Some Bears-related results from 2018 European Championships @ Glasgow (tho would like to interject with a well done! with regards to Freya's brill return to form, and of course Peaty's studly WR ) :

-----

  • * DAY 2 Semis & Finals *

Our Dutch Bear Robin anchored NED's Mixed 4x200m Free relay with a 1:59.83 for a team finish of 5th in the finals session.


Not certain what Marina's personal record is for the 100 Breast in LCM (think she went a 1:07.97 @ Kazan 2015, and was 1:07.58 at this year's Mediterranean Games), but she laid down a swift 1:07.48 in the semis of Euros to qualify for tomorrow's final in the 6th seeded spot. Excited to see if Marina can drop her time further in finals, and how she will fare at her better event (200m Breast) on Monday.

-----

Here's a recent writeup on our Catalan swim alum:

Marina Garca and the fight to validate the best version of herself



Marina shined in 2012 and in 2013 and, after 4 years in the United States, where she made a fruitful combination of studies and technical improvements, she has once again taken full advantage of her return to Spain.

Marina had taken a courageous step: she decided to combine studies and swimming with a scholarship at the University of Berkeley in the United States.

She betted on studying. She faced four years focussed more on technical improvements than on short-term results.

"The biggest difference is that I'm not studying anymore because I've graduated. I am also back in my country and there are many changes with respect to the United States. Life there is difficult when you are a foreigner, but I have learned many things at Cal, both personally and as an athlete. It is something that I will always carry with me and I am very grateful. I would not change it for anything", she says of that stay on the other side of the pond that has made so much of a mark on her.

That personal growth has been transformed into growth in the pool on her return to Spain.

Marina is the third fastest European and the best Spanish swimmer in this year's Women's 200m Breast rankings thanks to a spectacular performance a few days ago in the Spanish Summer Championship, where with 2:23.36 she achieved the second best mark of her life (her best is a 2:22.88 from that 2013 World Cup in Barcelona).


-----

  • UPDATE #1 => * DAY 3 Morning Heats *

Robin (aka "Rob"/"Robiloks"?? ) is through to semis with her 1:59.91 in the 200m Free.

http://instagr.am/p/BmGGB8EBhTp

-----

  • UPDATE #2 => * DAY 3 Semis & Finals *

-> Marina places 6th in the 100m Breastfinal, with a 1:07.55. Dead last at the halfway mark by quite a bit, then stormed back ahead of two of her competitors.


-> Robin ends up 13th with her 2:00.39 in the semis of the 200m Free.


-----

  • UPDATE #3=> * DAY 4 Semis *

-> Marina is the #2 seeded qualifier behind Efimova for tomorrow's 200m Breast finals, after busting out a 2:24.31 in the semis!


-----

  • UPDATE #4 & #5 => * DAY 5 Finals *

-> Marina just off the 200m Breast podium by 0.2 sec, places 4th with a 2:23.63, more than a sec ahead of 5th place finisher and WR holder Rikke Moeller Pedersen.



http://instagr.am/p/BmL9vyBBPSX


-> Robin led off for Team NED, helping her teammates to finish 6th in the 4x200m Free Relay.
Could have placed considerably higher if they had brought in their ace veteran Femke Heemskerk (worth a 1:55 split with a flying start)...

SwimSwam Preview:
2018 Junior Pan Pacs Day 1 Preview: US Backstrokers, Tuggle & Urlando
Prelims Heat Sheet / Live Results

To watch Jr Pan Pacs, they should be streaming it here.
Only the top 4 get to swim in finals, so it'll be a battle during prelims for the USA swimmers.

Quick overview of the heat sheet:
W 200 FREE
Heat 3 should feature Izzy in the middle lane, with heat 4 with 2021 recruit Gretchen Walsh, along with 2020 recruit (swimming for Ecuador, interesting), Anicka Delgado. Heat 5 will feature the top seed, Claire Tuggle, in lane 4.

M 200 FREE
Lots of racing in the 200 free heats, with Jake Magahey swimming in the center of heat 3, and both Destin Lasco and Dare Rose in heat 4.

W 100 BACK
The 100 back will be an interesting race to watch, with Katharine Berkoff in heat 3, battling 2018 LSJU commit Lucie Nordmann, with Alex Walsh, Phoebe Bacon, and Isabelle Stadden in lanes 3-5 of heat 4, along with Maxine Parker in lane 1.

M 100 BACK
Men's 100 back will also be interesting to see who will make the A final, with Destin Lasco and Tim Connery in heat 4 trying to beat out UT commit Peter Larson for the A final.

W 200 FLY
The other Nordmann sister, Lillie, will try to beat the three 2018 commits to make it into the A final from heat 2.

M 200 FLY
Gianluca Urlando will try his hand at Michael Phelps's 15-16 NAG record, and see if he can beat current bear Andrew Seliskar's meet record of 1:55.92 in heat 2, also featuring 2020 recruit Ethan Heasley.

W 800 FREE / M 1500 FREE
In heat 1, Mariah Denigan and Emma Weyant will battle it out, and Lola Mull will be out in heat 3, with the boys swimming in between.

Prelims have started, and the announcers aren't too informed, as they said the 200 free was the 200 back, and called Ella Nelson a UVA swimmer (not yet!) and said Izzy was going to Cal this year (not exactly false, but)

Izzy a 1:59.69 to win the 3rd heat

Gretchen Walsh 2:01.4 to place 3rd in the 4th heat.
bearz012
How long do you want to ignore this user?

Claire Tuggle 1:59.36 to win the final heat.

Tuggle & Ivey should make A final, Walsh & Zoie Hartman for the B final.

Looks like the relay is going to be Ivey, Walsh, Hartman, and Tuggle, in that order (2nd, 3rd, 4th, 1st), unless they decide to add Nordmann.

Bacon first in a sizzling (lol) 59.72, with Alex coming in at second in 1:00.56, and Isabelle in third in 1:00.60. Rough for Stadden, as she won't be making any final, and getting outtouched by just 0.04. Nordmann & Berkoff swim off to see who makes the A final.

Men's 200 free - Magahey qualifies second behind Kibler in 1:48.65, with Dare Rose also qualifying for the B Final in 1:49.65. Think the 800 FR will be Magahey, C.Foster, Rose, Kibler.

  • 2018 Jr Pan Pacs - * Day 2 Finals *

On the run so 'fraid this isn't going to be one of those super duper recaps in the bearz012 mode lol - just wanted to congratulate 2019 Baby Bear Izzy Ivey on her pivotal role in helping Team USA to smash the Jr Pan Pacs record in the Women's 4 x 200m Free Relay !


Lucie Nordmann (2018 furdette), Gretchen Walsh (2021 recruit), Isabel Ivey (2019 Bear), Claire Tuggle (2022 recruit)

Izz had wiped out the Americans' half sec deficit, pulling her country into the lead at the conclusion of her 2nd leg in a hard-fought & close battle with the Oz team all the way until the last leg. Old meet record courtesy of a team in the supersuit era comprising of Bear alum Cat Breed and former furdette Andie Taylor...




Izzie had earlier on in the session won the 100m Free 'B' final, with top seed Alex Walsh (2020 recruit) claiming the runner-up spot.

2018 JUNIOR PAN PACS: DAY 2 FINALS RECAP


GIRLS' 800 FREE RELAY - FINAL
  • USA - 7:57.93 (Meet Record) - Tuggle, Ivey, G. Walsh, Nordmann
  • Australia - 7:59.97 - Pallister, King, Ryan, Webb
  • Japan - 8:09.03 - Ikemoto, Ibayashi, Nakamura, Namba

The 2018 edition included two veterans and captains, Ivey and Nordmann, plus two swimmers in Tuggle and Walsh that are among the youngest on the squad and who will be eligible to carry the torch forward in 2020 (if they haven't made 'the big team' by then).

  • UPDATE =>

BOTH U.S. RELAYS BREAK 4200 FREE RELAY MEET RECORDS AT JR PAN PACS

Both meet records fell in the 4200 free relays to close day 2 of the 2018 Junior Pan Pacific Championships. The U.S. relays won both boys and girls golds, taking down Junior Pan Pacs records that had stood since the super-suit era of 2009.

On the women's side, a very young quartet went 7:57.93, taking three tenths off the meet record. The team was remarkably consistent, with all four legs between 1:59.1 and 1:59.7. They were also the only relay in the field to have all four legs under two minutes.

14-year-old Claire Tuggle led off in 1:59.32, followed by a 1:59.73 from 17-year-old Isabel Ivey, a 1:59.72 from 15-year-old Gretchen Walsh and a 1:59.16 anchor from 18-year-old Lucie Nordmann.

Their time cracked the 7:58.26 meet record set in 2009 by a relay featuring future U.S. National Teamers Dagny Knutson and Catherine Breed.

Thanks to UAC for the updates, just wanted to add some things from Day 2 before Day 3 finals start:
- Emma Weyant won the 400 IM in a 4:40.64, just about a second & a half off from the WJR! Mariah Denigan was not far off as well, with a 4:41.3, way ahead of third place.

- From the B Final of the 800 FR, Alex Walsh was a solid 2:00.79 to lead off. That would've been top 4 in Americans for the individual 200 free.

Day 3 Prelims Recap by SwimSwam: 16-YEAR OLD ISABELLE STADDEN BREAKS JR. PAN PACS RECORD IN DAY 3 PRELIMS

- Isabelle Stadden rocked an impressive 2:08.81 in the 200 back to break the Meet Record set by 2018 LSJU commit Lucie Nordmann. Kat Berkoff made the A final behind her in a 2:11.01, with Nordmann & Alex Walsh in the B final.

- Mariah Denigan & Claire Tuggle were 3 & 4 in prelims of the 400 free, with times of 4:13.49 & 4:13.55, respectively. Weyant & Mull will be in the B final tonight.

- Ethan Heasley was a 3:55.14 to qualify second for the A final of the 400 free, with Magahey & Rose in the B final.

- Izzy was a 1:00.00 to qualify second for the 100 fly A final, with Lillie Nordmann & Gretchen Walsh in the B final (times of 1:00.38 & 1:02.27)

- Urlando posted a 52.56, just off his PB to qualify first in the 100 fly.
