Canada won another pair of medals on day 2 of the Short Course World Championships in the form of mixed 4×50 gold and women’s 100 backstroke silver courtesy of Kylie Masse. That gives them 3 golds and 2 silvers thus far.
While the USA has won twice as many medals, the FINA medal table gives the most weight to gold medal performances, which keep Canada in the lead after 2 days of racing. The USA picked up a second gold medal on day 2 when Shaine Casas topped the men’s 100 backstroke podium.
The nation also added two silvers thanks to the women’s 4×50 medley performance and Charlotte Hook‘s 200 butterfly swim. Katharine Berkoff and Nic Fink landed on the podium as well in the 100 back and 100 breast, respectively.
