Philippines’ pride, Remedy Rule, finished second in the Women’s 200m Butterfly event at the 2019 International Swimming League in Washington DC, USA early morning Monday.
Swimming for DC Trident, Rule clocked 2:05.38 to finish behind Cali Condors’ Hali Flickenger who topped the event with a time of 2:03.81
Ella Eastin of LA Current placed third with 2:06.97
This is Rule’s best finish in her debut at the prestigious professional league, joined by the fastest swimmers around the globe.
Rule, who is set to see action at the Manila SEA Games next month, finished 7th in the Women’s 100m Butterfly yesterday, and ranked 8th in the 50m Fly.
Rule’s addition to the DC Trident family came only few days before the start of the ISL Washington Leg.
She joins another Fil-Am, Natalie Coughlin, who is a regular mainstay of the team, along with Singapore’s Ting Wen Quah who was also recently recruited to the team late last month.
Rule and Remedy debuted at the same time at the 2019 International Swimming League last Saturday.
Both DC Trident swimmers are set for a face off next month at the Manila SEA Games representing their respective countries.
At the end of the ISL Washington Leg today, DC Trident failed to advance to the Las Vegas finals next month.
It is not clear yet if both Rule and Ting Quah will continue to swim for DC Trident in the 2020 season of the International Swimming League.
