There were quite a few big name scratches after day 1 prelims of the Canadian Swimming Trials in Victoria, with most of them coming from swimmers whose premier events are later in the meet and used this morning as a warm-up.
The three High Performance Centre Ontario women who qualified for the 50 fly A-final all scratched, led by Penny Oleksiak who had the top time of 26.40 from the morning. #3 seed Sandrine Mainville (27.04) and #4 seed Michelle Toro (27.17) also scratched. The scratches move Kennady Kilger, Danika Huizinga and Paulina Bond into the A-final.
The other big name scratch of the day was Yuri Kisil, who is out of the men’s 200 free after posting the 4th fastest time of the morning in 1:50.06. Alexander Pratt moves into the A-final after winning a swim-off against Adrian Vanderhelm after they tied for 9th this morning.
A few other Olympians scratched tonight in Rachel Nicol and Erika Seltenreich-Hodgson. Nicol is out of the 200 breast after putting up the 4th best time in prelims at 2:30.01, moving Genevieve Robertson into the A-final. Seltenreich-Hodgson scratched the B-final of the 200 free.
A few other scratches tonight:
- Hoi Lam Tam (women’s 50 fly B-fianl)
- Stephen Calkins (men’s 200 free B-final)*
- Colin Eriks (men’s 200 breast B-final)
*Calkins finished 17th in the morning, but moved up to the B-final after Kisil scratched. He then withdrew his spot in the B.
