Canadian Record holder Maggie Macneil will kick off the 2021 Canadian Olympic Trials Saturday with the women’s 100 fly. Macneil, a rising senior at Michigan, won gold in this event at the 2019 World Championships, upsetting World Record holder Sarah Sjostrom of Sweden and coming within .40 of the World Record.
In the men’s 100 fly, 18-year-old Joshua Liendo is ranked first by 1.34 seconds. The third event of the morning will be the women’s 100 back where 2016 Olympic bronze medalist Kylie Masse is the top seed.
Markus Thormeyer leads the 100 back field on the men’s side, but he’s seeded just half a second ahead of 18-year-old Cole Pratt. Thormeyer made the finals at the 2019 World Championships in the 200 back and Pratt finished 6th in the 100 back at 2019 World Junior Championships.
Then it will be the women’s 400 free featuring top see 2016 Olympian Emily Overholt who is ranked about 2 seconds ahead of 2nd seed Emma O’Croinin. 18-year-old O’Croinin won silver in this event at the 2019 World Junior Championships.
29-year-old Jeremy Bagshaw and recent University of Calgary 5th year Peter Brothers top the field in the 400 free. Both are already under the Olympic Selection ‘B’ Time (OSBT) while Bagshaw is about 4 seconds off the Olympic Qualifying ‘A’ time.
There were only two event scratches during the first prelims session, and they were both from the women’s 400 free. 9th seed Brooklyn Douthwright and 13th seed Kayla Wilson dropped the event. This was the only race of the day for both swimmers, and they both have the 200 freestyle on Sunday.
The prelims will be broken up into two sessions: session one (men and women’s 100 fly, and women’s 400 free) at 9:30 am Eastern Daylight Time. Session two (men and women’s 100 back and men’s 400 free) will start at 12:30 pm EDT.
