2024 Olympic and Paralympic Trials – Day 3

May 15, 2024

Day 3 of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Trials, Presented by Bell, at the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre.

Kylie Masse solidified her spot for her third Olympic Games by qualifying in the 100m backstroke event. Masse’s experience and success on the grand stage will be invaluable for the Canadian team.

In the same event, Ingrid Wilm secured a remarkable second-place finish with a time of 59.31, virtually guaranteeing her first Olympic nomination

The 200m freestyle saw a quartet of athletes, Alex Axon, Patrick Hussey, Lorne Wigginton, and Jeremy Bagshaw (Island Swimming) – qualify for potential nomination to the 4 X 200m freestyle relay team with their top four finishes. While relay-only spots are yet to be confirmed, Bagshaw’s perseverance over his decade-long national team tenure could culminate his well-deserved Olympic debut.

In the Para events, Sebastian Massabie (Pacific Sea Wolves) etched his name in the record books, breaking the SM4 Canadian Record in the Men’s Para Individual Medley with a time of 3:00.34.

Additionally, Julia Strojnowski (Langley Olympian Swim Club) and Kelly Choi (Kelowna AquaJets) were honored with the $1,500 Victor Davis Memorial Award during the evening finals session.
