Pro Swim Series – San Antonio: Day 4 Finals Live Recap

2022 TYR PRO SWIM SERIES SAN ANTONIO

SATURDAY FINALS HEAT SHEET

The last Finals Session of the San Antonio Pro Swim Series will feature the 1500 free, 200 IM, 200 back, and the 100 free.

The men’s 200 IM will feature a dual between Tokyo 2020 Olympians Michael Andrew and Leon Marchand. Andrew placed 5th in Tokyo in the 200 IM, but is the #3 all-time American performer in the event (1:55.26) behind Olympic icons Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte.

Not only does that A-Final include Andrew and Marchand, but Shaine Casas, who’s the #4 performer all-time in the 200-yard IM. In addition, Chase Kalisz, the 2017 World Champion in the 200 IM, is also in the mix.

Toyko Olympians Erika Brown and Claire Curzan tied this morning in the 100 freestyle prelims at 54.84. Brown’s 54.1 from the Westmont Pro Series secures her a top-5 spot in the world, but Curzan looks to enter the Global Top 5 tonight in yet another event.

On the men’s side,  Zach Apple is the top seed in the B-Final after losing a swim-off for 8th place earlier this morning. No swimmers in the A-Final broke 49 seconds in prelims, but several high-profile athletes boast personal bests from 46.9-47.9, so we hope to see a few athletes crack into the 48-second barrier before the International Team Trials.
