Day 1 at Canadian Age Group Champs

A cool and breezy day greeted the 900+ swimmers and coaches at the outdoor Parc Jean Drapeau aquatic complex for the firs day of competition at the 2013 Canadian Age Group Championships, but that did little to limit the performances of many of the BC swimmers in attendance, with eight individual event champions coming from SwimBC clubs.

Of the ten 200 Back events (two genders, five age groups each) just under half were won by BC swimmers with Lauren Crisp (UVPCS), Tai Long Singh, Tim Zeng (CHENA) and Edwin Zhao (PSW) all coming away victorious.

There were more gold medals in the 50 breastroke and 1500 Free, as Faith Knelson (LCSC) and Renae Ledoux LOSC) each won their respective age groups in the girls events in the 50 Breastroke, and Linda Liu (CHENA) and Colin Gilbert (KCS) won their respective age groups in the 1500.
