The first competition in the International Swimming League ISL came to an end tonight (Saturday) with no less than three Israeli records for the two Israeli swimmers. Anastasia Gurbanko broke two Israeli records in the 100 and 400 individual medley, with Andrea Moraz joining with her own Israeli record in the 100 free, and another great result close to the double in the double distance.
The 17-year-old Gorbanko, who already broke a European youth record and an Israeli record in the 200 individual medley, wanted to complete a series, and she did. It started with the 100 mixed, in which she set the best achievement of an Israeli swimmer in the ISL when she finished second in the ointment for the Los Angeles Current, with only Sarah Schustrum achieving it. When she looked at the scoreboard, she saw 58.21 seconds, an improvement of 45 hundredths to a record that had belonged to Amit Ivri since 2013. Ivri, by the way, was proud and spread Gurbanko’s record on Instagram, writing: “Respect! Aim! Good luck champion!”.
Less than 50 minutes later, another record was set by Gurbanko, this time at 400 mixed. The swimmer from Kiryat Bialik set a time of 4: 35.05 minutes, offsetting 77 hundredths from the record, which she held herself and was set 11 months ago in her home pool, and finished in sixth place in the ointment.
Her teammate Andrea Moraz, provided an excellent evening of her own. In the 100-meter freestyle she set a great Israeli record of 52.71 seconds. In doing so, she regained the record that Gurbanko broke for her at ISL a year ago and stood at 52.87 s. In the 200 free she was very close to another record, when with very little rest time she set 1: 54.85 minutes, only 18 hundredths of a record, and finished fourth in the ointment. For dessert, Moraz also participated in the 4×100 Free Mix Messengers. She set a 52.40 in relay jump and her quartet finished in fourth place.
The team that won the first round was Cali Condors, who scored 567 points and surprised reigning champion Energy Standard and star Caleb Dresl, who finished in second place with 463 points. Los Angeles Current, led by David Marsh and with him on the team of Israeli coaches Amir Ofer and Hila Reuveni, finished in third place with 420 points. The meeting’s MVP title was won by Lily King, thanks in large part to her dominance in the Skins ointments first held in the chest. Ryan Murphy, who won the men’s backs skins, finished second in the MVP race.
