EAST PALESTINE OH- It’s Olympic season, and the sport of swimming never shines brighter than it does now. But the action isn’t just in Tokyo, locally swimmers are gearing up for the biggest meet of the summer with the Youngstown Swim League Championships on Saturday morning. 8 different swim clubs will be competing, and there will be 60 events throughout the day. The meet will highlight swimmers from all the age groups, and has plenty of competitive swimming to offer. YSN will be there live streaming the meet starting at 9:00 am. The stream can be found on Boardman’s channel, or the Live Games page.
Applewood Swim coach Carlo Cordon called in to YSN’s Running Point this week to give us a preview of what to expect on Saturday. Coach Cordon and his team took the mantle of hosting this meet last minute and did a wonderful job putting it all together in a short time window. He talks with Anthony Hartwig about some of the premiere swimmers competing in the meet, seeing swimming on the national stage in Tokyo, and much more.
