“This season’s CIS Championships proves to be a unique opportunity to showcase racing short course in the heats and long course for the finals. We like our chances racing both courses, but in particular long course as our program is set up to maximize performances at the Olympic distance. In fact, we recruit many our top swimmers on that basis. We managed to be fairly dominant at the Canada West Championships in late November and for the most part those performances have held up in University rankings 12 weeks later. We are coming off a great training camp in Hawaii and at home will be ready to go in Victoria in 10 days time. We look forward to some fast swimming in the heats and even better in the finals. Both teams look good and if they do the job they’re capable of we will be in contention to challenge for the team titles on Saturday. We are excited to be racing in Victoria, in a facility we know well.”

Steve Price’s list of swimmers to look for: 

  • Savannah King
  • Erika Seltenreich-Hodgson
  • Tera Van Beilen
  • Erin Stamp
  • Rebecca Terejko
  • Jacomie Strydom
  • Yuri Kisil
  • Luke Reilly
  • Stefan Milosevic
  • Keegan Zanatta
  • Sergey Holson
