Toronto Titans star Summer McIntosh is done, for now, with this ISL season. The recently-turned 15-year-old is heading back to Canada in order to start the school year back home in Toronto. McIntosh is entering 10th grade.
In an Instagram post, McIntosh said she’s “very thankful and so proud” to be have the opportunity to compete in the ISL for the Toronto Titans over the past few weeks.

In her 2 ISL matches, McIntosh made a huge impact for a Toronto Titans team that has been in excellent form so far. The freestyle prodigy showed her hand in some non-free races out the gates, swimming a 2:06.61 200 fly, and a 4:29.81 400 IM. In ISL match 5, the 15-year-old posted a massive 3:58.78 400 free, shattering the Canadian National Record.
Her ISL performances came on the heels of a massively successful summer, where at just 14 years old, she finished 4th in the 400 free at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, breaking the Canadian Record. She was also a member of Canada’s 4×200 free relay, which also broke the Canadian Record, finishing 4th. She competed in the 200 free, advancing to semifinals, where she finished 9th, one spot out from qualifying for finals. In the 800 free, her final event, she finished 11th in prelims.
Although McIntosh’s regular season is over now, we may see her return for parts of the post-season. If Toronto were to make the finals this season, it seems likely that McIntosh would be able to make the trip to compete for her team in the final match, which is set for January 7-8th.
McIntosh is the latest swimmer to have concluded their ISL regular season, following Sarah Sjostrom and Caeleb Dressel, who have also headed home for the remainder of the Naples matches.
