Peaty, Dressel, Hosszu Among Gold Medalists; SOFLO’s Atkinson Finishes 11th On Day Two Of 18th FINA World Aquatics Championships


By Sharon Robb

GWANGJU, South Korea, July 22, 2019—A day after breaking his own world record, Adam Peaty of Great Britain sealed the deal by winning the 100-meter breaststroke at the 18th FINA World Aquatics Championships on Monday at Nambu International Aquatics Centre.

Peaty, 24, made history on opening day as the first man to break 57 seconds in an astounding 56.88, breaking his own world record by 0.22 sconds. He came back in Monday’s finals to win the gold medal in 57.14, fourth fastest swim in history. Peaty is the first male swimmer to win five world championship medals in the breaststroke events.

Brit teammate James Wilby took silver in 58.46 and China’s Yan Zibei won bronze in 58.63.

In the women’s semifinals, Russian Yuliya Efimova(1:05.56), the fastest woman in the world this year, and Amerian Lilly King (1:05.66) are the top two qualifiers for the 100-meter breaststroke.

South Florida Aquatic Club’s Ali Atkinson of Jamaica failed to make it into finals tying for 11th in 1:07.11. The four-time Olympian was a bronze medalist in the event in 2015. Atkinson is also entered in the 50-meter butterfly and 50-meter breaststroke.

Canadian Maggie MacNeil knocked off Sweden’s Sarah Sjostrum in the 100-meter butterfly. MacNeil, fifth at the turn, found another gear to win in 55.83. Sjostrum was second in 56.22 and Aussie Emma McKeon was third in 56.61. American Kelsi Dahlia was sixth in 57.11.

Sjostrum saw her win streak snapped. She held all 10 of the all-time top 10 times and was the second woman ever to break 56. Her last defeat dates back to December, 2012. MacNeil is now the second fastest woman in history.

Clay High School, Bolles Sharks and University of Florida alum Caeleb Dressel won the 50-meter butterfly in an American and meet record 22.35. Dressel is the first American man to win this event at the world championships. It was his second gold medal of worlds.

“That’s faster than two years ago and a better place than two years ago,” Dressel said. “It’s good, good for Team USA and I’m glad I can be a part of keeping that ball rolling.”

Russian Oleg Kostin was second in a national record 22.70 and Nicholas Santos of Brazil, at age 39, was third in 22.79.

Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu started her gold medal campaign with defending her title in the 200-meter individual medley. Hosszu was clocked in 2:07.53 and became the first woman to win four straight titles in an event.

China’s 2012 Olympic champion Ye Shiwen was second in 2:08.60, her first medal since 2011 and best time since 2012. Canadian Sydney Pickrem was third in 2:08.70. American Melanie Margalis of St. Petersburg was fourth in 2:08.91.

Among past or current local swimmers results: 100-meter backstroke, 16. Dylan Carter, Trinidad& Tobago 54.03; 100-meter breaststroke, 11. Alia Atkinson, Jamaica 1:07.11; 200-meter freestyle, 53. Jorge Depassier, Chile 1:53.62.

The world championships has brought together a record 2,620 athletes from 194 countries and territories around the world with 76 sets of medals up for grabs in pool swimming, open water swimming, water polo, diving and synchronized swimming.

The meet will be streamed and televised by the Olympic Channel and live timing will be available.

Peaty Breaks World Record; Ledecky Finishes Second; SOFLO, Florida Gold Coast Swimmers See Action On Day One Of 18th FINA World Aquatics Championships


By Sharon Robb

GWANGJU, South Korea, July 21, 2019—The opening day of the 18th FINA World Aquatics Championships on Sunday at Nambu International Aquatics Centre crowned its first four world champions with some stunning surprises.

Brit Adam Peaty cracked the 57-second barrier to become the first swimmer to do so when he broke the world record in the semifinals. Peaty finished in an astounding 56.88, breaking his own world record by 0.22 sconds. He was on world record pace midway through the race. He will now go after the gold medal Monday night.

“There’s no real words, except for incredible,” Peaty said. “Obviously, I’ve been chasing that for years now. As soon as I touched that wall in Rio, I was like, ‘I could go faster’. It’s a very special journey that we’ve had and hopefully we’ll go a lot faster tomorrow. I said to all these guys down there, it’s still a semi-final. It would be a bit embarrassing to go world record and then not come away with a world title.”

Katie Ledecky, 22, opened worlds with a rare second-place finish. The American superstar lost for the first time on a major international stage, finishing second in the 400-meter freestyle. Aussie teenager Ariarne Titmus reeled her in on the final lap to knock off the five-time Olympic champion.

“I want to try to take it in,” Titmus told reporters, “because that’s not something that happens every day. Before the race my coach said to me just fight. I never thought I would find myself in a situation where I’d be mowing Katie down. She’s such a champion.”

The world record holder in the event was second in one of her strongest events in 3:59.76, 0.21 seconds behind the 18-year-old. She had won every major race at that distance since the 2013 worlds. U.S. teammate Leah Smith was third in 4:01.29.

“Obviously this stings a little,” Ledecky said. “It’s unfamiliar and different. But I need to rebound from this, and I need to get my fight back. I just need to continue to do the things I know I’m prepared to do. I’m prepared to swim fast at this meet. Tonight wasn’t as fast as I wanted to be.”

In the men’s 400-meter freestyle, China’s Olympic champion Sun Yang won gold in 3:42.44, a record fourth gold medal at worlds. Aussie Mack Horton was second in 3:43.17 and Italian Gabriele Detti was third in 3:43.23. American Zane Grothe was eighth in 3:45.78.

The U.S. won the men’s 4×100-meter freestyle relay in a championship record 3:09.06. Relay members included Clay High School and Bolles alum Caeleb Dressel, Blake Peroni, Zach Apple and Nathan Adrian. Dressel swam lead-off in 47.63. Russia was second in 3:09.97 and Australia was third in 3:11.22.

Dressel also broke the American and championship records in the 50-meter butterfly qualifier in 22.57.

Australia won the women’s 4×100-meter freestyle in 3:30.21 with Cate Campbell, Brianna Throssell, Madison Wilson and Bronte Campbell. The U.S. was second in 3:31.02 with Allison Schmitt, Abbey Weitzeil, Margo Greer ad Lia Neal. Canada ws third in 3:31.78.

South Florida Aquatic Club’s Nguyen Vien of Vietnam opened worlds with a 26th place finish in the 200-meter individual medley in 2:17.79 and 19th place in the 400-meter freestyle in 4:13.35.

Among Florida Gold Coast swimmers: Aruba’s Daniel Jacobs was 40th in the 400-meter freestyle in 4:00.69. Venezuela’s Isabella Paez was 36th in 100-meter butterfly in 1:01.27. Marcelo Acosta of El Salvador was 31st in the 400-meter freestyle in 3:55.06. Dylan Carter of Trinidad & Tobago was eighth in the 50-meter butterfly opener in 23.33 and 13th in 23.37 in semifinals to end his finals hope. Joseph Schooling of Singapore failed to qualify in the 50 butterfly finishing 20th in 23.73. Colombia’s Jorge Murillo was 33rd in 1:01.45. Izaak Bastian of the Bahamas was 58th in the 100-meter breaststroke in 1:03.60. Will Pisani was 13th in the 4×100-meter freestyle relay swimming for Canada in 3:15.06.

The world championships has brought together a record 2,620 athletes from 194 countries and territories around the world with 76 sets of medals up for grabs in pool swimming, open water swimming, water polo, diving and synchronized swimming.

The meet will be streamed and televised by the Olympic Channel and live timing will be available.

South Florida Aquatic Club, Florida Gold Coast Well-Represented At 18th FINA World Aquatics Championships When Swimming Begins Sunday


By Sharon Robb

GWANGJU, South Korea, July 20, 2019—When the swimming competition of the 18th FINA World Aquatics Championships begin Sunday, South Florida will be well-represented with talented swimmers including several medal hopefuls.

The eight-day meet will be held at Nambu University Municipal Aquatics Center. Opening day events are the women’s 200 individual medley, women’s 100 butterfly, men’s 50 butterfly, men’s 100 breaststroke, men’s and women’s 400-meter freestyle and 4×100-meter freestyle relays including finals in the 400s and relays.

South Florida Aquatic Club will be represented by Olympians Alia Atkinson of Jamaica and Nguyen Vien of Vietnam.

Atkinson, a four-time Olympian, is the 2018 short course world champion in the 50 breaststroke. She holds both short course breaststroke world records at 28.56 and 1:02.36. In her last Worlds appearance in 2015, Atkinson settled for silver in the 50 breast with her current lifetime best of 30.11. Her season best this year is 30.58, ranked seventh in the world.

Atkinson, who turns 31 in December, is among medal favorites in the 100 breaststroke. She has been as fast as 1:05.93 but not since 2015.

SOFLO head coach Chris Anderson will coach the Jamaican team that also features Michael Gunning and Keanan Dols, who is making his long course worlds debut. Dols will compete in the 100 butterfly and 200 individual medley events. Dols has decided to redshirt at Penn to focus on training for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

SOFLO’s Nguyen Vien, her country’s top swimmer, is one of seven swimmers representing Vietnam.

Vien is known as the most prolific swimmer in Vietnam. She collected 19 gold, seven silver and two bronze medals, and broke 11 records at the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games. In addition, Vien won two Asian Games bronzes, alongside one silver and two bronzes at the FINA World Cup.

Vien will compete in the 400-meter freestyle and 200- and 400-meter individual medleys. She is using worlds as a warm-up for the 30th SEA Games in the Philippines later this year, according to Tran Duc Phan, Deputy Director of the General Department of Sports and Physical Training.

Aruba national record holder Patrick Groters, a NSU University School and Pine Crest Swimming Club alum, will represent Aruba. Groters holds 11 national records and 18 age group records in Aruba. He is a sophomore at University of Denver.

NSU University and Pine Crest Swimming Club alum Daniel Jacobs, 19, is also competing for Aruba. Jacobs, a sophomore at Georgia Tech who currently trains with Azura Florida Aquatics, is a national record holder in the 4×200-meter freestyle and national age group record holder in the 200 and 400 freestyle. He is expected to swim both freestyles.

Dylan Carter, 23, an American Heritage alum, will represent Trinidad and Tobago. Carter is the 2018 Commonwealth 50-meter butterfly silver medalist and 2018 FINA World Short Course bronze medalist in the event.

“This is the most prepared I have felt for a worlds long course I would say in my life,” said Carter, who also plans to compete in the Pan American Games. “I know I am prepared and I know I am ready.”

Florida State, Riviera Beach Suncoast and Lake Lytal Lightning alum Will Pisani of West Palm Beach is one of 13 male swimmers and 25 overall who will represent Canada. Pisani will compete on the 400-meter freestyle relay team, 100 freestyle and 50 butterfly.

Miami’s Isabella Paez will represent Venezuela in the butterfly events. She is a Doral Academy, Duke and Metro Aquatic Club of Miami alum. She will also compete in the Pan American Games.

St. Andrew’s Izaak Bastian of Florida State will represent the Bahamas in the breaststroke and sprint freestyle. As one of the top swimmers in the Bahamas, Bastian competed at the Youth Olympics in the breaststroke events in 2018 before being named as the Male Junior Athlete of the Year by the Nassau Guardian.

Lauren Hew, another St. Andrew’s alum and Florida State swimmer, will compete for the Cayman Islands. nternationally, Hew represented the Cayman Islands at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in seven individual events.

Azura Florida Aquatics has the largest contingent at worlds with 12 swimmers from 10 countries. They are: Julio Horrego, Honduras; Steven Aimable, Senegal; Gabriel Araya, Chile; Tatiana Illis, St. Maarten; Daniel Jacobs and Alyson Ponson, Aruba; Celina Marquez, El Salvador; Mariel Mencia, Dominican Republic; Yeziel Morales, Puerto Rico; Mya Defreitas, Shane Cadogan and Alex Joachim of St. Vincent and Grenadines.

The battle for medals will be between the U.S., Australia and Canada. The U.S. is projected to win 25, Australia 12 and Canada 9.

Olympic qualifying spots for relays will be on the line. The worlds will be the first chance for countries to qualify relays for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The spots go to the nation and not the swimmer foursome. At the Olympics, countries can select any swimmers they wish. There are seven relay events at the Olympics including the new mixed 400-meter medley relay.

The world championships has brought together a record 2,620 athletes from 194 countries and territories around the world with 76 sets of medals up for grabs in pool swimming, open water swimming, water polo, diving and synchronized swimming.

The meet will be streamed and televised by the Olympic Channel and live timing will be available.
