Canadian swimmer and Stanford commit Taylor Ruck dropped significant time in both her 100 free and and 200 back, picking up the Canadian 15-17 National Age Group Record (NAG) in the 200, at the 2017 Swim England National Winter Championships on Saturday.
Smith is one of a few National Team Toronto-based swimmers competing in England this week under Head Coach Ben Titley.
In the 200 back, Ruck won the event by over three seconds, going 2:06.87. Her previous best was 2:07.62, swum in July 2017 at the Canadian Junior Championships. Her previous best time doubles as the previous NAG.
|1st 50||2nd 50||3rd 50||4th 50|
|Ruck 2016 NAG||30.19||32.1||32.58||32.75|
|Ruck 2017 NAG||30.07||31.86||32.53||32.41|
She is now within a second of Kylie Masse‘s 2:05.97 Canadian record.
In the 100 free, Ruck split 25.33/27.63 for a 52.96, winning her event by 1.8 seconds. Her previous best was 53.92, swum at the 2015 FINA World Junior Swimming Championships. She remains a ways off of Penny Oleksiak‘s 52.70 NAG, set in 2016.
Ruck also tied the 200 free Canadian record to kick off the meet last Wednesday.
