  4 Braden Keith | August 30th, 2014 | Asia, Featured, International, National, News

The Americans’ dominance on the 3rd day of the 2014 Jr. Pan Pac Championships in Maui, Hawaii waned just a little bit, as Japan won two gold medals and the Australians won 1. The left Team USA with just 5 of 8 golds, after winning 7 of 8 on each of the first two days of competition.

Overall, the winners on Friday were very, very young. The medalists throughout the week of competition have been fairly young, but were especially so on day 3:

  • Courtney Harnish – 400 free – 1999
  • Suzuki Hasegawa – 100 fly – 2000
  • Rio Shirai – 200 back – 1999

The pool portion of the meet will finish on Saturday with the biggest possible medal haul yet – 10 in total. This could be another day of a split decision between the United States and the visiting nations, with Shayna Jack of Australia coming up with another chance for sprinting gold, and the Asian nations seeded very well in the 200 IM.

Japan 3 4 7
Australia 2 7 3
Canada 0 3 5
New Zealand 0 0 2
China 0 0 1

    Sorry to be a pest, but didn’t South Korea get any points to go along with that bronze medal? ;-)

      Should be an 8. Looks like the official scores printout has it, but the live results scoring doesn’t. My hunch is that live results scoring won’t give points until you’ve scored male and female, but that’s just a guess.

      Updated now.
