Swim Poll of the Week: 50% Believe Matt Grevers to Energy Standard is Most Intriguing ISL Addition

This is the Swim Poll of the Week for Thursday September 10, 2020, sponsored by Strechcordz Swim Training Products. In our last poll, we wanted to know: Which new addition to the ISL is the most intriguing?

The International Swimming League announced details for its second season that will take place in October in Budapest, Hungary, as all of the eight returning teams made adjustments to their rosters. We wanted to ask our audience what the most intriguing new addition was to the ISL.

American Matt Grevers is joining the reigning champs Energy Standard after swimming year one with the LA Current. He will be joined alongside newcomers Pernille Blume, Danas Rapsys and Siobhan Haughey as the two women will be training in Turkey with James Gibson and company.

SLEEPER: WRDARIUS SLAYTON, NYG

At 6’2″ and 194 lbs, Darius Slayton provides more size than either Sterling Shepard or Golden Tate. While his teammates operate in the intermediate portion of the field and eat into each other’s target share, Slayton brings deep speed to win downfield.
