May. 09, 2019

In 50 Free Mia takes down the (very) old record last set by Wave’s Paula Bamburak in 1987, yup that’s 32 years past.

        She struck twice, in the individual event on the Friday then again in the lead leg of 200 MR Sunday.

In 200 Free the record that falls was by Seals predecessor Chantal Asselin, from 2008.

        By 3 tenths in prelims then even better by a second point 8 in finals.

In 200 Breast the predecessor time was by Kerri Bochen of Manta 2002, demolished by nearly 3 seconds.

       Pasted  below the chronology page for this event; very big names of Manitobans who were never Olympians.  That could change.

In 200 Fly Mia takes down another very old record last set by Seals predecessor Krista Brennan in 1984, uh-huh nearly 35 years ago.

        Not so incidentally, Ms West is hereby the first F11-12 ever to go under the 2:30 threshold in this event.

And in 200 IM the record broken was from 2011, by a Kelsey Wog of UMan; you may have heard of her.

        Obliterated, by a full 3 seconds.

Congratulations all.
