Aloha from Oahu on day two of the junior pan pac Championships. The Canadian Team did well again today, prelims saw best times from most of the swimmers and we had many in medal contention going into the finals. Peter, Taylor and Stefanie swam the 100 free and Will swam the 400 IM this morning. Will made the A final in the 400 IM with a best time.
At finals, I was feeling the pain for the booth officials as we had major timing board electronic issues and out came the stop watches!
Finals were very successful for the Canadian squad as Canada's Kierra Smith and Mariya Chkanovych won GOLD and SILVER respectively in the girls 100 breast and the Boys Relay team won BRONZE in the boys 4x200 free relay.
Will finished 5th in the 400 IM with another best time. Its great to see the team spirit at these meets, all the teammates cheer every swimmer on which makes it really exciting.
Day three update tomorrow, Nancy
