Yes, Swimming is a Contact Sport

posted November 15, 2006 @ 10:41 PM  |  Meets, Open Water, and Other Events category


I've received many inquiries from the Dynoswim community and others trying to get a handle on the structure of this event.

There are three teams for each lane. Yes, you can implement race strategy similar to NASCAR - as in boxing in swimmers or pushing them into lane lines. No, there aren't any designated sides, places, or spots for your team in your designated lanes; you have to make your own space. "Are there any serious injuries?" I was asked. The answer is no. Carsten did sustain a bloody nose. I have a bunch of scratches and bruises, but that's all. I did however, nearly take the head off of a competing swimmer on one of my (289 to be exact) dives. I also apologized. With all the scratches and misdirection though, this is a very well organized event. As a matter of fact, the more time that passes the more fun the 24 Hour Relay becomes! By the way, yellow caps are Dynoswim.

What's the procedure for keeping track of how many meters you swam? Is there a referee or something?

There are four judges (actually more that rotate in and out of "the box"), each assigned to one lane. They sit in an elevated, enclosed, glassed-in area above the pool deck.

And you don't want to false start otherwise that 50 doesn't count.

I could have guessed that a dynoswimmer was in the yellow cap from the high elbows.
