Due to SwimSwam’s Barry Revzin for compiling the psych sheets and doing all the mathematics for our ‘Xbox’ staff rankings.
The Worldwide Swimming League last is that this weekend. And to make it really feel extra like a conventional championship swim meet, SwimSwam has compiled season-best occasions from all 4 groups to create a meet ‘psych sheet’ of kinds.
Just a few notes:
- Occasions included are season-bests for season 2 of the ISL solely – not lifetime-bests.
- Relay cut up occasions are included alongside an athlete’s season-best, for context. Sometimes, we’ve acquired an athlete with a relay cut up however no particular person time – they’re listed on the backside of outcomes, even when their cut up suggests they’d be ranked a lot greater.
- Every staff has its prime Three athletes listed if three or extra have swum the occasion this 12 months. Groups will solely have the ability to enter two athletes per occasion, however utilizing the highest three offers an excellent sense of when a staff has a tricky lineup option to make between three highly-ranked athletes – or when a staff would see an enormous dropoff from its #2 swimmer to its #Three choice.
- Barry has additionally included jackpot traces and cutoff time traces, which is able to present when a staff may very well be prone to both getting factors stolen in a jackpot or taking a factors penalty for lacking a cutoff time.
These psych sheets don’t embody the pores and skin races, because the strokes for these races received’t be decided till we all know the medley relay winners on day 1. For a more detailed analysis of the skin races in all four strokes, check out this post from earlier today.
