Below are the interviews with all the event winners from the final day of competition at the 2015 Canadian Team Trials.
Canada announced their rosters for the 2015 World Championships, 2015 Pan Am Games, and 2015 FISU Games following the completion of the 2015 Canadian Team Trials.
Ryan Cochrane made the Canadian World Championship team in the 400m freestyle on the third night of competition with a 3:47.50; on the final night here in Toronto he’s attempting to add another event with a win in the 1500.
Going into the final day of competition there have been 12 swimmers who have guaranteed spots on the worlds team based on Swimming Canada’s priority once selection, and it seems six more could qualify.
The fourth day of the 2015 Canadian Trials features the 200 butterfly, 50 freestyle, and 200 IM, as well as the women’s 800 freestyle and the men’s 1500 freestyle. Below is the current World Championships roster going into day four’s final session.
Prior to tonight, only nine swimmers had met the criteria, but now Ryan Cochrane, Noemie Thomas, and Katerine Savard have joined their ranks on the road to Kazan.
It seems as though the potential for at least four more spots on the World Championship roster are available tonight after four swimmers dipped under Swimming Canada’s ‘top 16′ standard during day three prelims.
