Poll of the Week: Have You Had the Corona Virus?


This is the Swim Poll of the Week for Thursday, February 17, 2022. Sponsored by Strechcordz Swim Training Products. In our last swim poll, we wanted to know: Have you had the corona virus?

Since the coronavirus pandemic started in early 2020, water sports alike have felt the after-effects. After-effects of which no one could have perceived and or expected.

College swimming and diving teams saw cancellations for their championship seasons. DI and DII schools were able to hold championships in 2021 while DIII schools have not had a post-season championship since 2019.

In early spring 2020, with all of the championship cancellations, many things came to mind. What about future events? Will they be impacted as well?

Before April 2020 hit, the IOC announced that the 2020 Tokyo Games would be moved to 2021. Though, as we all saw, COVID protocols remained in place during the rescheduled 2021 games.

Despite the coronavirus approaching its two-year milestone, the effects are still present. Many athletes have been unable to compete at world events due to testing protocols. World Championships have been moved for a second time but an alternative has been announced since. Also as recently as last month college teams pulled out of meets due to coronavirus concerns.

With national championship season once again rapidly approaching we’re hoping for a break in the pattern of the last two years. Georgia Tech is hosting both the men’s and women’s DI championships for 2022 in Atlanta, Ga. On their website, there is information on tickets as well as for spectator parking. Tickets are currently available for purchase.

College conference championships are in full swing once again. Be sure to keep up with coverage as the meets progress and we get closer to March.
