SOFLO’s Rafael Rodriguez Opens With A Win In SOFLO Distance IMX/IMR TYR Challenge


By Sharon Robb

PEMBROKE PINES, September 27, 2019—South Florida Aquatic Club swimmers dominated opening night of the SOFLO Distance IMX/IMR TYR Challenge Friday at Academic Village Pool.

Rafael Rodriguez, 17, won the 1,000-yard freestyle in 9:56.38 ahead of SOFLO teammate Dominic Bono, 16, in 9:58.93.

SOFLO had 13 swimmers among the Top 20 boys finishers.

Mallory Schleicher, 15, led the SOFLO girls placing second in 10:28.04. She was one of eight SOFLO swimmers in the Top 20.

The three-day meet continues Saturday at 9 a.m. with timed finals. In addition to host SOFLO, other teams competing are City of Miami Parks, Hialeah Swim CLub, Midtown Weston, Pompano Beach Piranhas, St. Andrew’s and Shelton Doral.

Over three days, SOFLO swimmers are getting the opportunity to get a chance to see how they stack up against the rest of the nation’s age group swimmers.

Up-and-coming swimmers will compete in the IMR (Ready) Challenge. All sessions are timed finals.

The USA Swimming-sanctioned meet is a fun, motivational meet to help young swimmers reach the next level in their swimming careers.

The IMR Challenge allows swimmers to see how they compare to other swimmers around the nation in their age group. Swimmers must compete in all the events required for their age group to establish a score.

Once a swimmer competes in each IM Ready event at least once in an official meet, swimmers and parents can check their rankings on USA Swimming’s website.

The IMX (Xtreme) Challenge is the next step-up from the IMR competition. It includes a series of five or six events. Once swimmers complete the IMX program they can also see where their score ranks nationally, among their local LSC and own swim club.
