Kelsey takes down 3 records!

Nov. 10, 2017

Opening the new Short Course season, 3 record swims at the Odlum Brown Colleges Cup at UBC last weekend, by Kelsey Wog:

Senior Girls                                           
200 Free        05-Nov-17               Kelsey Wog      UM      1:58.38
100 Breast      05-Nov-17               Kelsey Wog      UM      1:05.80
100 IM  04-Nov-17               Kelsey Wog      UM      1:01.66

In the 200 Free Kelsey takes 6 tenths of a second off the previous record from 1993 by then-16 year-old & emerging Olympian Shannon Shakespeare.  This is a new & interesting achievement, as she has previously been almost exclusively a Breaststroke record-setter with some consequent IM appearances also; now here comes the Freestyle strength.

In the 100 Breast she now 4-peats the record entry, improving her previous best by a quarter second from February of this year, & now a second & a half under the 2003 then-Canadian record time by Olympian Rhiannon Leier.

And the 100 IM sees another repeat entry in The Book, a quarter second under her own record time from last November.  Rounding off the hat trick for an all-round powerhouse.

Congratulations to all,
