After swimming to Olympic-qualifying victory in the 200 and 800 freestyles over the first few days of racing at the 2021 Canadian Olympic Swimming Trials, Summer McIntosh has scratched out of the 1500 freestyle final.
McIntosh was entered as top seed in the event originally with a 16:15.19 which she swam a few weeks ago at a time trial in Toronto. McIntosh would have been one of 2 swimmers in the field with an entry time under the 16:32.04 FINA A cut as Emma O’Croinin is entered with a 16:30.46.
McIntosh scratched from the 1500 after delivering powerful victories in both the 200 free and 800 free which both qualified the 14-year-old for her first Olympic Games. In the 200 freestyle, McIntosh posted a 1:56.19 to become the fastest 15 & under swimmer in the history of the event and took out pre-selected Olympian Penny Oleksiak who hit a 1:57.24,
In the 800, McIntosh threw down an 8:29.48 PB as the only swimmer in the field to crack the FINA A cut of 8:33.36. Katrina Bellio was close behind with an 8:38.12.
In addition to her 200 and 800 freestyle selections, McIntosh could potentially be selected to race the 400 freestyle at the Games considering that no one got under the 4:07.90 FINA A cut in the final and she recorded a 4:05.13 just last month.
