The University of Calgary Swim Club girls broke the Canadian National Age Group Record in the 13-14 200 medley relay competing at the CSI: 2019 meet back on June 9th.

SPLIT COMPARISON

Olympian Swim Club, 2011 University of Calgary Swim Club, 2019
Georgia Kidd – 31.11 Teagan McKenzie – 31.17
Annika Kamminga – 35.30 Alicia L’Archeveque – 33.35
Emily Flowers – 28.63 Kamryn Cannings – 29.42
Paige Kremer – 25.79 Eliza Housman – 26.03
2:00.83 1:59.97

The difference maker compared to the old record came from breaststroker Alicia L’Archeveque, whose 33.35 split was almost two seconds quicker than Annika Kamminga on the 2011 relay.

There is potential for the relay to be even faster, as both McKenzie and Cannings were off of their personal best times. McKenzie has been 30.64 in the 50 back dating back to May of 2018, while Cannings went 28.78 flat-start in the 50 fly in April at the Western Canadian Championships.

The only other NAG the club holds in long course is also in the 200 medley relay, as the 13-14 boys set the record last year (at this same meet) in a time of 1:52.02.
