SEA Games bound and national record holder Remedy Rule is the first Filipino swimmer to see action at the prestigious International Swimming League (ISL).
DC Trident has announced last Wednesday the addition of Remedy Rule and Texas A&M swimmer, Claire Rasmus, to their roster.
“I’m so excited to add these two fierce women to the D.C. Trident Family,” said Kaitlin Sandeno, GM of D.C. Trident.
“Both Remedy and Claire have earned their stripes on the biggest stages in swimming, and we know that they’ll add to what we’re building here, not only with their performances in the pool but their spirit and passion on deck,” add Sandeno.
A versatile swimmer, Rule was a 7-time CSCAA All-American while at University of Texas.
She is better in short course than long course, as described by SwimSwam, and can range from the 50 through 200 freestyles, and also race the 50, 100, and 200 meter butterflies. She’s good enough in the backstroke and IM races, plus the 400 free, to work in a pinch there as well.
Rule is set to swim for DC Trident club at the 5th leg of the 2019 International Swimming League at the University of Maryland, College Park in USA this week, November 16-17, 2019.
This weekend’s race will be an all American derby, with all four teams from US racing against each other.
It will be the last leg for all US teams, before the Final Match in Las Vegas this December 20 and 21.
Cali Condor currently leads the pack with 947.5 points, followed by LA Current with 865 points, then DC Trident in third with 662.5 points and NY Breakers with 571 points.
This will most likely be the DC Tridents’ final meet of the 2019 International Swimming League season as they currently rank 3rd in the American standings; behind 2nd ranked LA Current by 202.5 points.
Not to mention, the team will be racing without Katie Ledecky, Annika Bruhn and Brianna Throssell in Maryland this weekend.
Only top two American and top two European teams will advance to the Final Match in Las Vegas this December.
The International Swimming League is an annual professional swimming league, established in 2019. It features a team-based competition format with fast-paced race sessions. The regular season starts in October and the Final Match is held in December.
