ISL Times Report: Beata Nelson Lands in Top 10 in Seven Events

The ISL regular season has ended after 11 matches. With the finish in ISL Match 11, we’ve seen the last of the Tokyo Frog Kings and NY Breakers for this season, setting their times in amber as the playoffs approach in November.

Before that happens, let’s take a moment to look at the 10 top times in each event this season. First up the women.

A few notes:

– The leader in terms of top-10 times this season is Beata Nelson, who has a time on the board in seven events: All three backstroke, all three individual medleys and the 50 butterfly. She’s by far the leader in that regard, followed by her Cali Condors teammate Erika Brown and Energy Standard’s Mary-Sophie Harvey with five each. The group with four top-10 times includes Siobhan Haughey, Anastasia Gorbenko, Sarah Sjostrom, Emma McKeon, Abbie Wood and Kayla Sanchez.

– Stop us if you’ve heard this before, but Lilly King is the breaststroke queen again. She’s the only swimmer with top-10 times in the breaststroke events, and she falls no lower than second. She has the top time in the 100 breast and 200 breast and is second in the 50. Arianna Castiglioni is the only one close in terms of top-10 times, in first in the 50, second in the 100 and 14th in the 200.

Kelsi Dahlia has a claim to the butterfly title in the regular season. She’s got the fastest time, in an ISL record, in the 100, is second in the 200 and fourth in the 50. It’s a discipline that seems dominated by all-arounders, especially in the sprints.

– Backstroke has provided the most compelling battles this season. Five swimmers have posted top-10 times in each of the three distances. Kylie Masse is arguably the leader in that (second in the 50, second in the 100, fourth in the 200) with Ingrid Wilm (fourth, first and fifth) in the conversation. Harvey, Nelson and Kira Toussaint are the other three with three top-10 times.

– Haughey’s freestyle domination is unmatched this season. Her worst placement in the league is sixth in the 50 free. She’s got the fastest time in the 200 free to go with second in both the 100 and 400.

– To the IMs, site of epic battles all season. Only Nelson and Gorbenko land in the top 10 in each IM, thanks in part to their sprint prowess. That rules out Abbie Wood, who is third in the 200 and second in the 400, and Yui Ohashi, who is the reverse of that. Both are done for the season.

– An oddity in the IM is the Canadian presence. Sydney Pickrem is first in the 200 IM, one of four Canadians in the top 10. Three are in the top eight of the 100 IM and three in the top five of the 400 IM, led by Bailey Andison. A total of six individuals account for those 10 top-10 spots.

    It’s not an “oddity” that there are that many 🇨🇦 swimmers in the IM rankings, simply proof that we have a number of good all around swimmers racing in the ISL! Worth noting that 3 🇺🇲 Olympic medalists are NCAA…
