This weekend was the Canby IMX/IMR Challenge meet. What does IMX/IMR really mean?
IMX stands for IM Extreme and IMR stands for IM Ready. During each season whenever you swim an event the time is registered on the USA Swimming web site. Different times score different “power points”. The faster the time the higher the power points are for each swimmer. Also, your age plays a factor in your power point score. If a 13 year old swims the 200 backstroke in a 2:12 they will score higher than a 14 year old who swims the same time.
TOP FIVE BIGGEST LOSERS OF IMX/IMR CHALLENGE
5. Bailey T. dropped 7.63 second with 4 best times.
4. Cedric H. dropped 11.33 seconds with 4 best times. Cedric also earned 1st place for his age group in the IMX Challenge.
3. Jordan Z. dropped 13.09 seconds with 3 best times.
2. Kadyn B. dropped 15.09 seconds with 5 best times.
1. Caleb C. dropped 29.06 seconds with 3 best times.
Also, a shout out to two swimmers swam events for the first time. Jeff N swam his first 200 freestyle and nearly went under three minutes. Also, Aidan J swam the 200 butterfly and the 200 breaststroke for the first time and earned his A times in both!
Congratulations to all the swimmers at the IMX/IMR Challenge Meet.
