Olympian Swim Club PASA Phoenix Swimming
Canadian Age Group Record Old US National Age Group Record New Record
1st leg Paige Kremer – 26.68 Isabelle Henig – 27.37 Michaela Chokureva – 26.80
2nd leg Emily Flowers – 26.51 Claire Lin – 26.78 Alexis Martino – 26.78
3rd leg Georgia Kidd – 27.41 Matte Snow – 26.50 Megan Reich – 27.18

Total 1:48.25 1:47.81 1:47.25

Note: Canadian age group record added just for fun, because the race was swum in Canada.

Also at the meet, which included a para division, Gabriel Martel broke a pair of Canadian Para Records. First in the 50 breaststroke, he broke the S12 record in the 50 breaststroke, swimming a 39.60, and later added a mark in the 100 breaststroke in 1:28.73 (in the final, after breaking the record with a 1:30.93 in prelims).That effort was part of a 2nd-place overall team performance, and a dominant women’s team performance, for Phoenix Swimming. They were over 300 points ahead of runners-up CAMO in the girls’ meet, and 116 points behind CAMO in the combined meet scoring.

Tristan Pruneau-Tourny took out the SB7 men’s 50 breaststroke Canadian Record as well, swimming 42.64. Martel is just 17 and Pruneau-Tourney is just 16.
