SOFLO Boys Rule The Pool; Atkinson Tunes Up For ISL Debut At SOFLO Distance IMX/IMR TYR Challenge


By Sharon Robb

PEMBROKE PINES, September 28, 2019—The South Florida Aquatic Club boys stole the show Saturday on the second day of the SOFLO Distance IMX/IMR TYR Challenge at Academic Village Pool.

Lance Lesage, Juan Vallmitjana, Juan Pablo Pineda and Rafael Rodriguez won their individual events.

Lesage, 16, won the 200-yard backstroke in 1:54.22. Lesage was one of five swimmers in the top six.

Vallmitjana , 10, won the 200-yard freestyle in a best time 2:14.43 with a drop of 4.86 seconds.

Pineda, 17, won the 200-yard breaststroke in 2:12.45.

Rodriguez, 17, won his second event of the meet in the 400-yard individual medley in 4:09.92.

SOFLO’s four-time Jamaican Olympian and short course world record holder Alia Atkinson, 30, competed in the 200-yard breaststroke as a tuneup race for her pro debut in a new swimming league. Atkinson won in 2:20.44.

The International Swimming League will open its inaugural season in October. The opener is Oct. 5-6 in Indianapolis. The league will take place in seven cities across the U.S. and Europe and culminate December 20-21 at a custom-built pool in the heart of Las Vegas.

Other dates and sites are Oct. 12-13 in Naples Italy, Oct.19-20 in Lewisville, Tex., Oct. 26-27 in Budapest, Hungary, Nov. 16-17 in College Park, Md. and Nov. 23-24 in London.

The league is attempting to make the sport more exciting and lucrative for swimmers.

Atkinson will swim for Team Iron along with Katinka Hosszu, Ranomi Kromowidjojo, Kira Toussaint, Vlad Morozov, Kristof Milak and Gunnar Bentz.

The three-day SOFLO meet concludes Sunday at 9 a.m.

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, 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.
