Swimming New as reported by Braden Keith / SwimSwam:
Americans Andrew Seliskar and Sierra Schmidt were named the official Swimmers of the Meet at the 2014 Junior Pan Pac Championships, capping off a fantastic week of competition for the two.
The awards were given on the strength of the fastest single swim, with preference given to those swims that broke individual World Junior Records.
Seliskar got the boys’ award on the strength of his 200 fly, which was worth 890 FINA Points and broke the World Junior Record in the event. He swam a 1:55.92 in the event on the first day of the meet to win by almost two-and-a-half seconds.
Seliskar also took gold medals in the 400 IM, the 800 free relay, the 200 IM, and was the silver medalist in the 100 fly.
Schmidt’s award came on the basis of her 8:34.71 in the women’s 800 free, which was worth 883 points, and also won by roughly two-and-a-half seconds.
She also picked up a win later in the meet in the 1500 free. Schmidt will be eligible to swim this meet again in two years, presuming she doesn’t make a senior-level international team by then.
