Revenge and triumph for Sjöström


The winning suite was broken last Saturday - but on Sunday Sarah Sjöström took revenge with a triumph in the International Swimming League. The Super Swedish won a total of four out of five branches in Naples.

On two ISL weekends, the Super Swedish has won nine out of ten branches.

The victory trip went all the way for her team Energy Standard who won the competition for the second weekend in a row. In Indianapolis, Sjöström became the MVP of the competition, this weekend she was second behind American star Caeleb Dressel.

Last Saturday Sjöström won 50 meters freely, but was hit by 100 meters butterfly by American Kelsi Dahlia.

On Sunday it was just victories.

At 100 meters freely, Sjöström won at 51.66 and was 21 hundredths ahead of teammate Kayla Sanchez, Canada.

At 50 meters butterfly, the Swedish took revenge on Kelsi Dahlia and defeated the American by 33 hundredths. Sjöström's victory time of 24.98 was just 46 hundredths above her personal record.

At 50 meters freely, a knockout competition over three rounds, Sjöström won after a heroic fight with teammate Femke Heemskerk, the Netherlands. Sjöström picked up the downside at the end and won by a 13-hundredth margin of 25.03. The swimmers only get a few minutes rest between each round.

ISL will continue this coming weekend, but Sarah Sjöström and her team will not compete again until the last basic series competition in London on November 23-24.

The final of the new money-making tour will be decided in Las Vegas on December 20-21.
