Two Alabama swimmers collided in the warm-up pool at the Auburn Invitational on Thursday night, according to a report from WBRL News. At least one of the swimmers was apparently practicing a relay exchange and then ran head-on into a teammate after diving into the pool.
According to a spokesperson for the University of Alabama, “Both were treated in area hospitals and have been released. Neither will compete this weekend, but they are expected to make a complete recovery.”
One of the swimmers was flown out to the hospital, according to the WBRL report. The names of the two swimmers were not released.
