Swim Manitoba Officials on Deck at National and International Meets


Kelly Garagan has been assigned as a Starter at the Junior Pan Pacific Championships in Fiji this August. It has been many years since Swim Manitoba has had a FINA international assignment. Kelly had previously been assigned as a Starter at the Pan AM Sports Festival in Mexico City leading up to the Pan Am Games. But as a FINA official this is her first posting. Congratulations Kelly!


Nationally, Swim Manitoba is being well represented by our senior officials. Kelly and Peter worked the deck at Canadian Swimming Championships as a Starter and Referee respectively. Also in this coming week, Michelle Neilson and Peter Garagan have been assigned to work at the Speedo Western Championships to be held in Victoria as Referees. Kelly Garagan and Chris Alexiuk have been assigned as Starters for the same competition. Finally, Jim Fleury has been assigned as the Meet Referee for the Speedo Western Championships. This gives Manitoba a contingent of five officials at this competition.


Thank you to all of them for committing their time and efforts representing Manitoba swimming.
