You could be excused for having a sense of déja-vu watching the Women's 400m Medley. Abbie Wood had already delivered 21 points for NY Breakers in Match 1's win by almost 5s. Admittedly this time she was 0.01s slower on 4:29.89, but the points total was still 21 and her winning margin over Roar's second placed Katie Shanahan (4:34.26) narrowed half a second to 4.37s.
 

Brendon Smith (NYB, 4:03.96) went almost 2s faster and finished 1 place higher than in Match 2 to win the Men's 400m Medley for NY Breakers ahead of Roar duo Duncan Scott (4:04.25) and Luke Greenbank whose last swim in this SC event came in Nov 2016. Yes, he got a pb - 4:07.06, beating his old mark of 4:24.30 from 2014 by over 17s and scoring 15 points in the process.
 

A sub 24s tie for Energy Standard swimmers Sarah Sjostrom and Siobhan Haughey in Round 1 strongly suggested they would be contenders for the Women's Freestyle Skins Race 50m title. The pair also led Round 2 and Sjostrom emerged victorious in the final following up 23.98 and 24.09 with a 24.22 to finish a second ahead of her team mate.

Ben Proud's 24.04 swim in Round 2 of the Men's Butterfly Skins Race 50m wasn't enough to make the final. After leading Rounds 1 and 2 Iron's Nicholas Santos (24.69) lost out to Roar's Vini Lanza (24.14) in the final.
