The Canadians continue to stay atop the competition to rack up more gold on day 2.
Day two finals of the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games have the potential for plenty of excitement and a whole lot of upsets.
In the women’s 200m freestyle American Allison Schmitt looks like a definite lock for gold. She’s been under the Pan Am Games record multiple times this year and has the experience to be much faster than any one else in the field.
Martha McCabe is one of the top swimmers who will race the 200m breaststroke at the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games. It’s looking as though the race is between herself and fellow Canadian Kierra Smith with room for a wild card to step up and challenge them.

Going into the final day of competition there have been 12 swimmers who have guaranteed spots on the worlds team based on Swimming Canada’s priority once selection, and it seems six more could qualify.
It seems as though the potential for at least four more spots on the World Championship roster are available tonight after four swimmers dipped under Swimming Canada’s ‘top 16’ standard during day three prelims.
