Match 9 Day 1 Preview


We are heading to the 1st Day of Match 9 of the Regular Season of the ISL where Toronto Titans, Energy Standard, London Roar and DC Trident are going to be fighting to secure their place in Playoffs.

There will be several very entertaining events today. Starting with the women’s 100m butterfly, watch out for Emma Mckeon who swam a 55.44 in the last match, 22 hundredths of a second away from our League Record set by Kelsi Dahlia.

An exciting battle in the 200m backstroke is also to be expected. In the women’s race, the Titans’ Kylie Masse and Lisa Bratton are going to fight Energy’s Mary-Sophie Harvey and Trident’s Ali Deloof. In the men’s race, keep an eye on Evgeny Rylov from the Energy and Luke Greenbank from the Roar.

If you love fast races, the 50m freestyle is the one to watch. Some incredible swimmers will meet in the men’s race: Trident’s rookie Ryan Hoffer, Titan’s Blake Pieroni, Energy’s Florent Manaudou and Ben Proud, the freestyle skins winner Tokyo’s Katsumi Nakamura and London’s Kyle Chalmers. In the women’s event, there will be an encounter between the following amazing swimmers: Femke Heemskerk and Sarah Sjostrom from ENS, Emma Mckeon from LON, Michelle Coleman and Kasia Wasick from TOR and Linnea Mack from DCT.

In the men’s 200m IM, expect an extremely close combat between Roar’s Duncan Scott and Trident’s Andreas Vazaios.

In the women’s 50m breaststroke, another exciting sprint event, the former WR holder Alia Atkinson will meet a former long course WR holder Benedetta Pilato. In the men’s 50m backstroke watch out for an exciting battle between Energy Standard’s Kliment Kolesnikov and Evgeny Rylov and London Roar’s Guilherme Guido and Christian Diener.

Last but not least, don’t miss out on the medley relays as they bring teams double points & determine the style of the skin races that will take place on day 2.
