Sydney Pickrem comes into the final night of the 2019 Canadian Trials looking for her third victory in the women’s 200 IM.

Penny Oleksiak will be looking to secure her spot on the 2019 Worlds team on night two of Canadian Trials in the 100 freestyle.
It’s day two of the Canadian Swimming Trials. Five women and one man have already booked their trips to the 2019 World Championships, and more will look to join them today – including in the all-important (from a relay perspective at least) 100 frees.
