The Ontario Junior International will take place this weekend Friday through Sunday at the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre, home of the 2015 Pan American Games and currently the high performance centre – Ontario.
Featured in the meet will be both four-time Olympic medallist Penny Oleksiak and her new HPC – Ontario training partner Rebecca Smith. Both have broken several age group records during their careers, the former breaking plenty of senior Canadian records, and an Olympic record last season.
Also attending the meet will be both a British and Scottish squad.
Oleksiak is only entered in the 200m butterfly, an event that she usually swims periodically throughout the season, but has yet to test it out internationally.
She’s the top seed in the 200 fly with a time of 2:08.06 (short course meters). Emily Large, who’s part of the British squad attending the meet, will be her closest competitor. With an entry time of 2:10.54, she’s just about two and a half seconds behind her on the psych sheet.
Oleksiak is coming off the short course world championships in Windsor last weekend where she was a staple on the Canadian relays and took home an individual bronze in the women’s 100m freestyle.
Smith is fresh and swimming a full schedule here in Toronto. She’s the second overall seed in the 200m freestyle behind Molly Gowans of Island Swimming, fourth overall in the 100m butterfly, second in the 50 free behind HPC – Ontario teammate Kayla Sanchez, 12th in the 50m butterfly, and first in her premier event, the 100m freestyle.
Both Smith and Sanchez are new to the HPC – Ontario this season.
