from these teams will be absolutely necessary in order to jump start their push for the lead. Day two prelims are going to be huge and with a conference meet with as many teams as this one, filling the A and B finals with as many bodies as possible is going to win the meet. Getting your hand on the wall first is definitely important, but it’s going to be just as important - if not more important - in prelims than it will be in finals.

How To Avoid The Post-Swimming Plump

Four hours of cardio per day, intense drylands sessions, all with trainers and coaches watching over you making sure you’re in the best shape of your life for years and then—poof!—you’re on your own. It’s easy to let yourself slip into the post-swimming plump phase, but for those of you who want to stay in solid shape, we’ve got a few tips for you.

Should Swimmers Be Subject To Underwater Officiating?

Officiating has been a growing topic in the sport over the past 10 years as rule changes and advancements in underwater video capabilities have continued. Being disqualified as a kid in a summer league meet is one of the most soul-crushing things a young swimmer can face, but we’re not here to talk about the summer league days… We’re here to talk about the fastest one percent of the sport.

The 200 Freestyle Relay Should Be In The Olympics

For a long time I’ve wondered why one specific event is not contested at the Olympic Games, or at the international level in general. I’m not a huge fan of comparing swimming events to track events, because I don’t believe they perfectly overlap, but in this case I just cant ignore it. 

Swimmers Are Nerds

If you haven’t realized it by now, swimmers are some of the nerdiest athletes in the world of sports. From the sets we do, the counting, the times we go, etc., etc., there’s a lot that goes into becoming a high-level swimmer, and a good portion of it comes down to being just plain nerdy. We’re going to break down the nerdiness of our sport into three categories, counting, data and more data.

Swammers: When Should You Get Back In?

At the end of your career, it makes sense to step away from the pool for a bit. If you come back too quickly you might find yourself with your toes curled over the edge staring at the water for a good 10-15 minutes. You might build up the courage to jump back in with no expectations and swim a 25 just get out, like I did, or maybe you’ll just hit the hot tub.
