12-year old Summer McIntosh of the host Etobicoke Swim Club has broken the Canadian National Age Group Record in the 11-12 girls’ 800 meter freestyle (LCM).

Swimming at a home-hosted meet, McIntosh swam 9:07.16 in Thursday evening’s distance session. That broke a 45-year old Canadian record set by Shannon Smith in 1974 at 9:12.83. Smith would go on to represent Canada at the 1976 Olympic Games when she was just 14-years old, where she took bronze in the 400 free. She swam for the Van Parks Swim Club, which doesn’t exist anymore.

McIntosh dropped more than 22 seconds from her previous best time in the event.
