Daiya Seto, Caeleb Dressel set world records in final meet of International Swimming League season

first_img RELATED PHOTOS LAS VEGAS – Daiya Seto and Caeleb Dressel clocked short-course world records Friday as the International Swimming League brought its high-octane brand to Las Vegas for the season one series finale.Seto, who figures to be a star of the Tokyo Olympics next year, made a splashy ISL debut, clocking 3 minutes, 54.81 seconds to win the 400-meter individual medley. He broke the previous record of 3:55.50 set by American Ryan Lochte at the short course world championships in Dubai in 2010. KEYWORDS “I was going for it,” said Seto, who said the time confirmed his preparations for Tokyo are right on track.Dressel, whose eight medals at last July’s long course world championships included six golds, clocked 20.24 seconds in the 50 free to break the previous record of 20.26 set by France’s Florent Manaudou at the 2014 short course worlds in Doha.Manaudou, who returned from retirement this year in a comeback aimed at the Tokyo Games, settled for second on Friday in 20.69.Seto, swimming for the Energy Standard team, was making his first appearance in the series, which was launched this year with eight teams swimming in six meets — the top four teams advancing to the final.Las Vegas, the U.S. gambling haven known for glitz and risk-taking, was hailed as the perfect venue for a league aiming to shake up the sport, stepping out from under the umbrella of FINA, the sport’s global governing body, and offering significant prize money in a quick-paced format aimed at exciting swimmers and fans alike.“I think what is noticeable about this league is how much chatter it’s creating. It’s a disruptive force,” said London Roar’s Cate Campbell of Australia. “I have had people who don’t follow swimming come up and talk to me.“And I think that really is the first step, getting the name out there and spreading the word and telling people it’s swimming reinvented, it’s a different way of looking at swimming. It’s bringing swimming into the 21st century.”The finals are unfolding steps from the Mandalay Bay Casino, in a high-tech temporary pool erected for the occasion.“I remember going to basketball games as a kid and I’d be like ‘Man, why can’t we have the jumbotron? Why can’t we have the lasers and the light show going on?’ ” said U.S. Olympic gold medalist Nathan Adrian, calling the addition of such elements “awesome.”With a $100,000 prize to be shared by the team that tops the final points standings — and double points on offer on the final weekend — Dressel’s Cali Condors roared off the blocks, winning the first five events before Seto’s dominant victory.“We knew we were coming in hot,” said Cali’s Nic Fink, who beat world champion Adam Peaty of London Roar in the 50 breaststroke.Dressel opened his day with a victory in the 100 butterfly, with Cali teammate Kelsi Dahlia upsetting Energy Standard’s Sarah Sjostrom in the women’s 100 fly.Cali’s Lily King maintained her perfect record in ISL, winning the 50 and 200 breaststrokes to improve to 11-0 in the series.Dressel added add a runner-up finish in the 4×100 free relay to lead the meet MVP standings heading into the final day on 52 points ahead of Cali teammate Fink, who also won the 200m breaststroke and headed into Saturday with 41 points.Sjostrom was in third on 37, but she still led the season MVP race — which carries a prize of $50,000 — with 188.5 points. Dressel was second on 171.

Tim Sullivan’s NCAA tournament bracket

first_imgFull disclosure: I am a fraud. Of the 68 teams in the NCAA Tournament, I have followed only two assiduously. I have seen 13 of the teams in person, maybe half of the field on television since I generally cede the remote control to women who would rather watch Downton Abbey.I have no more expertise about the Eastern Washington Eagles than I do about Etruscan relics. (In point of fact, I didn’t know Eastern Washington’s team was known as the Eagles until I found that fact through a Google search). I like Davidson coach Bob McKillop because he quotes Robert Browning and Michigan State coach Tom Izzo because he plays the accordion.I know just enough to be able to recognize Kentucky’s superiority and Louisville’s limitations and to know that anyone who would study my bracket in search of guidance would be a prime customer for a swampland salesman.Consider yourself warned.C-J Brackets Game | Louisville Courier JournalFinal Four: Kentucky, Duke, Arizona, Michigan StateNational Champion: KentuckyCinderella: Michigan StateBiggest Upset: Michigan State over VirginiaToughest Pick: Northern Iowa over Louisvillelast_img read more
