At the 2016 Ontario Junior International Mary-Sophie Harvey has been absolutely on fire, taking down two national records in order to earn herself two wins here in Toronto.
Last night, Harvey won the 400m IM in a new Canadian record time of 4:26.42, bettering the 4:29.22 record held by Tanya Hunks since 2009 and the time that Sarah Darcel went at the Short Course World Championships in Windsor just last week.
Tonight, Harvey showed her speed in the 400m freestyle, taking down a 13-year-old NAG record set by Brittany Reimer back in December of 2003. Her time also bettered Savannah King’s 4:02.72 senior Canadian record that was set in 2012.
Harvey dropped a total of 13-seconds off her entry time, and over five-seconds off her prelims time in order to dip under Reimer’s 4:03.61 mark by over a full second. At the touch, Harvey was a 4:02.23 to also dip under King’s mark.
That swim marks Harvey’s second senior Canadian record of her career following last night’s record in the 400m IM.
Harvey’s time would have placed her fifth at last week’s short course world championships.
Following her stunning 400m freestyle tonight, Harvey swam a 2:24 in the women’s 200m breaststroke to finish second to Sarah Darcel.
On the men’s side one Canadian NAG record fell as Graysen Bernard, 14, managed to dip under 56-seconds in the 100m backstroke with a swift 55.96 performance. That time broke the previous NAG record of 56.80 set by Tai Long Singh of the Winskill Dolphins in November of 2014.
