During the second night of finals at the 2021 Canadian Olympic Trials, 14-year-old Summer McIntosh threw down a 1:56.19 200 freestyle to collect the national title and book a spot on the Canadian Olympic team.
WOMEN’S 200 FREESTYLE – FINAL
- Canadian Record: 1:54.44 – Taylor Ruck (2018)
- FINA A Standard: 1:57.28
14-year-old Summer McIntosh managed to pull out her first win of the meet here with a 1:56 to book a spot on the Olympic team in the 200 freestyle. Prior to this meet McIntosh held a PB in the event of 1:57.65 from May of 2021 and has now swum the 6th fastest time in the world this season.
Penny Oleksiak didn’t need to win this event in order to swim the event in Tokyo as she was nominated already based on her 6th place finish in the event in Tokyo. Oleksiak did finish in the top 2 though and posted a 1:57.24 for the silver medal.
Oleksiak was a bit faster during the prelims where she posted a 1:57.07 meaning that she’s been under the FINA A twice today.
Rebecca Smith was 3rd overall with a 1:57.76 which is a little bit over the FINA A but will likely be enough to get her on the team in the 4×200 relay. That’s a bit slower than her PB which sits at a 1:57.43 from earlier this year.
Next, Katerine Savard was a 1:57.79 for 4th place and could also be getting the nod for the relay after qualifying individually for the 100 butterfly on day 1. Like Smith, Savard has been a little bit faster in the past, holding a PB of 1:57.13 from 2017.
Canada has medaled in the 4×200 freestyle a few times in the past few years, taking bronze in Rio in 2016, bronze in 2019 at Gwangju.
