2017 Texas Class Relays - 200 Medley Video
 
01:47
Swimming News courtesy of SwimSwam.com (https://swimswam.com ) Video produced by Chris Thompson As report by Braden Keith The Texas men's swimming & diving teams held their annual Class Relay Meets on Thursday, and the results were the most encouraging results yet this season for the defending NCAA Champions. In the meet, which is one of many uniquely-formatted intrasquad meets (which are more like glorified full-speed practices) employed by Texas head coach Eddie Reese every season, the swimmers compete in a 200 medley relay and 200 free relay by class. That is to say, an all-star relay of freshmen compete against an all-star relay of sophomores, against one of juniors, against one of seniors, in each of two relays. Last year's meet saw some incredible splits from Townley Haas and Joseph Schooling, both of whom would go on to win multiple NCAA titles in individual events. This year saw more fireworks from the pair, along with their teammates. The best splits in each race, regardless of class: 200 medley Backstroke - John Shebat - 21.16 Breaststroke - Will Licon - 23.64 Butterfly - Joseph Schooling - 19.68 Freestyle - Townley Haas - 18.70 Aggregate - 1:23.18 **MUSIC courtesy of Pond5

A Day in the (Meet) Life: Stanford Women's Swimming
 
04:19
The Stanford women need little introduction as their credentials are pretty well known. As a team, they are the 2017 NCAA champions, and the 2016 NCAA runner ups. They’ve scored numerous top recruits in the country over the last few years with Coach Greg Meehan at the helm. Overall, it would seem from the outside that they’ve found a very solid foundation for their team chemistry.

Michael Andrew 200 Yard IM NAG Record, 1:45.29
 
02:16
Reported by Braden Keith at http://swimswam.com 14-year old Michael Andrew has smashed his own National Age Group Record in the 200 yard IM by over two seconds, swimming a 1:45.29 to win the event at the NASA Junior Cup in Florida on Wednesday evening. This meet, hosted by the same team but not the same meet as the NASA Age Group Showcase, has 16 & under and a 17-18 class and runs through Saturday in Clearwater. The 200 IM was Andrew's only entry on Wednesday, but it was a worthwhile one. His old best and old National Age Group Record in the event was a 1:47.42, set just last week at the NCSA Championships in nearby Orlando. In the race, Andrew just out-touched a very impressive swim in its own right from Aidan Burns of the Santa Clara Swim Club, who was 2nd in the 15-16 division in 1:45.36. Those swims were the two fastest from across the classifications. Andrew's splits, as compared to his times just a week ago: NASA 22.26/NCSA 23.28 NASA 26.13/NCSA 26.68 NASA 31.20/NCSA 31.42 NASA 25.70/NCSA 26.04 NASA 1:45.29/NASA 1:47.44 As the splits show, his times improved on every leg of this race, but the opening butterfly split of 22.26 was just really incredible. There are few 14 year olds in history who can split that fast on a 50 fly flat-start period, let alone leading off an IM. Andrew, after a 1:47.71 in prelims, now owns the four fastest times in the history of the event, with Gray Umbach being the second-best ever at 1:48.08. Reaching deeper, of the 16 fastest times in the history of the event, 13 of them belong to Andrew. He's still got some time to drop to get the 15-16 record, which right now is recognized as a 1:44.03 by Andrew Seliskar in 2013.

Practice + Pancakes: Texas Men Sprint 25's and Play 6-Square
 
06:39
Practice starts at 3:00pm, but the UT men get there early to play 6-square (4-square but with 2 more squares). The goal was to get to the King Spot and stay there for as long as possible. Once you had gotten out 3 times, you were out of the game for good. For the amount of fun they had doing it, and how competitive they got with it, I felt like I was a kid at recess. It was a blast, and totally caught me off guard.

Texas Speed Practice, The Eddie Reese Invite: Gold Medal Minute presented by SwimOutlet.com
 
12:08
Gold Medal Minute presented by http://www.swimoutlet.com: Swimming News courtesy of http://swimswam.com The University of Texas Swimming and Diving team is one of the greatest collegiate programs of all-time, and that fact was never more evident than last Friday when I witnessed practice. I've known Longhorns Head Coach Eddie Reese just shy of 30 years, and he was my Olympic coach back in 1992, so a call from him is always nice, but when he invites you to practice, that's a great call! Last Friday's session was one big test set, known as The Eddie Reese Invite: - 600 IM, 600 free - 300 IM, 300 of each stroke - 150 IM, 150 of each stroke - 100 IM, 100 of each stroke - 50 of each stroke The Longhorn Men had to swim at least 4 times fast. They suited-up and Associate Head Coach Kris Kubik was the starter…and my color analyst. (Watch out Rowdy Gaines. Kubik is A-list!) Jack Conger was clearly a highlight. His 2:38 300 yard backstroke was flawless. Based on that swim, I think Cal's Ryan Murphy is on notice. I can't wait to see them face-off at NCAA Champs in the 2-back. Joe Schooling isn't suffering any college-freshman-blues. His 2:43 300 yard butterfly was impressive, going sub 55 on his last 100, and in his 150 yard fly he was 47.9 on the way to a 1:14. I tried to captured every swim, but it was just me behind the camera. Sorry. Lesson learned. Next time I get the call from Eddie, I'm bringing backup. Many thanks to the Longhorns for the inviting SwimSwam down to film. This is a Gold Medal Media production presented by SwimOutlet.com.

Coach Bob Bowman Comments on USRPT

NBAC Head Swim Coach Bob Bowman comments on USRPT. This was a followup question regarding the success of age group swim star Michael Andrew. Bowman has been asked this question a lot over the last several months. Bowman maintains race pace training is important, but that he does not solely coach race pace training. He prefers a mix of training. Michael Andrew is coach by Peter Andrew, his father, under the Team Andrew brand.

Michael Andrew 100m Free best time

Race video edit by Coleman Hodges. Race video is courtesy of Team Andrew / USRPT / http://www.usrpt.info Swimming News is courtesy of SwimSwam.com Recent Adidas Swim-signee, Michael Andrew, was not at the L.A. Invite nor at Athens Sectionals this past weekend, but he did make his own waves at two other events, swimming at both the Colorado Zone 5 in Colorado Springs, Colorado and “Wave the Wheat Invitational” in his native Lawrence, Kansas. In Colorado Springs, Andrew raced his way to four first-place finishes over the course of the meet, starting off with a time of 23.20 in the 50m freestyle. Andrew added his second and third individual meet wins in the 100m breaststroke and 100m butterfly races, registering times of 1:03.48 and 56.06, respectively. The 16-year old wrapped up the zone meet with his 4th-fastest 50m backstroke performance of 2015 so far, a time of 26.17 to secure the event victory. Back in Lawrence, Kansas on Sunday, Andrew took on the men’s 100m freestyle event at the Wave the Wheat Invitational where he managed to blow away his own personal best in the event. Coming into the meet, Andrew's fastest outing was the 51.24 he registered at 2014 Summer Nationals. But, the young talent cranked out a speedy 50.67 in his hometown yesterday to knock over a half a second from that earlier mark, dipping him beneath the 51-second threshold for the first time in his career. The 15-16 National Age Group Record in the 100m freestyle event still stands at 49.28 held by now-University of Florida Gator, Caeleb Dressel. However, with Michael Andrew having just turned 16 in April and now positioned at the upper end of the age bracket, the NAG record in this race, as well as many others, know their spot on the record books is on borrowed time.

Texas Speed Practice, 2015 Eddie Reese Invite: Gold Medal Minute presented by SwimOutlet.com
 
09:27
Swimming News is courtesy of SwimSwam.com (http://swimswam.com/magazine/ ) To view the latest racing suit technologies visit http://www.swimoutlet.com/racingtechnologies Each fall Coach Eddie Reese and Kris Kubik host the now famous Eddie Reese Invite for the University of Texas Men's Swimming Team. Events are slightly odd. Eddie likes to make them odd to insure his men will come away with fast times since they never race those distances. Reese's Invite is really one long SPEED SET. See the event lineup below: 600 IM 600 free 300 stroke 2000 free 300 IM 300 free 150 stroke 400 free 100 IM 100 free 50 stroke Junior Clark Smith‘s 2000 free was, in my opinion, the event of the day. The guy's a machine. His splits: 1000 split: 8:52+ 1650 split: 14:39 2000: 17:44 (1000/1000 was 8:52+/8:51+) Coach Reese said this after Clark's 14:39 split at the 1650: “It gave me chills. And, I’m definitely too old for chills.” Joe Schooling's 300 free was a 2:29.61 Will Licon's 300 breast was 2:57.89. Jack Conger's 300 fly was 2:39:88 and his 150 fly was 1:13.09 Ryan Harty's 300 back was 2:40.78. The Conger v Schooling 50 fly already went live, but I think you'll like our cut of the race. Conger was 20.71 to Schooling's 20.86. After seeing this practice, I can't wait for Men's NCAA Championships, the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials, and the 2016 Olympic Games. Texas will be supplying a lot of talent in Rio. Many, many thanks to Coach Kris Kubik and Eddie Reese! Based on my experience, The Eddie Reese Invite is the most exciting SPEED SET in swimming practice history.

With Christmas training just wrapping up, most college teams are in the thick of their workload for the season. Being home for the holidays in Columbia, Missouri, I had to go see what the Mizzou tigers were up to.  The day I came, coach Andy Grevers ran a simple but effective set: 20x50 @ 2:00. Go. Fast. I love watching sets like this because the key as an athlete is being consistent, but that's not always necessarily what happens. Things can differ from 50 to 50, and you can get into a groove that means really finding your speed. It can also lead to some really fun battles, when you and another person both get into a groove and push each other to the limits. Needless to say, fun ensues at the Mizzou Aquatic Center.

Is Dressel The Greatest Yards Swimmer of All-Time? GMM presented by SwimOutlet.com
 
04:56
Swimming news courtesy of SwimSwam.com (https://swimswam.com) Gold Medal Minute presented by SwimOutlet.com (https://www.swimoutlet.com) 7-time World Championship gold medalist and 2016 Olympic champion Caeleb Dressel continues to wow us. After the 2018 SEC Championships, see his yards record times so far: 50 yard free - 18.20 100 yard free - 40.00 100 yard butterfly - 43.58 100 yard breaststroke - 50.03 200 yard IM - 1:38.13 SO MANY QUESTIONS... ONE: Is Dressel the greatest yards swimmer of all-time?  I think so. I can't think of anyone else as fast across a wide range of strokes. You could make the case that Pablo Morales is the man with his 11 NCAA Championship wins, but he didn't crush it across so many strokes.  Caeleb's got fly, free and breast locked up, with 200 IM as the bonus record stunner. TWO: Is Dressel facing off with Joe Schooling in the 100 fly at NCAAs or will he swim 100 breast?  I could see Dressel swimming 100 breaststroke, but I think he's swimming 100 fly after his 49.8 100m fly last summer.  100 breast at NCAAs appears to be an easier win, but I don't think Coach Troy (or Dressel) cares about that. THREE: Does Dressel dip under 40 flat in the 100 free?  FOUR: Is a 17.99 50 free more impressive than 39.99 100 free?  FIVE: What swimwear brand lands this guy?  He turns pro after NCAAs.... I have no clue, but it's going to be interesting to see. What do you think?  This is a Gold Medal Media production presented by SwimOutlet.com.

In the heart of October, college teams are well into their season, and looking to build strength and improve technique and strength in the water.

The Cal Aquatics Gala is a bi-annual event and fundraiser for all of Cal aquatics, bringing in alumni from all across the globe for a night of celebration and appreciation for swimming, diving, and water polo. However, the best part of the weekend? The Cal men host an alumni practice for all the swammers who come in for the event. That meant that retired Olympians, NCAA champions, and national teamers from around the world got back in the pool to swim with the current Bear swimmers.

Practice + Pancakes: UT Men + Dean Farris Tackle Fast Friday
 
09:22
It’s the heart of long course season. Teams are training hard and loading up on their swimmers. What better time to go and see what the 4-time reigning NCAA champs are up to? On this particular Friday, the Texas men were going off the blocks. And they weren’t alone either. As reported last month, Dean Farris is in Austin getting some long course work in to prepare for nationals. Hawaiian swimmer Metin Aydin was also in town for the same reason. Madisyn Cox was swimming with the guys today. What I’m trying to say is that you had training partners galore.

How Does Olympic Champion Ryan Murphy Taper? GMM presented by SwimOutlet.com
 
04:44
Swimming news courtesy of SwimSwam.com (https://swimswam.com) Gold Medal Minute presented by SwimOutlet.com (https://www.swimoutlet.com) Three-time 2016 Olympic Champion, Ryan Murphy, was all smiles at the Pro Swim in Santa Clara--because he’s nearing taper-time.  It's been nearly a year since Ryan tapered.  That's all fine by Ryan, who feels like he's gotten a lot more base-work in the bank. In this video, Ryan breaks down the difference between tapering under his former Bolles School coach, Sergio Lopez (now the head college coach at Virginia Tech) and his current Cal coach, Dave Durden. Interestingly, in high school, Sergio would drop weights about three weeks out, while Durden continues training in the weight room, albeit light work, up until a week out. After a year of heavy training, Ryan says his legs are going to need more rest--a lot more rest.  Sounds like a positive sign for fast swims in Irvine at U.S. Nationals.  What will it take for Ryan to regain the title Greatest Backstroker on Earth this summer? I'm sticking by my predictions from earlier this year: 51.79 - 100m back 1:53.57 - 200m back What do you think? This is a Gold Medal Media production presented by SwimOutlet.com.

Practice + Pancakes: SMU Men Get Innovative with Parachute Power
 
05:08
Mitch’s sprinters were doing some pretty fun stuff with parachutes. They would go 3×25 where each 25 you wold get less and less resistance. The first 25, you’d have a parachute and a partner wold be holding it for about 10 yards, then they would let go and you would blast the rest of the 25. On #2, they would swim a 25 normally with the parachute. On #3, they would take the chute off and go a 25 fast. Then they would hop out and go a 25 off the blocks, with video recording so they could watch themselves after.

06:03
Since head coach Greg Rhodenbaugh’s arrival in 2010, Mizzou has been pumping out top level athletes, with the likes of national teamers Michael Chadwick, Hannah Stevens, and Carter Griffin. I went to visit the University of Missouri to see what they had in store over winter training. I caught them just 2 days before they were hitting the road to dual Texas A&M and SMU, and it was clear they were not taking it easy.

I visited Nitro Swim Club in Austin, Texas. They’re a massive club that’s only been in existence for a decade, and the talent they produce reflects their philosophy they stand by. On the Thursday I arrived, their National group had a classic test set: 9 x 100 @ 7:00. Although that’s not quite what ended up being the case.

Beyond the Pancakes: Jonty Skinner On "Hydro" Freestyle Technique
 
03:49
Through all his years in swimming, he has learned a lot, and implements these lessons into his sprint core in Tuscaloosa now. Jonty has an interesting take on Freestyle technique, explaining it with the metaphor of pulling a rope while the other arm is loose vs. pulling a rope while the other arm is holding onto some sort of physical anchor. He calls the ideal freestyle technique "hydro freestyle" Swimming news courtesy of SwimSwam.com (https://swimswam.com) Follow SwimSwam on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/swimswamnews/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/swimswamnews Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/swimswamnews/

How Michael Andrew Recovers Between Races: Gold Medal Minute Presented by SwimOutlet.com
 
05:04
Gold Medal Minute courtesy of SwimOutlet.com (https://www.swimoutlet.com) Michael Andrew captured 5 titles at the Des Moines Pro Swim, many of which were swum back-to-back. He worked through a lot doubles. In this episode he talks about recovery between races and how he's experimenting with RPR (reflexive performance reset). As always Michael is keeping it fresh, trying new things, and he loves living and training in SoCal.  According to him he's surfing and lifting weights, though he adds that he's not hitting the gym in a traditional way. Predictions. What’s Michael Andrew dropping in the 50m free at 2019 World Championships this summer? He was 21.46 to win Pan Pacs last summer. I think anything around 21.2 puts him in the hunt for gold at Worlds, and it will set him up for a great 2020 U.S. Olympic Trials in Omaha. Caeleb Dressel? The big question is if can he get back to 21.1, his time from the 2017 World Championships where he earned gold. I think so. I think Dressel is the favorite this summer, but after Michael's breakout 2018,  he's got confidence and momentum, which matters in the nitro event. So much of the 50 free, after all the work has been done, is a head game.  What do you think?
