Abbey Weitzeil Dialed In, Focused on NCAA Championship

By Dan D’Addona.

Abbey Weitzeil is dialed in.

The Cal junior has been aiming for an NCAA championship since her final swim at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

The switch to a college team after a year of individually training for the Olympics was an adjustment, one that took a full two years to complete.

“I would say that my mindset has changed a lot. When I was training for the Olympics I had a certain mindset that was hard to change. I would do what I was told and that is all I knew. One certain goal was on my mind the whole time — and it worked,” Weitzeil told Swimming World. “The adjustment was really hard for me in college. My mentality now is, instead of being so hardcore, it is trusting myself and enjoying the journey.”

That trust in herself and her training has been evident already in this NCAA season.

“I think that each year gets easier to trust in my training and my teammates and Teri (McKeever). We have been doing some new stuff and it has been working well,” she said. “My confidence has been up and I am really excited about the season.”

Weitzeil has every reason to be excited. She is coming off one of the most dominating performances of the college season at the Georgia Fall Invitational.

She won the 50-yard freestyle in 21.46 seconds, the fastest time in the country this year. Then on the final day of the three-day meet, she lowered her own school record in the 100 free, touching in 46.49 to again post a top time in the nation. She was named the Pac-12 Swimmer of the Month.

“It makes me really excited for March. Georgia is always a really fun meet. It is a great atmosphere to race in with no pressure. I have never swam as fast there as I did this year. My best was 46.2 (American record) and this is the closest I have gotten,” she said. “We have been working on having efficient strokes, while going fast. That is something I have been working on a lot personally. I am always thinking about it.”

Weitzeil is hoping that efficiency leads to the perfect swim at NCAAs.

“My goal is to win an NCAA title individually. That has always been my goal, but I haven’t been able to reach it yet. I would love to better my American record in the 50 free,” she said. “Obviously best times is a goal for anyone and I haven’t done that in a while. I would love to do that.”

It was her goal her first two NCAA meets, but she came up just short. Last year, she finished fourth in the 50 free (21.67) and third in the 100 free (46.74) and helped four Cal relays finish in the top four.

As a freshman, she placed fifth in the 50 free (21.58), eighth in the 100 free (47.79) and 18th in the 200 free (1:45.03).

“I definitely know that I can be way better. I have not had an NCAAs yet where I felt it was a really good meet for me,” she said. “Coming into college, it is so different. The meet is so exhausting mentally and physically. Plus you are so emotionally attached to what your teammates are doing.

It is such an emotional roller coaster. But it is so much fun. NCAAs is a crazy meet. It is nothing like what I have been to before. I came in only really swimming for myself, then Team USA.”

When Abbey Weitzeil committed to Cal, she deferred for a year so she could focus on training for the Olympic trials. It worked as she qualified in the 50 and 100 freestyle events to earn a spot on Team USA. In Rio, she finished seventh in the 100m free (53.30) and 12th in the 50m free (24.67). She also won a gold medal on the 4×100 medley relay and a silver on the 4×100 free relay.

“I feel like I am more open minded to different things now. I was so set on one style of training working for me in 2016 and that is what hurt me a lot my freshman year,” she said. “It was a big learning experience. Coming in freshman year, it was definitely a hard year for me. I learned a lot. Sophomore year was better, but still not what I wanted. I have grown each year, mostly mentally.”

Mentality can be pivotal for a sprinter.

“Definitely the biggest thing for me,” she said.

Weitzeil also has the leadership mentality working this year. While Cal’s captains are the seniors, an upperclassmen who has been to the Olympics obviously brings something to the table.

“I feel like my personality is helping people and giving to people, so that is a natural role I fall into. I love being a leader around the pool and around the team. I appreciate that people do trust me to lead,” she said.

That leadership has been even more pivotal this year after teammate and fellow Olympian Kathleen Baker turned pro after her junior year.

“I feel like we could be seen as an underdog, but losing Kathleen doesn’t change any aspect of that,” Weitzeil said. “We are still a great team and we can put up a great fight.”

Swimming World’s Top Five Diving Moments of 2018

By Erin Keaveny, Swimming World Contributor.

As 2018 comes to a close, its time to reflect on everything that happened this over the course of the year. Here are Swimming World’s top five diving moments of 2018.

#5) 14 year old Zhang Jiaqi’s performance in FINA World Cup

Zhang dove in her first FINA World Cup at the Wuhan leg of the competition on women’s ten meter. She won the event by 23.45 points, beating her teammate, and defending Olympic champion, Ren Qian.

While she is an impressive new face in the international diving scene, the young star has been emerging as one of the world’s best divers since before she was barely a teen. Zhang is the back-to-back Chinese national champion on 10m. She won her first national title last year in her national debut, upsetting Ren, the string favorite, only six months after she joined the national team.

Zhang, who started diving when she was seven, has lofty goals. In the interviews following her wins, she always talks about where she can improve and the hard-work she needs to put in to become a better diver.

Zhang has her sights set on a gold medal on platform in the 2020 Olympics.

#4) Daniel Restrepo Garcia wins men’s 3m at the Youth Olympics

Restrepo Garcia was in sixth palce after prelims on boy’s three-meter springboard at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires. Going into finals, the Chinese favorite Lian Junjie was in first place. And up until this point, Chinese divers had never lost an individual events at the Youth Olympic Games.

In finals, Restrepo Garcia’s strong performance and high DD list helped him find a place on the top of the podium. He could not hold back his tears of joy while he received his medal and heard Columbia’s national anthem play.

The 18 year old diver was his country’s flag bearer, and won Columbia’s first and only medal in diving at the Youth Olympic Games.

#3) David Boudia come out of retirement with a big splash.

In September 2017 three-time Olympian, and Olympic gold medalist, David Boudia announced he was coming out of retirement. But, he’s mixing things up and switching from platform to springboard. This year, Boudia competed in his first two meets, the FINA Gold Coast Grand Prix and USA Diving Winter Trails.

Boudia took home a silver medal from Australia and gold from winter trails, placing him back in the conversation as a potential medal contender for the 2020 Olympics. The Olympian showcased his consistent 307C, scoring 94.50 points in both contests.

2018 has been an exciting year for more than one reason in the Boudia household, as he and his wife announced they are expecting a their third child.

#2) Rhiannan Iffland becomes the most successful female cliff diver ever.

This year, the Australian diver became the most successful woman in the history of Red Bull Cliff diving when she won the 2018 Cliff Diving World Series, her third world series title.

Iffland also performed the highest scoring dive of 2018, a back triple with two twists in the pike position. The dive has a degree of difficulty of 4.3, and she earned 109.65 points from the judges.

She began her cliff diving career in 2015, and 2018 was only her second year as a permanent member of the World Series Tour.

#1) China sweeps the 2018 FINA Diving World Cup

The Chinese team took home all eleven gold medals from the 2018 FINA Diving World Cup. 296 divers from 26 countries competed in the seven day event.

The Chinese team dominated at the meet, which was held in Wuhan, China, taking first and second place in every individual event.

Their ten-meter platform mixed synchro team notably won by a massive 52 point margin, and the women’s synchronized ten-meter team won by 37 points.

World Record Performance of the Year: Kathleen Baker

Kathleen Baker is the winner of Swimming World’s World Record Performance of the Year after she posted an all-time best time of 58.00 in the 100-meter LC backstroke at the 2018 Phillips 66 National Championships in Irvine, California.

Original race report:

The 2018 Phillips 66 National Championships continues tonight in Irvine, California, with the best of the United States vying for spots on a number of international rosters for this summer and next year’s World Championships team.

There were plenty of shocking swims tonight, with the most impressive having to go to Kathleen Baker. The swimmer stunned the crowd with a new world record in the women’s 100-meter LC backstroke on the fourth night of finals in Irvine, blasting a 58.00 to nearly become the first woman under 57 seconds in the event and make her the fastest swimmer in the event in 2018 by more than half a second.

Kathleen Baker stunned the crowd with the first world record of the 2018 Nationals meet, nearly becoming the first woman under 58 seconds with a 58.00. Baker was out very fast, flipping nearly 6-tenths under world record pace at 27.90. She was able to hold on down the stretch to get to the wall in 58.00, breaking Canadian Kylie Masse’s record from World Championships last year while also erasing Missy Franklin’s 2012 American record and Baker’s own U.S. Open record from last summer.

The top three finishers were all under 59 seconds, with Olivia Smoliga punching her ticket to Pan Pacs with a 58.75 that improves her best time by .02. Regan Smith followed in third in 58.83, a best time and another new world junior record holder for the 16-year-old. Phoebe Bacon, who was the second seed out of prelims, was slightly off her morning time to finish in fourth in this final.

Katharine Berkoff was fifth in 59.77, which is the 17-year-old’s first time under 1:00. NC State’s Elise Haan was sixth in 1:00.08, while Ali DeLoof (1:00.13) and Lisa Bratton (1:00.55) rounded out the final.

Splashbacks: Ryan Lochte Suspended; ISHOF Complex Gets Renovation in July-Aug 2018

It’s been another amazing year of aquatics competition, including exciting trips to Glasgow for the European Championships and Tokyo for the Pan Pacific Championships, and Swimming World had our readers covered every step of the way.  During the next few days, we’ll take a look back in “Splashbacks”, the most read stories of 2018.

The months of July and August hosted many ups and downs as the swimming community celebrated the $27 million renovation for the ISHOF complex, while Olympian Ryan Lochte experienced another suspension from competition.

Each season, the National Interscholastic Swimming Coaches Association (NISCA) releases their list of athletes who have achieved All-America status. The 2017-18 All-America swimming lists included big names like Reece Whitley, Trey Freeman, Drew Kibler, Lucie Nordmann, Emily Weiss, and Amalie Fackenthal.

The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) suspended Olympian Ryan Lochte from all competition until July 2019 after he received an intravenous infusion in May. While the 12-time Olympic medalist did not receive any banned substances through the IV, athletes are not supposed to receive any sort of IV unless they have been hospitalized or have filed for an exemption.

2008 Olympian Caroline Burckle stepped forward and accused coaches Bob Bowman and Sean Hutchison of sending “sexually graphic texts” in May 2011. Bowman explained to Swimming World that he promptly apologized for the incident and his apology was accepted by Burckle.

The swimming community rejoiced in mid-July as the city of Ft. Lauderdale announced plans to complete a $27 million renovation to the International Swimming Hall of Fame (ISHOF) complex. The facility, originally opened in August 1965, has been desperately in need of a makeover and the renovations will help return many major swimming events to the Hall of Fame.

Many wondered over the course of the summer why Caeleb Dressel seemed off form at the 2018 Phillips 66 Nationals and the 2018 Pan Pacific Championships, but few received answers. It was later revealed on a delayed broadcast of the Sunday afternoon Pan Pacs competition that Dressel had been involved in a minor motorcycle accident just one month prior to Nationals.

Many in the swimming community were shocked to watch World Champion Caeleb Dressel falter and finish sixth in his signature event (100 free) at the 2018 Phillips 66 National Championships. Some questioned if it was the transition to professional swimming, while others looked to the extent of Dressel’s taper, but throughout the course of the U.S. Nationals no one had an answer.

Weight training continued to be a topic of strong discussion among the swimming community and Swimming World college intern, Kayla Riemensperger, jumped into the conversation in mid-July. Riemensperger, a proponent of the importance of strength training, examined five exercises that swimmers could use to improve their performances in the pool.

Many in the swimming community were excited for the summer’s 2018 Phillips 66 National Championships, because the meet was an important selection meet for Team USA’s 2018 Pan Pacific and 2019 World Championship rosters. However, the staff at Swimming World were excited to recognize the young 13- and 14-year-old faces that were sprinkled throughout the pool deck at the meet.

10-year-old Clark Kent Apuada achieved a grand feat in August when he downed a meet record held by the legendary Michael Phelps. Although he is not actually Superman, many were still excited to see a young swimmer take down Phelps’ 23-year-old 100 fly meet record from the 2018 Far West International Championships.

Kathleen Baker delivered the first world record of the 2018 Phillips 66 National Championships, posting a dominating 58.00 in the women’s 100 back. Baker’s time took down Canadian Kylie Masse’s 2017 world record of 58.10, while also erasing Missy Franklin’s 2012 American Record.

To close out their 2018 season, the U.S. Senior Men’s National Team has invited a few friends into town—specifically, the Italian National Team—for a three game set that starts tonight at Foothill High School, 7 p.m. (PST) in Tustin, CA.

Tomorrow the action moves to Chapman University in Orange at 4 p.m. (PST) and then finishes at JSerra High School in San Juan Capistrano on Monday at 11 a.m. (PST).

Team USA will have a variety of athletes who will get in the water for this series, including Olympians Ben Hallock—recently named 2018 ACWPC Player of the YearAlex Obert, Jesse Smith, Alex Bowen and Luca Cupido, who may end up returning with the Italians to practice with Pro Recco.

Team Head Coach Dejan Udovicic will not have 2016 Olympic goalie McQuin Baron available, so Alex Wolf—recently named a finalist for the Peter J. Cutino Award—and Drew Holland, who has traveled extensively with the national team, will have to protect the American cage from the sharp-shooting Italians.

Also absent is attacker Alex Roelse; both Baron and Roelse recently finished their studies at USC and UCLA respectively

For Italian Head Coach Sandro Campagna, all his players are professionals from the Italian Serie A1 League, which is on Christmas break.

From Pro Recco: Matteo Aicardi, Francesco Massaro, Francesco Di Fulvio, Gonzalo Echenique and Alessandro Velotto.

With them from AN Brescia are: Zeno Bertoli and Nicholas Presciutti; from BPM Sport Management are Jacopo Alesiani, Lorenzo Bruni, Luca Damonte, Edoardo Di Somma, Vincenzo Dolce, Andrea Fondelli and Gianmarco Nicosia; Roma Nuoto is represented by Francesco De Michelis and Matteo Spione.

Campagna’s squad—with Olympians Di Fulvio, Fondelli, Presciutti and Velotto—is light on representatives from the Rio Games, where the Italians captured bronze. But the squad assembled in Southern California represents the best that Italy has to offer, presenting the Americans with a stern test.

All three matches will air LIVE on Eleven Sports and at YouTube.com/USAWP. Eleven Sports is available on DirectTV, Verizon Fios and ATT U-Verse, for more information on the channel, click here.

Two Work Better Than One

Photo Courtesy: Arizona Republic-USA TODAY Sports

By Jamie Kolar, Swimming World College Intern.

Swimming is considered by many to be an individual sport, and to an extent, that is very true. We get up on the blocks for a race alone, complete the race by ourselves, and train ourselves to be better. No one else can do the work for you. There are no team drills, like passing a ball back and forth, that are done in practice that have an impact on your individual swim. Yes, there are relays that are done with four people; however, you still are swimming your leg of that relay on your own.

While swimming is largely done alone, something great can happen when you work with another person. Peer coaching is an interesting thing, as you have to be open to giving and receiving criticism from your fellow swimmer, which is difficult to do. It can be especially difficult since your teammates are not your coaches, but they have been swimming for a good amount of time and may know a thing or two. There are several benefits to peer coaching; these are just a few.

A fresh new set of eyes.

Sometimes when you have seen something over and over again, you start to miss little things that can be rather obvious. This can sometimes happen with coaches and swimmers. Coaches may have seen you make the same mistake over and over and may just miss it or forget to tell you about it after a while. When you work with your peers, you have a fresh set of eyes watching you that may be able to pick up on something that your coach missed previously. They may be able to see something that seems small but might have a big overall impact on your stroke.

New perspective.

For the most part, coaches like to stay on the deck where it is dry. This generally gives them one angle of vision when watching your stroke, which is great but may limit what they are able to see. So much of the stroke happens underneath the water and may not be visible from the deck.

However, when you work with one of your peers, they are able to float underneath you or watch you from the side to see things that your coach may not. They can change their line of sight to get a more complete look at your stroke. This allows them to see everything from your catch to your finish. There is no hiding anything underwater, and minor details are now easily visible and more readily changed.

Helping others helps you.

People say that you never really understand something until you are able to explain it to someone else. When you are peer coaching, you have to be able to explain what you see, why it is wrong and how to change it so that someone else can understand it clearly. This deepens your understanding of the stroke as well as your peer’s. You may discover that you find mistakes in your own stroke after peer coaching others. Some learning occurs best while teaching others and being able to see the change in someone else’s stroke before you try to do it yourself. Coaching someone else may just have been the push you needed to make changes in your own stroke.

USA National Team Member Erica Sullivan Deferring Her Enrollment to USC Until After the 2020 Olympics

Photo Courtesy: Peter H. Bick

18-year-old Erica Sullivan of the Sandpipers of Nevada told Swimming World she has decided to defer her enrollment to the University of Southern California until after the 2020 Olympics.

“I decided to defer for a total of two years because I’ve recently been given an opportunity to follow my dreams. When I committed to USC there was no way to predict how far I would come. Dave and Catherine have gone above and beyond to show their support for me in a situation where a lot of coaches wouldn’t. I wish the Trojans the best for the upcoming season and I still plan to join them after the Olympic cycle.”

Sullivan committed to swim at USC in June 2017, joining the stellar open water training group that featured Becca Mann and Olympian Haley Anderson.

Sullivan told Swimming World in May 2018 that she had originally intended on joining the USC team in January 2019, but has decided to wait until after the 2020 Olympic Games to join the team in Los Angeles.

Sullivan is coming off a successful year where she made the Pan Pac team and placed fifth in the 800 and ninth in the 1500 at the meet in Japan. She also competed in the 10K open water race for Team USA at the Pan Pacs, placing fourth among the Americans at the meet.

Sullivan also recently competed at the King Marlin Pro-Am Classic in Lewisville, Texas, where she posted a 15:36.52 in the 1650 and 9:17.32 in the 1000, which would have been number one in Division I at this point in the year.

Moving forward to the Olympic year, Sullivan is in the running to snag a spot on the US Olympic Team in the 10K open water race, as well as an outside chance in the 800 or 1500 pool events. Her 800 best time (8:26.27) put her fifth in the nation this year, and her 1500 (16:02.88) also put her fifth.

Erica Sullivan’s best chance to make the Olympic team would probably be in the 10K open water event. The top ten finishers from the 2019 World Championships will automatically qualify to compete in Tokyo, and nine athletes will qualify at the 2020 Olympic Marathon Swimming qualifier. Sullivan is one of the top open water swimmers in the United States along with Anderson, Ashley TwichellHannah Moore and Chase Travis. She is the reigning Open Water national champion in the 5K and was third in the 10K in 2018.

By the time Erica Sullivan gets to USC in the fall of 2020, Maggie Aroesty and Marta Ciesla will be in their senior year for the Trojans. USC was 12th at the NCAA Championships in 2018 and are currently ranked seventh in the latest CSCAA poll.

Some notable swimmers that have deferred their enrollment until after the Olympics were Katie Ledecky and Abbey Weitzeil leading up to the 2016 Games. Both Ledecky and Weitzeil qualified in at least two individual events in Rio.
