Canada’s Jade Hannah, along with DART Swimming’s Luca Urlando, were the only two swimmers to win three events of the same stroke; not including freestyle.
17-year-old Luca Urlando won two events on Day 1 of the Mel Zajac Jr. International Meet, emerging victorious in both the 200 free and 50 fly.
A Markus Thormeyer-Luca Urlando showdown in the 200 free (with both putting up lifetime-bests within two tenths of each other within the past three months) could be a highlight of the junior-heavy Mel Zajac International Meet in Canada.
The meet will feature some top talent from the U.S. juniors and Canada.
Pratt and O’Croinin were two standouts this weekend in Edmonton.
