Saskatoon Goldfins Swim Club is on the Road Again
The Saskatoon Goldfins are traveling to Edmonton, AB for the 2018 Edmonton Keyano Open - March 2 - 4, 2018. The Goldfins will be represented by 17 swimmers. This unique swim meet will feature very competitive heats and finals sessions. The meet is designed to offer three finals/event. The A Final is an open final – open to the fastest ten swimmers advancing from the preliminary heats. The B final – 16 & U (empty lanes and alternate positions will be filled with the fastest open swimmers not in an A final). The C final – 14 & U (empty lanes and alternate positions will be filled with the fastest 16 & U swimmers not in the B final, then open swimmers who are not already in the A final).
Perhaps the most interesting event featured at the upcoming meet will be the 200 IM Marquee Events.
The 200 Individual Medley Marquee Event will have the top 5 swimmers from the A final in each gender will qualify to swim in the event. The first swim will be a 200 IM, each swim after that will drop one stroke and one swimmer. The women will swim in finals on Saturday, the men will swim in finals on Sunday.
The top 4 from the first swim will qualify for the second swim. The winner of the first swim will determine which stroke to drop. The four swimmers will swim three strokes, 150m. The top 3 from the second swim will move on. The winner of the second swim will determine which stroke to drop. The three swimmers will swim two strokes, 100m. The top 2 from the third swim will move on. The winner from the third swim will determine which stroke to drop. The two swimmers will swim one stroke, 50m. There will be 1.5 minutes from the completion of each swim to the start of the next swim. The winner of each gender will receive a $250 cash prize. The second-place finisher will receive a $50 gift card.
