The Tiger Tri Super Sprint swim will take place at the James E Martin Aquatics Center on the campus of Auburn University. This event will feature a time-trial start, which means that athletes will enter the pool one at a time at 10 second intervals to begin the start of the race. Each athlete will have a timing chip on their ankle, so their individual time will not start until they cross the timing mat, just before entering the pool.
Athletes will be seeded based on their estimated swim time, allowing the fastest swimmers to start first and the slower swimmers to begin later. This structure provides the safest swim possible and allows athletes to spread out so as not to become crowded in the pool.
